Abstract : The report compiles the characteristics of various state-of-the-art color cathode ray tubes (CRT's). The structures, theory of operation, and technical advantages and disadvantages of the various color CRT's for use in aircraft display instruments are evaluated. The results of the study were that presently available types of color CRT's are not suitable for cockpit displays and the Penetron and other non-patterned screens could be used in low ambient light areas.
