US Approves $75 Mln Sale of Javelin Anti-Tank Missiles (eMagin displays in the Javelin's Command Launch Units) to Georgia (Apparently Georgia is increasingly worried about Florida Aggression)

kidding, can Russia's armored upped T-90 survive a Javelin? In other Defense News the Israeli's are kicking themselves for answering the phone when the Indian MOD called about Rafale's instead of Javelins. When will they learn?
Wonder if anyone is selling Javelin's on eBay? Have to look.

$20k, not kopin..Chinese National Sentenced for Illegal Buy of Military Night-Vision Goggles

“Because of the realness and the immersion that you get with these new technologies … [they are] increasingly more capable of training folks without having to use the actual” aircraft, tank or vehicle, he said.

Guide to Trijicon Thermals at SHOT Show: eMagin Inside

Why is it so much better? (Thermal Weapons Sights display used to be Kopin and now it's eMagin)

oh...

Guy: can I buy one and send it to my bud in China?

FBI: where are you now?

Guy: click


A few months later, I shipped out to Iraq and only used night-vision optics. Meanwhile, my thermals sat in my wall locker collecting dust.
Today, almost 12 years later, the quality of resolution in thermal optics — such as the Trijicon REAP-IR mini thermal riflescope — has improved drastically. In fact, the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) protects the clarity of the image resolution.
Although it is not uncommon for most weapon systems or optics to receive a blanket ITAR restriction, the argument could be made that the REAP-IR justifies protected status because of it.

in addition we have not had much luck with products that begin with E and end in Sight, so proceed with caution

Comrade Steve

an hour before your post some a guy started screaming about Insurance companies and the lack of coverage for eSight. I simply pointed out his seeming derangement and the fact that eSight has just finished it's clinical trials at Johns Hopkins among others.  As it's deemed a Class I medical device after clinical there are still lots hoops to jump through.  Review, results, determinations. therapeutic modalities etc then the Insurance Companies will start all over with it again. In what universe is a $10,000 device approved by "We want the business,  approve it and  buy it from us."

If you need your Dr. Phil emotions on display the yahoo bored is for you

eSight just finished their clinical trials in the States but by all means be outraged

Transferability, right


Kevin Dede
Okay. So in refining the manufacturing process and attempting to eliminate risks, do you think it makes it more transferable? To me, that's the big question, right? You're trying to line up partners to help you manufacture to volume. And over the years, you've hit a couple of spots here and there when you've gotten -- you've had to work through manufacturing issues. And I'm just wondering, do you think you're at a point where you feel you could transplant that process into someone else's fab? And if so, when you do finally solidify that arrangement, how long do you think it'll be -- it would take you to get up and running?
Andrew Sculley
Certainly, we can transfer our manufacturing. We do have some different processes, so we would need to work with the mass production partner to put the tools in that could handle that. But I don't see that as a problem. I've been in a number of OLED efforts, and this one is certainly capable of being transferred somewhere else. It's not an issue. And how long does it take to build an OLED line, as you can go out and ask some of the people who build OLED tools, and that's 12 to 18 months. That's just...
Kevin Dede
Okay. So Andrew, just as a ballpark, if you were to solidify an agreement with an outside manufacturing partner, it might not be until about the same time next year that they'd be up and running?
Andrew Sculley
Well, that's a rational statement, unless, of course, the manufacturing partner had tools that satisfy the same requirements as ours, right?

I'm having a hard time figuring how anyone thinks that a Chinese company Goertek and Kopin, 10% owned by Goertek and a development partner could ever buy a company which produces devices that are Restricted from Export to China.

People go to prison for trying to sneak ONE out of the country. These programs are Line Items in the Defense Budget. That makes it impossible to share that technology with any ITAR Restricted Nation. The Memorandum of Suspension of Munitions Export to China has never been changed. The State Department amended  ITAR regulations to allow eMagin VGA displays to be exported for non-military use for varied purposes to nations which are not barred from receipt. But that's it.

The mocking starts in earnest when Scoble begins discussing Hololens about 12 Minutes

https://www.facebook.com/RobertScoble/videos/vb.501319654/10155782424564655/?type=2&video_source=user_video_tab

NO IT HAS NOT! DEBUNKED, CONFIRMED

I wear my biases on my sleeve but I would to see somebody over there make a case for Kopin. I know there are holes in my understanding but so far their most eloquent and knowledgable and persistent defender is Trader980 at Stocktwits. Check him out, he knows his stuff.

link to the right for Stocktwits.

