Universal Display delivered eight novel wrist mounted phosphorescent OLED Displays built on thin flexible metal foil to the US Army. In co-operation with LG Display and L-3 Display Systems UDC are demonstrated a fully functional display and communication device.
The devices were presented to the military for evaluation and testing, and were showcased at the U.S. Army’s C4ISR On-the-Move testing environment last month at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where they received positive feedback by senior leaders who make critical research, development and acquisition investment decisions.
The eight units each contain a 4.3″ QVGA full-color, full-motion AMOLED display using amorphous-Silicon (a-Si) TFT backplanes designed and fabricated on thin metallic foil by LG Display. The front planes were then built on top by Universal Display using its high-efficiency, full-color PHOLED technology and materials. The use of Universal Display‘s PHOLED technology enables these displays to consume less power than comparable AMLCDs, an extremely important feature to lighten the load of electrical power requirements. Designed and integrated by L-3 Display Systems, the units offer various advanced communications features, all integrated into a thin and rugged housing that comfortably fits around a soldier’s wrist.
