BELLEVUE, Wash., 6 Dec. 2007. Saab Avitronics has chosen eMagin microdisplays for its new Multi-Purpose Virtual Image Display (VID). The unit comprises high-performance magnifying optics and the OLED, sealed in an aluminum casing.

Saab's compact VID is suitable for combat vehicles, aircraft, helicopters, and naval vessels using a wide range of sensors such as electro-optical, infrared, low-light television, and radars. Its collimating lens provides a comfortable viewing distance even at very close range. Sealed in an aluminum casing, the VID offers a compact, lightweight, rugged alternative to legacy CRT-based systems.

"Saab's VID will save valuable space inside cockpits; its collimating lens delivers an easy-to-read image regardless of the viewer's proximity to the screen," says Susan Jones, executive vice president, eMagin Corporation. "Their design illustrates how well OLED-based microdisplays can deliver a projected image."
