Polymer Display to Benefit Covert Operations

Photonics Spectra
Jan 2002
The National Imagery and Mapping Agency, through the National Technology Alliance Program, has selected Cambridge Display Technology to develop a prototype handheld red/near-IR monochrome light-emitting polymer display, designated as a covert red/IR viewer. The military and the intelligence communities will use the device in their Situational Awareness and Planning Systems. The display is easily viewable during daylight and nighttime operations, or it can be adjusted for exclusive use with night-vision goggles, which reduce the probability of detection.

The company says its light-emitting polymer displays offer thinness, wide viewing angles, energy efficiency, a fast refresh rate at any temperature and near-IR characteristics.
