Article: Optical Thin Film Coatings Provide Safer Flight Conditions

Specialized thin film optical coatings are currently being designed into customized displays that serve to modify the viewing angle and eliminate unwanted stray light that would otherwise distract the pilot(s) and crew in commercial and military aircraft cockpits.

The precision optical coatings, customized by Precision Glass & Optics are integrated into specialized light-emitting diode (LED) displays that are then installed into military and commercial cockpits. The operational wavelengths and requirements are carefully customized for sensitivity to nighttime lighting conditions. PG&O’s design for a precision filter makes it easier for a pilot to read indicators and displays in all lighting conditions, even at night. This advanced technology resolves what has formerly been a very serious challenge in military and commercial cockpit display/lighting ergonomics.
