HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eMagin Corporation, or the Company, (NYSE American:EMAN), a leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced that the Company, under contract from Collins Aerospace has delivered the initial displays that are being installed in helmets for flight tests scheduled this year.
These custom-designed Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) displays are key components in the F-35 Helmet Mounted Display Systems (HMDS). eMagin commenced development of this microdisplay in 2013 with the mission of providing a helmet display that has superior contrast with no “green glow” inherent in the previous display. Lockheed Martin’s F-35 test pilot, Tony “Brick” Wilson, stated that the eMagin OLED display “not only reduces green glow, but it completely does away with it.”
“Our development efforts to support the F-35 Lightning II helmet have kicked into high gear,” commented Andrew G. Sculley, CEO of eMagin. “We will continue to deliver displays throughout 2019 and beyond, while concurrently working closely with the Collins Aerospace team to further improve the display in preparation for Limited Rate Initial Production (LRIP).”
