Are there specifications or requirements for LEDs on aircraft display panels?

DSIAC subject matter expert (SME) staff reviewed various Service and Joint Service requirements for LED requirements when used in aircraft displays and for display night vision imaging system (NVIS) compatibility.  A report was provided with reference details into typical requirements for NVIS-compatible LED aircraft lighting, along with case studies and lessons learned as guidance for application in a new or retrofit design.
