Universal Display (UDC) logoUniversal Display has been awarded a $500,000 extension to a successfully completed Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract from the U.S. Army Communication Electronics Research and Development Engineering Center (CERDEC).

This extension builds on previous advances Universal Display (Ewing, N.J.) made in developing full-color, active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays fabricated on a flexible metal foil substrate, based on the company's proprietary technologies and materials. The focus of the contract extension is to incorporate a laminated protective layer to the flexible AMOLED display, as well as to develop additional communications functionality and to integrate the display into a wrist-mountable housing.

At the completion of the program, Universal Display will deliver two of these prototypes to the U.S. Army.
