Commercial transport and business jets are increasing using more and more
digital HUDs. Anyone with an interest in this market will want to know what
the key technology and product trends are, as well as the prospects for use of
HUDs in these aircraft going forward. This report addresses that need.
The 2012 update of our original 2009 analysis indicates that the production
rate of HUDs for commercial transport aircraft has increased substantially.
This is driven by the increased use of dual-HUD cockpits and the expanded
production rate for commercial aircraft. In the business jet market, the great
recession has had more of an impact, with production rates of HUDs now
slightly lower than in 2009.
