Overhead touch screen display solution for the cockpit

The Korry Utility Control System (UCS) from Esterline Technologies Corp., a touch screen display and control solution for cockpit overhead panels, is a unitary, high-reliability digital replacement for multiple control panels. It can be updated or reconfigured via software. Users can customize the look and feel with open-architecture optics, electronics and software, mechanical packaging, mechanism design, and human factors design. The system comes with a life-of-the-aircraft glass screen with antireflective and antifingerprint properties. Features in the Korry UCS include a high-bright and high-contract display that is readable in direct sunlight at wide angles.

The low-profile Korry UCS – ranging in size from 3 ATI (3.2 inches) to 15.4 inches – also has a low power draw
