This Company is a Black Box, does anybody know anything about them? C'mon Derrick Dig! They are a subsidiary of Honeywell UTC. I do not know if there is a Thermal Clip-On that does not use an OLED Display. But I could be convinced otherwise.

More Advice From the Yahoo Board, Stop Being the Armies R&D Arm! (I'm detecting some frustration with the share price so they take it out on BAE and Sensors But Nobody Cares. Sad!

I have been hoping Dan Cui or someone there would push them out of the mentality of being an R&D arm of the military. It is time to start promoting and pushing products for profit. Grants and design contracts are not going to produce the kind of revenue necessary to maintain their edge in the market when the big boys get interested.

Anti-Sensor Backlash Grows on Yahoo Message Board! (Unlikely they will see it Jnas so I'll take the liberty of registering your outrage here, we do not sensor anything here)

Emagin management, if you're listening, why not promote your new devices 1) with at least a respectable bit of disclosure and hype about the key Emagin technologies in them, and 2) with a consistent brand label showing that they are Emagin products versus all this "Blaze" distraction! Mindless marketing of SENSOR-based products from a company that should be selling DISPLAYS.

For Example: eMagin WUXGA in the New Rockwell-Collins Integrated Digital Vision System, see Video Below

For Example: Rockwell-Collins MV-35 (Microviewer) eMagin OLED in Monocular Display

Maybe, maybe not, the F-35 HMD with ForthDD LCOS displays in the HMD is having problems qualifying, the displays are slow and not lining the symbology up with the target and the guns. The pilots are unhappy. Rockwell is no stranger to LCOS or OLED.

Will 2017 be the watershed for businesses using augmented reality?

The U.S. Military Will Bring F-35s Into Service Without Finishing Them.Pilots have reported that the helmet’s displayed symbols can lag behind their eye’s movement while they are flying through turbulence or being buffeted during hard maneuvering. Whether the gun is actually combat suitable or not will not be known until realistic operational test results become available in 2020 — at the earliest. The Navy and Marine Corps F-35 variants will have even more serious gun accuracy problems because both use an external gun pod with an unavoidably less rigid mounting than the internal cannon. Firing this pod creates recoil forces that pull the plane’s nose down, potentially creating worse effects on accuracy than the F-35A’s muzzle door.

Somebody gonna get the Skyhook?

C'mon guys, it's the liitle things

Nothing wrong with a sense of urgency

last CC Andrew (Covers Apple for Oppenheimer) Urkowitz said "Yes, things seem to be exciting." Thus time "Things are exciting!" There you go.
He did seem bummed about The Donald election in regard Apple and Trump's Non -Bromace with Tim. Oh well, recent event proved him out.They do have to have an advert campaign that provides their bona fides. Sell as Tactical, every damn thing now is tactical. Stress eMagin's military experience, the special relationship they have with the Spec Ops Command. Heck, throw in the Oasys sight that eliminated the Somali Pirate threat. Rehearsal for Abbotabad Raid was with Intelligent Decisions and your HMD. If I was advising that would represent part of the campaign. Build brand awareness, right now on a scale of 1-100 it is 1. Ads at Night Vision Depot, Tactical Gear and Military Gear, great. Go to Shot Show etc. Let's get rolling on the Social Network Launch. And then the REI side. The Ski Haus, all that. Then Preppers, they know what's coming. Get going.

Real-Time 3D Holographic Chat Now A Reality

eMagin has requested a License for Export

should receive a decision in January 2017. For the State Department to arrive at a finding so "expeditiously", kidding, they must have applied over a year ago.

Z800 was sold to anyone willing to buy it.

Of course other eMagin Products, Kopin, etc are sold overseas. But not Night Vision, not to just anyone. Wondering if the Thermal Camera, as sensitive and closely guarded as portrayed falls into that category. Is it  Munitions Control? I'm sure they thought of this. If not, that cuts the Addressable Market down a bit.

Share Worldwide? "Share" different than "use" worldwide.

