Aircraft head-up display manufacture


THALES Optics, specialises in the design, development and manufacture of electro-optical systems, sub-systems, modules and components to meet the needs of defence, aerospace, civil, industrial and space markets around the world.


In October 2005, Grant Instruments was approached to provide temperature control systems for two wet benches to coat glass sheets used in head up display modules in military and civilian aircraft. We were asked to improve an original design. The process requires rapid heating and cooling of individual tanks within a 25 – 35°C temperature range.

Skill and technology

The combination of Grant Flow heater technology and re-circulating chillers and system integration combined to give us the building blocks to rapidly develop a system to make measurements.
