In the third part of his four part series, Glover discusses the
architecture of Release 9's Integrated Flight Displays (IFDs),
built to enhance reliability and provide better mission readiness.
The dual-architecture allows each display to perform the functions
of the other, ensuring full redundancy with no need for special
Instead of being "daisy-chained," each display has its own set
of computational modules allowing for peer-to-peer data exchange
and comparison. If a single-point failure occurs, components can be
turned off during flight; this prevents the single-point failure
from affecting other critical operations that can lead to an
overall system failure.
In addition, if a component requires maintenance, the system
quickly and effectively identifies the line-replaceable unit (LRU).
Due to the IFD's modular design, the LRU can be easily pulled for
repairs or replacement without need for reconfiguration or