Remove the cloak of darkness and discover nature’s night side. Start your own journey and experience new adventures with BlazeTorch. Put on BlazeTorch and move through the night, hands free. Record your adventure in HD quality video. Upload and share your adventure with night time enthusiasts worldwide on the Blaze night portal. Bring On The Night with BlazeTorch!

Oops, better check the ITAR restrictions, were lifted on VGA, not sure about these.

Keeping in mind that winter in Russia, Sweden, Norway, Alaska, Scotland etc

allows approx. 5-6-7 hours of daylight.

Device BlazeSpark the smartphone makes eMagin's night vision device: I rest my case, you're on Alexey

Meanwhile Dr. Fan is trying to figure out how to crack the consumers nuts and I quote

"So I think the biggest item coming up to see is the mobile, how is Kopin going to crack the consumer nut?"

The Competition, anything here look user friendly or not cheap?

Not Friendly, Not Cheap

Most consumers aren't Techies not conversant with specs, fov, contrast, resolution etc

they are looking for performance, feature friendly, ergo, etc that said, temperature range is something that would interest.

Alright Jimmye, I was wrong there are many States that allow Hunting at night.

and the use of Electronic Night Vision Devices is permitted in many States. These laws were written when a widely available Head Mounted NVG was not on anyone's radar. A brand new Category of device.Very interesting. Could easily end up in Gander Mountain, Cabelas, many kinds of specialty partners.

Just thinking of Outdoor Use Cases

Preppers (They know it's coming)
National Guard, Reserves
Local Search and Rescue
Fire Departments
Loss of Power
Working on Lines at Night

If the Number of Stories on BlazeTorch coming out of Russia are any indication of interest in "Night Vision for Everyone" and with

with President The Donald's impending reapproachment with Russia perhaps Torch will be the Russian Military Standard Issue in the coming days.

Guttag Filling Sandbags...Guttag "unsees" the light...

"Is it really Doctor Wu?"

small investment in eMagin, probably OLED in Magic Leap, few days later oops, eMagin too expensive blurry, probably LCOS. Always back to LCOS. Trying duplicate what he did  pumping Himax's highly pumpable stock. "Discovered" Himax in Google Glass back in the Mezozoic. Even bragged how he pushed Himax's Market Cap to never before seen heights in his previous post. He's sees more shit in Magic Leaps video than Sturgill Simpson on a 30 day acid trip.

Spark Translate inside the tweet (Russia)

Consumer eMagin BlazeTorch night vision device is priced at $ 999 (Russia) "Night Vision for Everyone!"

Principal Display Engineer (Microsoft)

Why did this exchange provoke hilarity from Sculley and Lucas?

Jeffrey Lucas
Aaron, this is a collective launch, we are being careful off. And the reason for that is because obviously we are not a large company, we don’t have immense working capital at our disposal, we have to use it very selectively and carefully. So we’ve done this very sort of specialized launch here. And as we get validation – further validation in the marketplace, as soon as [indiscernible] exploring ramping up. But at this point in time, we want to make sure, one, we have enough with the existing interest out there; but secondly, that we are in a position that we are not exposed – overly exposed, but in the other hand, we can ramp up pretty quickly.
Aaron Martin
Got it. Sometimes you talk about the inventory, a lot of it being display that you could theoretically use for other products?
Jeffrey Lucas
Yeah, and it’s not theoretically, we know we can use it for other products.
(Edit: Both laugh loudly)
Andrew Sculley
It’s true. Absolutely.

Don't worry Santa, Google Pixel compatibility is in the pipeline

Spark Available Dec. 5, Torch not until Dec 30, any Rev this year will require a Spark. Let the Marketing Begin

Nice Follow-up with use cases: FLIR Ocean Scout for example is Handheld and $2k, hard to steer and hold the Scout simultaneously; music evokes boat wrecks and Jimmy Buffet whose boat was shot up by the Coast Guard when he would not acknowledge their order to stop for search, very clever Dan, Fernandez too but that's too sad.

Because the most inexpensive NVGs like the PVS-7 that Ralph invented many years ago, even now, are in the $2k to $3k range. Still with Intensifier Tubes that makes it looks like you are looking through a toilet paper roll.

This sounds good...

