Key contracts signed in global microdisplays market:
In September 2012, DigiLens, Inc. was awarded with a US$ 7,50,000 U.S.
government contract to continue with Phase II development of a wide view color head mounted display (HMD) with curved visor prototype. Key elements of the contract included development of a unique optical manufacturing process where traditional free-space or analog holographic recording processes transitioned to digital holographic contact copy mastering processes.
In August 2012, eMagin Corporation was awarded with a contract from the U.S. Navy for R&D of a high-brightness 2,000 x 2,000 pixel OLED microdisplay.
The contract was of US$ 2.4 million and the proposed work in the contract leveraged the accomplishments of prior Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) OLED programs and further improved the OLED performance.
