OLED Display for Army Field Testing

Universal Display has delivered eight wrist-mounted phosphorescent OLED displays built on thin flexible metal foil to the U.S. Army Communication Electronics Research and Development Engineering Centre (CERDEC) for evaluation and testing. The wrist-mounted displays were also 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 from senior leaders who make critical research, development and acquisition investment decisions.

The prototype wrist-mounted flexible OLED display devices (Figure 3) were designed and built as part of a U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) funded programme to develop a thin, lightweight and ruggedised communications device. During simulated exercises at the Fort Dix facility, the wrist-mounted devices were shown depicting a number of different sources of information, including a real-time unmanned air vehicle (UAV) video feed and various other images received through computers running different applications. These devices have the potential to provide soldiers with advantages in the field that could mitigate risk and improve operational performance. The eight units each contain a 4.3-inch 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-colour PHOLED technology and materials.
