OLED microdisplay maker eMagin has been awarded a $2.5 million US Army contract towards a high-brightness, full-color direct-emission OLED microdisplay prototype project. The project includes the development of manufacturing process technologies
The prototype that eMagin will develop will be used in AR systems that provide both sensor and tactical data to soldiers.
This 2-year project will further improve the efficiency, brightness and lifetime of eMagin's proprietary direct-patterned, full-color OLED microdisplays by incorporating additional technological advancements.
eMagin says it is anticipated that upon the successful completion of the prototype, a follow-on production agreement may be issued without the need for a competitive process.
