The Need:

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.
