DARPA taps dpiX for military LCDs

The Defense Advanced-research Projects Agency in Arlington, Va., is supervising a project at dpiX, a Xerox New Enterprise company in Palo Alto, Calif. (http://www. xerox.com/dpix) to develop high-resolution reflective-mode display technologies that could provide land warriors with digital maps, real-time video, and other important information.
