October 20, 2015

L-3 Aviation Products (L-3 AP) announced today that its Display Systems division has signed a teaming agreement with Baanto International Ltd. The agreement establishes a relationship that will offer a family of high-performance multi-touch avionics displays to be marketed to military and commercial aircraft customers.

“This agreement to adapt the existing Baanto™ ShadowSense™ touchscreen to our avionics displays will enhance the capabilities of our touchscreen-enabled products and increase market adoption of Baanto’s advanced technology,” said Bruce Coffey, president of L-3 Display Systems. “The advanced false touch/palm rejection features, gloved touch operation, and superior optical and EMI performance of the Baanto technology will give avionics customers a multi-touch capability that provides the intuitive and reliable user interface expected by today’s pilots.”

The Baanto ShadowSense multi-touch technology is geared toward larger display formats and is available in sizes from 12 inches to over 98 inches. The feature set and capabilities that customers expect in large-format cockpit displays are now complemented by five or more simultaneous touch points.

“We are excited to be working with L-3 to develop touchscreens that will empower flight crews to perform critical tasks faster, more accurately and with the utmost confidence,” said Avanindra Utukuri, CTO and executive chairman of Baanto International. “ShadowSense is designed to outperform all other touch technologies, especially in demanding situations and challenging operating environments. Having a globally recognized company such as L-3 select our technology for its next generation of products reinforces the quality and reliability of ShadowSense and its leadership in the industry.”
