F-35B/C pilots have begun testing new F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System with eye-popping Organic Light-Emitting Diode displays pic.twitter.com/R5IJPRKEaf— James Drew (@JamesDrewNews) September 18, 2017
@trashcanman its not a glow problem its a dimmer switch that needs to be manually shifted by the pilot landing at nights vs day.

like "The Wire" the scripts write themselves. UploadVR, ugh.
Not exactly a ringing endorsement but we'll take it (not much in the way of particular knowledge of the sector but a dense Green Glow surrounds this company and his take makes sense as a cursory understanding)
Kopin, you might have to hand over those Dynasty vases you confiscated from the guy (you know) for this act of Industrial Espionage
Their new Twitter Sitter Has a Screw Loose, eMagin Inside! Thanks Jim (Just repeating crap and not knowing the products)

Six15s Darwin AR Glasses uses eMagin displays, I think all their hmds do as well, the ad looks a little like John Wick III but good gun ballet is hard to do
What if BAE and Elbit and Six15 came out of the wild blue yonder and showed the Silicon Valley types how to do this? Be cool
I wrote this 3 years ago so AS knows now the Army Air Corps became the USAF in 1941, yes, it's understandable as events in eManistan occur at glacial speed...(But the Kopinistas Truth Squad might be even slower to process this or are just in denial..."NO WE ARE NOT IN DENIAL!")
Customer Announcement AS gave us at the end of the Q&A. For the first time in public AS alluded to the JSF F-35 "situation" in reference to the cost of a Helmet in development he mentioned or words to the effect that the display in a $350,000 Helmet is not going to be inexpensive. Actually he was low-balling the cost. The recently cancelled BAE Helmet Program cost per Helmet was Approximately $350k. But Lockheed pressed hard for the Elbit Helmet and won the argument over a cost conscious Pentagon. The Elbit-Rockwell Helmet's cost is in the $500k neighborhood. I heard a rumor elsewhere that a better display is in the offing for the F-35. Sculley mentioned obliquely the program as not a large but one with a High Dollar Display, that fits, because I believe the display will cost north of $30k per. Testing for the F-35 is done at Pax River in Maryland, that fits and coincidentally Paxtuxent Naval Air Station is where the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) is Headquartered. And of course it is they who are footing the bill for the High Brightness Displays's development. I construe that the eMagin folks are looking forward to this not only for the high cost and high margins but it's a pretty damn prestigious placement. Thanks Andrew for the Missing Link. Army Air Corps, Air Force, Navy, so what.
