VDC Display Chosen to Supply Pilot Training Projection Systems.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — VDC Display Systems, a division of Video Display Corporation (NASDAQ:VIDE), reports it has received in excess of $2.5 M in additional purchase orders for high resolution simulation display projectors for delivery over the next 6 month period. The advanced projection display systems and spares ordered are for the advanced SimuSphere visual displays being used extensively to support high-fidelity simulators for the F-22, F/A-18 and F-16 flight simulators, providing for a full range of training maneuvers.
Company CEO, Ron Ordway, stated, “The continuing demand for VDC’s advanced projection display products for simulation and pilot training programs is further reinforcement of management’s decision to aggressively transform the markets serviced by VDC. As we have moved away from consumer product markets and concentrated on the government, medical and industrial market-space for our products, the consumer direct-view TV tube market now accounts for less than 2% of VDC’s annual revenues and profits.”
