Modern avionics provide a comprehensive human-machine interaction. The modern electronic displays are the key components of any glass cockpit based aircraft employing the state of art avionics and are being increasingly used due to two main reasons: firstly, the continuous advancements and improvements in the electronic display technologies, and second being the progressive changes in the onboard data distributing and processing methods in both military and civil aircraft. In this article we have discussed several electronic display devices and relevant technologies for avionics display use especially with reference to the head-up displays. These display technologies have been analysed with reference to the avionics display requirements and vital parameters like size, resolution, brightness, flicker, shades of grey, contrast, color, power consumption, etc.
