Southwest Airlines awarded GE Aviation a $40 million contract to provide the SDS-6000 large-area display suite for Boeing 737 Classic aircraft. First production deliveries will take place in early 2011. The systems will be installed on up to 150 aircraft. The GE solution comprises a complete integrated cockpit display solution including primary flight displays, standby instruments, and control panels. The primary flight displays, designed to mimic the appearance of the B737 Next Generation cockpit, feature 15.4-in widescreen displays with patent-pending dual-channel display architecture. The displays feature integral signal and video processing and graphics generation, eliminating the need for a separate symbol generator.
