eMagin, renowned for virtual imaging technologies and Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) microdisplays, declared that it has been awarded a $1.12M worth contract from the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR).
This project will stabilize the WUXGA OLED microdisplay of eMagin for mass production. This innovation has dual use applicability with its highest resolution full-color microdisplay.
The development of WUXGA OLED microdisplay was financially supported by the U.S. Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC). The prototype display is being offered to military contractors and commercial OEM customers. A result of this SBIR project, the 1920 x 1200 px OLED microdisplay will be a cost-effective tool serving a range of military and commercial applications.
eMagin President and CEO, Andrew Sculley said that the WUXGA microdisplay, with higher resolution and HD 1080P, low power and excellent high-contrast technology is the company’s most versatile OLED product. Personal displays and military display applications will benefit from the low-power affordable OLED HD resolution facilitated through the SBIR funding. The product portfolio includes high-performance simulation and training systems, motion cameras used in both military and commercial applications, entertainment and gamming headsets with true 3D stereovision, and electronic viewfinders (EVFs) for high-end digital still.
The SBIR project will commence in February 2012 and will continue for another seven months, extending with an additional six month option period to optimize the display furthermore.
