Macro-Blue, Inc. Announces Its Next Generation of Tactical Cockpit Displays for Airborne Law Enforcement

New Surveillance Technology Enters the Cockpit

Macro-Blue MB Q Series Tactical Cockpit Display

Macro-Blue, Inc., a manufacturer of Tactical Cockpit Displays for use in Aviation Law Enforcement, announces its next generation displays for aerial surveillance.  The MB Q-series displays are engineered with the new Macro-Blue Advanced Graphics Processor Platform designed to bring superior intelligence to passively displayed camera or mapping system videos.  These “Q” series displays are a quantum leap in technology—displaying 4 video signals simultaneously—offering the Tactical Flight Officer a combination of up to 4 videos on one screen.  Every MB Q display comes standard with 4 3G-SDI inputs (high-definition digital video) to support an HD camera and mapping system.  The remaining SDI inputs allow for plug-in sensors such as less expensive tail boom, hoist or skid cameras.

The Advanced Graphics processing platform offers solutions to some undesirable characteristics that plague surveillance displays.  When on a mission, fractions of seconds count, so the MB Q displays are engineered for “near instantaneous switching” between input sources. Macro-Blue’s Signal Lock™ technology “locks” onto the signal, seamlessly and instantly acquiring transmissions, eliminating screen black-out (an issue that occurs when corrupted data is received from a camera or mapping computer).

All Macro-Blue displays are engineered and designed specifically for harsh aviation environments and used by aviation law enforcement, government, firefighting and broadcast news.  The company’s mission specific technology has proven to operate with sustained reliability.  The new MB Q displays incorporate fewer components than the previous generations resulting in fewer failure points with significantly less power consumption. The Q-Series efficient processing consumes 50% less power than earlier models. Moreover, the displays are passively cooled, eliminating any moving parts and dust contamination complications.

The MB Q-series include Full HD displays renowned for unparalleled sunlight readability and superfine brightness control.  The MB Q displays with the NVIS option incorporate the widest contrast range in the industry. Because it meets MIL STD 3009 direct from the factory, customers save the expense of paying for additional NVIS filtering.

The MB Q displays are shipping this quarter. Demonstrations of this new technology will be conducted at ALEA Expo 2017, July 24-29, in Reno, Nevada or contact Macro-Blue at for detailed specifications and information.

Macro-Blue, Inc. manufactures high-definition, tactical cockpit displays for the Airborne Law Enforcement industry.  MB displays are designed for optimal readability in sunlight and NVG operation.  These feature-rich displays are engineered and manufactured in the United States, using military grade components and connectors for optimal reliability and performance.
