    Thommen Multi Function Displays for AW129

    Thommen, December 20, 2019 - MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND – Thommen Aircraft Equipment Ltd is pleased to announce first deliveries of its digital Multi-Function Display (MFD) replacement solution for legacy CRT displays installed on AW129 helicopters.

    Thanks to a proven track record in critical flight instruments and to inhouse LCD design, cutting and laminating capabilities, Thommen was awarded the task of developing and supplying a retrofit solution for older mission displays installed on the helicopter, which are no longer supported on the market.

    This custom-made self-contained, NVG-compatible display unit will allow operators to extend the lifetime of their fleet, while also benefitting from the latest technology in digital flight displays. The system converts analog information and processes color and composite video signals to provide accurate navigation and mission data to the crew.

    Thanks to its rugged design, optimized for special mission applications, the product will sustain the harshest operational requirements.

    Thommen's display retrofit portfolio responds to the growing need of fixed and rotary wing operators looking for cost-efficient and reliable replacements for their aging CRT or first-generation LCD displays, for which there is often no spare-part, repair or overhaul solution anymore.

    The AW129 MFD is designed and manufactured in Muttenz, Switzerland, which once again confirms Thommen's resolute ambition to be THE specialist in tailored display products, made in Switzerland.
