This four-screen configuration is the latest Orion crew exploration vehicle command module display and controls console flight deck design from the designated 606 Lockheed Martin vehicle. The Orion's avionics are being developed by Honeywell and are based on Boeing 787 electronics. However, NASA sources indicate that the seat the pilot-astronaut is sitting in, while wearing a Shuttle orange launch and entry suit, will in fact be a couch design that could connect with the suit. The hatchway to the Orion's docking collar can be seen in the bottom half of the picture.
