The Subaru Bell 412EPXs will be fitted with four six-by-eight-inch displays that show primary flight, navigation, and engine data, as well as system synoptics, weight and balance, and checklist information. In addition, the system will display high-definition video from multiple inputs and provide night vision compatibility. “The Badger Pro+ system gives the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force enhanced situational awareness to reduce pilot workload and exceptional video capabilities for mission support,” said Astronautics president Chad Cundiff, adding the system is designed with color, contrast, letter sizing, and fonts that provide enhanced viewability and a wider viewing angle. Further, the display package includes new advisory vertical approach capability, clear presentation of the helicopter terrain awareness and warning system, and seamless interface with other avionics, including advisory vertical approach guidance for areas without approved SBAS/WAAS approaches. As for video capabilities, the system accepts four video formats, including those involving either analog or high definition, and displays the video in full and split-screen modes with pan, zoom, and rotation functionality.
