Need help with CPD frame measurements
« on: July 13, 2014, 06:37:28 AM »
I am trying to build a cpd frame/bezel to be used with lightning Cpd software bit i cannot find a way to know where to place the frame buttons to have them aligned with the labels on the screen is there a template somewhere that i can use to calculate the button position?
Thanks in advance

RE: CPD Bezel Push-button Layout

The Raytheon CPD is a retrofit upgrade that is installed onto the existing F16 Center Pedestal-
(See the attachment below, for a further description of the CPD system)







The twenty-six individual backlit push-buttons are arranged in a 5 x 8 pattern on the CPD bezel as shown:





Screen generated "soft-labels" appear next to each active push-button, showing the "context-sensitive" push-button function for that screen.






A description of this CPD system appeared in Raytheon's "Technology Today" in 2009, on pages 13-15
(see PDF extraction of the article in attachment below)

Which version of the CPD software is in that screenshot? 3 or 4?

No i have not as of yet.  I recognized the screenshot due to the threat circles on the map and the callsign i was using for testing as the time. You know the generic one it gives until you make a logbook.  Some few folks have it for testing and improvements now. I am working out of town for the next couple of months so it will be a bit before i consider a fully public release.  Its made specific for Strings pit as well as mine. There are more features i need to add as far as adding support for keystroke control instead of just dx buttons so the masses may enjoy it. It runs super smooth and fast. Written in c# and opengl.

Eric-

Good to hear from you!

I had used a few of my file photos as examples of the CPD functioning...  I wasn't sure who had written the software shown on the Threat Map display photo... or I would have given you full credit!  Several members have CPD displays (through String's first run, or Taipan's second run) but not everyone has the software running yet.  Looking forward to your public release when it is available.
