Integrated Control Panel

The ICP (Integrated Control Panel) is the main interface to the other systems of the F-16. It is used among others, to enable weapons, selection of navigation settings and selection of radio communications. Together with the DED (Data Entry Display) the weapon system and activity are monitored, making the handling of this system easier. In a certain sense, the ICP is the keyboard and the DED the monitor of the system. The ICP, DED and HUD together build the UFC (Up-Front Control). The side-consoles are used as back-up systems, if a failure of the ICP occurs. More information can be found at the EFALCON 1.10 documentation. The ICP is located beneath the HUD on the center console.
