HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y., Feb. 28 -- eMagin Corp.'s organic light-emitting diode-(OLED) on-silicon microdisplay technologyy has been selected for the version 1.0 helmet-mounted displays (HMDs) for the US Army's Land Warrior program. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Land Warrior, part of the Army's drive to digitize the battlefield, is an integrated digital system that incorporates computerized communication, navigation, targeting and protection systems. The new HMD is the latest in commercial-off-the-shelf designs to provide soldiers with enhanced capability on the digital battlefield.

Kaiser Electro-Optics, a Rockwell Collins company and the principal contractor for the Army's Land Warrior HMD system, will integrate eMagin's full-color high-resolution SVGA+ (852 x 600 triad pixels) OLED microdisplays into its compact monocular HMD. The Army expects to eventually equip more than 40,000 soldiers with the Land Warrior system.