With the superior night infrared technology and other features of the products, we expect them to be equally attractive to law enforcement, first responders, utility companies and others who work at night. Importantly, we are launching these new products at disruptive price points compared to existing products on the market. As such, we believe eMagin has the capability to significantly expand the market for these applications.
“We remain focused on our milestone approach to driving shareholder value for the remainder of 2016 and into 2017. While not reflected in our financial performance during the quarter, we are making considerable strategic business progress as we advance our microdisplay technology, expand our presence in our existing markets and penetrate new ones. We believe eMagin is the only Company whose products can meet the brightness and resolution requirements for high-pixel density displays that these markets demand,” continued Mr. Sculley.
The Company remains focused on the following objectives to drive shareholder value:
  • Advance our product development discussions with Tier One companies to incorporate OLED technology into their next generation products,
  • Further penetrate high growth commercial/industrial markets including medical devices and other vertical markets where integration of our OLED microdisplays and optics technology advances product development and adoption,
  • Expand our presence in existing and future major military programs and overall customer count in domestic and international military markets,
  • Launch new products focused on the consumer market which offer high performance and broad appeal at an attractive price,
  • Advance discussions with high volume production partners to utilize our leading production and process technologies, and
  • Continue our progress in manufacturing improvements including yield enhancement and production capacity expansion.
Third Quarter Results
Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $4.3 million, down 20% from the third quarter of 2015.
Product revenues totaled $3.5 million, 24% less than third quarter last year, primarily due to lower volumes from maturing military programs partially offset by a lower average price due to product mix. R&D contract revenues totaled approximately $769 thousand, consistent with the third quarter last year.
Overall gross margin for the third quarter was 30 percent on gross profit of $1.3 million compared to a gross margin of 20 percent on gross profit of $1.1 million in the same quarter last year. The increased gross margin for the quarter reflects a favorable impact of higher production volumes as inventory is built for the consumer products launch.
Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2016, including R&D expenses, increased to $3.7 million from $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter operating expenses reflect higher spending on the development and marketing of our consumer products as well as the costs associated with the consolidation of the Company’s finance and procurement functions.
Operating loss for the third quarter increased to $2.4 million from a loss of $2.2 million in the third quarter last year. Net loss for third quarter of 2016 increased to $2.4 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, from a loss of $2.2 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015.
At September 30, 2016, the Company had approximately $6.9 million of cash and cash equivalents compared to $9.3 million of cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2015. During the quarter we increased our R&D investment and began to build inventory for our consumer product launch.
The Company continued to make improvements in technology and product design.
  • The Company is completing qualification of the XGA (1024 x 768) display which is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2017 for consumer and industrial applications that require cost effective medium resolution microdisplays.
  • The Company’s direct patterning development work under the Defense Manufacturing, Science and Technology program (Man Tech) progressed during the quarter and is on track for completion in 2017.
  • eMagin’s direct patterning technology has generated significant interest from our military and commercial customers. We will be offering direct patterned displays to our military customers in the second half of 2017.
  • The Company’s direct patterning production equipment has been upgraded by the equipment manufacturers based on our design changes to provide significant improvements in display performance and higher production volumes. The upgraded equipment has been re-installed during the fourth quarter with fabrication samples expected by the end of the quarter.
  • Product development on the 2K x 2K full color RGB microdisplay, eMagin Corporation’s largest microdisplay design, which expands the Company’s product offerings for the consumer and commercial marketplaces, is on schedule to produce engineering samples. Select customers, including the customer with whom we entered into the license agreement in December 2015, will receive samples beginning in December. Associated products are expected to be generally available in the first quarter of 2017.
Q3 Business and Product Highlights
The Company continued to make progress towards its goals of winning new U.S. military programs while expanding its presence in foreign military, commercial and industrial markets.
  • Beginning to deliver displays for the Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) phases of the U.S. Army’s Enhanced Night Vision Goggle III (ENVG III) and Family of Weapon Sight-Individual (FWS-I) programs. Shipments under these programs are expected to accelerate beginning in the fourth quarter 2016 and continuing into 2020.
  • Entered into a multi-year agreement with a major European defense company that manufactures thermal weapon sights and goggle systems that continues through 2018 and totals in excess of $3.5 million in display sales.
  • Awarded a new production contract for a European military helmet mounted display system for augmented reality training and simulation. This order will provide displays for initial production in 2017 with follow-on orders expected for several years.
  • Received an initial order for a military air defense missile system which will be deployed in 19 countries. Production is scheduled to last through 2020, followed by long-term maintenance and support.
  • Notified by a major medical device company that eMagin’s HD-plus resolution WUXGA display has been selected for the next generation of surgical equipment. This further establishes eMagin’s presence in the medical device field and follows a large order in the second quarter from another major medical device company.
  • Prepared for launch of first two consumer products, BlazeSparkTM and BlazeTorchTM, for night vision. Click for Release.

