The LCD0803 display is a member of RDDS' range of Ruggedized Airborne Mission Displays. The compact display has been designed to be used for surveillance and display high-resolution SVGA images.

The LCD0803 is one of many long standing and solid designs. It continues to be a popular monitor across many platforms.


The fully ruggedized display contains these additional features: Movable and Sizable Picture-in Picture, NVG Compatibility, Built-in Test Monitoring with LED Alert Illumination, Image Swap and Freeze, plus RDDS’ proprietary M.I.S.T.™ image enhancement technology.
