DISPLAY CONSOLES The Computer Display
SET AN/UYQ-21(V) uses several types of display
consoles, depending on the configuration of the
system in which the consoles are installed. These
consoles include the TDS Display Console
OJ-451(V)/UYQ-21(V), the Display Control Console
OJ-535(V)/UYQ-21(V), and the Projection Plotting

OJ-451(V)/UYQ-21(V) The TDS display console is
the main operator interface with the operational
program in a tactical system. The TDS display
The TDS display
console consists of the computer display console, the
basic display unit, and a TV monitor. The TDS
display console uses a vector scan CRT.
DISPLAY CONTROL CONSOLE (DCC)
OJ-535(V)/UYQ-21(V) The DCC is the main
operator interface in the command and control subset
of the AN/UYQ-21(V) system. The DCC consists of
three modules: the digital data indicator (CRT display
module), graphics display shelf (bullnose), and the
control panels. The DCC interfaces with the system
computer through a television converter. The DCC
CRT is a raster scan CRT. Sensor sweep and video
are not normally displayed on the DCC.
PROJECTION PLOTTING UNIT (PPU)
PT-525/UYQ-21(V) The PPU is a large screen
display that projects computer-generated symbols on
a 42 x 42-inch screen.
TELEVISION CONVERTER GROUP The
television converter group develops the composite
signals needed to display graphics and alphanumerics
on the DCC, PPU, and automated status boards. The
television converter group can also drive the hard-
copy printer-plotters used in the AN/UYQ-21(V)
system. Depending on the system configuration, the
television converter group will have one or more of
common digital television graphics
generator (C-DITEG), digital television graphics
generator (DITEG), dual television scan converter
(Dual TVSC), tactical DITEG module (TDM), and a
central automated status board generator (CAG).
GRAPHICS GENERATOR (C-DITEG) The
C-DITEG is a multichannel device that can drive up
to six DCCs, two PPUs, eight text-only displays, and
two hard-copy printer-plotters.
generates the composite video required to display
symbols, graphics, and text on the DCC and PPU.
The C-DITEG develops a tabular video for text-only
display (TV monitor). It also provides the interface
between the DCC switch panels and the system
GENERATOR (DITEG) The DITEG provides the
display for a single PPU or DCC. The DITEG
operates in a manner similar to the C-DITEG in the
generation of the tactical video for display on the PPU
DUAL TELEVISION SCAN CONVERTER
(DUAL TVSC) The DUAL TVSC mixes radar
sweep and video signals with the tactical symbols into
a single raster scan composite video signal for display
on the DCC.
TACTICAL DITEG MODULE (TDM) The
TDM combines the features of the dual TVSC and the
C-DITEG to drive one display control console, one
TV monitor, and one hard-copy printer-plotter.
CENTRAL AUTOMATED STATUS BOARD
(ASTAB) GENERATOR (CAG) The CAG
converts computer-generated alphanumeric data into
a composite video signal. The CAG can drive up to
16 TV monitors simultaneously.