eMagin Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results
HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 2016-- eMagin Corporationor the “Company” (NYSE MKT:EMAN), a leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced financial results and corporate highlights for the third quarter endedSeptember 30, 2016.
“While our third quarter was impacted by the previously announced softness in our domestic military business due to lower volumes on maturing programs, we are now beginning to ship under new military programs and expect volumes to increase in 2017,” said President and CEO Andrew G. Sculley. “Additionally, we announced today the formal launch of two consumer products. This is an important step for eMagin as we capitalize on our intellectual property and know how to pursue new, potentially high growth markets. We are pleased that, with our product launch in this new market segment, we were named a 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (“CES”) Innovation Award Honoree in the Digital Imaging product category. Click for Release.
“Importantly, we are in active discussions with multiple Tier One companies who recognize the superior functionality of our industry-leading OLED microdisplays for consumer applications. Progress in these discussions has recently accelerated as we address prototype designs and a path to high volume production.
“The low-power, high resolution, small form factor of our leading OLED microdisplays are finding their way into a larger number of applications and markets compared with just 12 months ago. We continue to see further traction in industrial markets as we received another design win from a leading medical device company who has chosen to integrate our microdisplays into their next generation surgical device. We also continue to see expanding interest for our technology among foreign militaries where advanced night vision and high-resolution avionics applications remain relatively underpenetrated.
“The technology in our new consumer products complements the expertise we have accumulated over the years developing leading solutions for our US military and commercial customers. We are able to enter the market for consumer and industrial night vision systems at what we believe is a disruptive price point which could result in a significantly larger market size than what is available for existing products. Not only are these new markets large, we believe they could provide eMagin with attractive gross profit opportunities over time.
“We have also made enhancements to our organization to better match our resources with future growth opportunities. Our re-aligned sales and marketing team is focused on our key end markets, including commercial/industrial, foreign military and our domestic military business. We recently made several key hires including a Vice President of Business Development who is spearheading our discussions and negotiations with potential Tier One partners and a Vice President of Operations to oversee our yield improvement program as we prepare for higher volumes and a more complex products mix. Also, we have completed the migration of our procurement and finance teams to Hopewell Junction to work hand-in-hand with the production, sales and marketing, business development and R&D groups.”

eMagin Announces New Products for the Consumer Market

Hunting, yes for Coyote and Hogs where allowed. Could help in the gloaming if you feel you could convince DNR the sun ...

NIR no help w/ obscurants but IR markers should have sufficient range for most uses

is up enough or has not set enough for deer hunting... of course, no bears, moose, elk etc. in the dark. But observing from a deer stand in the dark would give you an idea where trails are, number and size of the prey. There are enough crazy bastards out there to base jump, parachute, rock climb as well as more sensible types who can ski, hike, observe those nocturnal critters out there. Will not mention that anybody can buy these. Wonder how Law Enforcement will approach that. Intriguing. Wonder how the crash tests dummies did wearing these in a high impact, collision scenario.

LIke The Pollsters on Tuesday I Was Wrong.

We anticipated what we wanted, assumed. They designed a unique device. The only one similar is from FLIR. A handheld Thermal Imaging Camera for iPhone 5&6.  Of course they were not going to build a device to compete with those they are working with or working with potentially. The price point for the Spark is attractive. The Torch, hands free, zero latency, SXGA, Revision Mil-Grade Goggles and flip-up capability has a lot more potential.
