Army chooses Microvision to design wearable displays for medical applications

DECEMBER 21, 11:19 EST

FORT DETRICK, Md. -- Leaders of the U.S. Army's Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA), Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) at Fort Detrick, Md., needed a mobile wireless personal display system for medical applications. They found their solution from Microvision Inc. of Bothell, Wash.

Army medical officials awarded Microvision a $3.3 million contract to develop a head-worn mobile display solution based on retinal scanning display technology.

The contract supports the Army's INFOMEDIC concept -- a mobile medical system that will enable military surgical personnel and medics to access, read, and transmit important medical data via a head-worn display, wearable computer, and wireless network.

Microvision will develop the INFOMEDIC display over the next 16 months by building on the company's design of the Nomad Personal Display System, company officials say. Nomad is a 'see-through,' high-resolution, daylight-readable, head-worn display that merges electronic information into the user's field of view.

The Nomad display enables users to work hands-free and head-up in any lighting condition, allowing them to access information anywhere As a result, the Nomad system delivers major improvements in situational awareness, productivity, safety, and precision and provides greater versatility for mobile applications than alternative display solutions.
