eMagin logo neweMagin announced today that the OASIS system has been selected by the US Army to provide 20,000 units of the Remote Eyepiece Display-Imager (RED-I) head mounted display system for the Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS) Remote Viewer program. The RED-I system is equipped with eMagin's OLED-XL microdisplays.

The IDIQ contract awarded to OASYS exceeds $26 million with multi-year production rate deliveries scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2009. The new RED-I product features instant-on startup at temperatures down to -40C, extended battery life, and is compatible with both new and legacy Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS) systems. The HMD attaches directly to standard-issue military helmets or protective eyewear, is thin enough to fit behind the blast visor of the cupola protective ensemble, and is backwards compatible with previous versions of the system.
