Vuzix has completed delivery against an OEM order from a leading defense firm

Vuzix has delivered a custom-designed waveguide and custom light engine that are intended to be used in head borne systems designed for military applications. This initial development program was part of a phased effort that would ultimately address a broad market for US and allied military personnel. These customized waveguide-based display engine prototypes offer a high brightness, high index waveguide design with a wide FOV (field-of-view) for a variety of field operational conditions.

"We have been working closely with this defense contractor over the past 18 months to design, produce and deliver a solution that can be integrated into many head worn products," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "We look forward to future opportunities from this work and ultimately potential volume deliveries, and we will continue to develop and refine the waveguide and display engine technologies, including advancements such as our recently announced Incognito technology, that defense contractors need and want for their next-generation solutions.”
