Product description

The central data processing and display unit in the cockpit of the A380 is a cockpit and display system that was developed in cooperation with the system manufacturer Thales. This system is the central interface between man and machine. All relevant information can be displayed for the pilot via a total of eight units, each of which comprises a liquid crystal display and a graphics computer. For the first time, the CDS is operated using a keyboard and trackball, thus ensuring full interactivity. This system is an enhancement of the Electronic Instrument System (EIS), which was also developed by Diehl Aerospace and Thales and is deployed in every A320, A330, and A340 type of Airbus. Compared to its predecessor, however, the new Cockpit and Display System in the A380 offers a whole range of innovations and represents another step towards the paperless cockpit.
