Northrop Picks Z Microsystems for Army Vehicle Display Systems

ArmyGroundVehicleNorthrop Grumman has selected Z Microsystems to produce widescreen panels for a team led by Northrop and BAE Systems that is pursuing a contract to build a U.S. Army infantry fighting vehicle.

The BAE-Northrop team is one of two groups that hold a technology development contract for the Army’s Ground Combat Vehicle program, Z Microsystems said Monday.

Z Microsystems will produce seven displays per vehicle, then ship the units to Northrop and BAE.

Each ruggedized widescreen panel is designed with touch-activated controls that work to give soldiers a low profile footprint, as well as physical chassis to manage temperatures inside the vehicle and resist moisture, dust and debris.
