Mira Mesa-based Z Microsystems said it received a $1.2 million contract for ruggedized computer displays from aircraft builder Boeing.

The screens will go aboard Boeing’s Advanced Warning and Control System (aka AWACS) military aircraft. Specifically they are for the Block 40/45 upgrades for the U.S. and French governments.

The screens are packaged in an aluminum “battle shell” with handles. They offer picture-in-picture capability as well as dual and quad view.

Z Microsystems will deliver the product through 2014.
