Aircraft Cabin Systems and Gulfstream Jointly Develop HD LCD Video Monitors and Touchscreens for their New G650 Business Jet

Aircraft Cabin Systems, LLC and Gulfstream Aerospace, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), have developed state-of-the-art HD LCD Video Monitors as well as LCD Touchscreens that interface with the advanced technology Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS) used on this new Gulfstream business jet aircraft.

Three new HD LCD Video Monitors have been developed. A 26” Credenza monitor enhances the passenger video viewing experience. Two bulkhead monitors (26 and 17”) are strategically placed in the Cabin to facilitate passenger crew rest viewing.

The monitors display all current standard and high-definition video resolutions available from the GCMS which uses a noiseimmune, fault-tolerant, fiber-optic distribution technology. The system adheres to the Gulfstream Cabin-Essential® design philosophy. This means most single-point failures will be resolved or mitigated automatically.

Two new Touchscreens, one using a 10” LCD screen is located in the Galley and the other using a 5.7” LCD screen is located in the Vestibule. These locations allows for easy Cabin Crew accessibility. The 10” is also used for pre-screening video sources as well as controlling a multitude of Cabin functions such as window shades; video programming presented to the Cabin Video monitors, etc.

Aircraft Cabin Systems is a leading designer and manufacturer of Cabin Inflight entertainment products in the Business and Commercial Aviation market. Video Monitors ranging in size from 10.4 to 65 inches are currently flying on various types of aircraft including those from Gulfstream, Airbus and Boeing. Gulfstream and ACS have been developing the G650 Monitors and Touchscreens since 2009. They will be standard on the Gulfstream G650.
