NeoEngress Backlight System

F/A-18C Backlit Panels (Whole Cockpit Package)

Product Description

This package includes all the translucent panels in the F/A-18C cockpit which are illuminated by the cockpit backlight system. Metal housings with embedded light plates like the MFD bezels are not part of this package. 

All the panels are CNC milled out of solid translucent materials, and painted with a hardened black finish with proper laser engraved markings. They are all fitted with a 5V powered NVIS green backlight system carefully designed to ensure even backlight distribution. 

Each backlit panel comes with its own lighting PCB and coaxial power inlet connector on the back. The panels are mounted over anodized aluminum back plates fitted with screws made to look like Dzus fasteners. 

Pleae refer to the following photographs for backlight results on our engineering prototype. For more detailed panel specs such as back plate mounting hole dimensions for your components, please write to us. Our engineers will help find a best solution for you.

Split Packages

Inquiries on splitting packages are also welcome although it is beyond our capabilities to offer them in a more separated way for now.


Your input helps us prioritize future productions. We take advantage of professional manufacturing facilities to guarantee the quality of our products, it initially takes high volume productions to kick start a new product, but as more of them get sold and more inputs we gather over time, it may be possible to consume volume productions with relatively smaller but diversified purchases.


We keep a record of demands on split packages and will keep you posted when they become available in the future.