It worries me that smart people think Kopin is a possible buyer. All they have is a fading military presence, some "pinhole" HMDs and the Whisper Chip which is iffy, other tech is there performing the same function,

their attempts at generating interest is laughable. The XR Immersion suit is a bad joke, Scott Sight redundant, Fire Warrior is still there and selling a few, a small niche and  selling a few Realwear in Canada I guess.  The "Elf"?  "Why is it so dark?" the reviews say. Vuzix, ah, have you worn one? Solos, Everysight will kill that. What they have is a CEO constantly talking about Raytheon ad the halcyon days. And now they are sending development samples to companies of their OLED displays made by Olightek. which the Chinese think are junk. I get the restlessness and worry but please give these guys SOME credit. Mort, I imagine is feeling a bit of a sting from the Opium crisis at his Upper West side society Balls and might want to reduce his interest in that in that at some point. A Billionaire always needs a backup plan and selling this company for more than $3.00 could work for him.  Who is suffering? The shareholders. How is the company doing?You can choose to believe him or not but many have used the term "inflection point" (ahem) in the past. Very premature those statements but below sounds like "inflection point" to me. The big guys are still out there and AR and VR are coming. So, are the display going to Direct View or Micro? If you think it's Direct View than sell. Otherwise,  I get, I feel our pain but I recognize it as  the Stockholm Syndrome.
 Back to Kopin for a sec. Look at the Scoble interview with Fan.You good at reading body language? I am. Oy.

"Achieve with confidence." I did not see Lucas say these things but it was not difficult to imagine. Don't give up the ship.

Jeffrey Lucas
And just to add to that a little bit here. They impacted us really in the month of July and the beginning of the month of August. So we're back up to speed now. We also have a second tool here as well. And what I think as critically important is to speak to what our new VP of Operations here is doing because he's making a world of difference for us. He has yet to put them on - the practice in place that he had established and he followed as much larger predecessor company. That's really working on our favor here. And Kevin, that is, quite frankly, key right now because our orders are picking up, our customers are asking for shortened lead times, and thanks to the work that Joe is doing, our Head of Operations, we're able to meet that, achieve that with confidence. And that's why it's super important in terms of what he's doing. So it was very problematic, as we pointed out, in the first month, primarily, of this quarter. But that's behind us, and we're taking a lot of measures now, not only to upgrade our systems but to ensure there won't be -- to minimize the risk of repeat [indiscernible].

Change in Control Agreements, Thanks Lurker

Golden Parachute?


On 
November 8, 2017, we entered into Change in Control Agreements (the “Change in Control Agreements”) with four of our executive officers, Steve Costello, Amalkumar Ghosh, Olivier Prache and Jeffrey P. Lucas (each an “Executive”). The Agreements provide that if, within the twelve-month period following a Change in Control of the Company (as defined in the Change in Control Agreements), the Executive suffers a Terminating Event (as defined below and in the Change in Control Agreements), he will be entitled to receive a lump sum cash payment in an amount equal to the Executive’s annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the Terminating Event (or the Executive’s annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control, if higher), payable in a lump sum on the termination date, provided that the Executive executes and does not revoke a separation agreement and release in favor of us. In addition, if the Executive was participating in our group health plan immediately prior to termination and elects COBRA health continuation, then we will pay the Executive a monthly cash payment for 12 months or the Executive’s COBRA health continuation period, whichever ends earlier, in an amount equal to the monthly employer contribution that we would have made to provide health insurance to the Executive if he had remained employed by us.

“Our agreements with these tier-one consumer electronics companies, each following rigorous and extensive diligence on our direct patterning technology, are outstanding endorsements of eMagin’s direct patterning technology. These are major steps toward the commercialization of our technology and further evidence of our belief that our direct patterned display technology will enable the next generation of AR/VR for the consumer the market. Momentum is building as we continue to have discussions with other top tier consumer electronics companies and pursue additional agreements. At the same time, the agreements we have signed to date are fueling our ongoing discussions with prospective mass production partners to scale production for our technology to meet commercial demand.

we need to hear more about this...Original Design Manufacturing (ODM) partner efforts

eMagin Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results



Business and Product Highlights as of November 8, 2017
  • Furthered development of our Original Design Manufacturing (ODM) partner efforts to enable multiple partners to leverage a common microdisplay design for the consumer segment.
  • Awarded a follow-on contract worth over $3.7 million for the Army’s Enhanced Night Vision Goggle III (ENVGIII) and Family of Weapons Sight-Individual (FWS-I) programs with delivery expected over twelve months.
  • Received a multi-year $1.7 million order from a European military prime contractor to provide displays for a see-through, augmented reality HMD to support airborne and ground missions requirements.
  • Received a $1.5 million order to support the Light Weight Thermal Sight (LWTS) program with deliveries expected to begin in December 2017 and continuing through 2018
  • Received a $660,000 order for a new foreign military thermal weapons sight with deliveries commencing in the fourth quarter and expected to be completed by the third quarter 2018.
  • Received funding for the design and development of support hardware that will be integral to new system designs utilizing eMagin’s 2K x 2K microdisplays with the hardware anticipated to be available to defense and commercial integrators in mid-2018.
  • Completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) in October 2017 with a major aviation prime contractor for an OLED upgrade to a fixed wing production helmet that will eliminate the reported “green glow” problem.
  • Continued to support a major US Army helicopter helmet upgrade program to retrofit high brightness microdisplays into the current fielded helmet. The CDR was completed in August with additional OLED display, taper, and lens assemblies to be delivered for integration and testing in December 2017.
  • Received a production order from a foreign aviation prime contractor to supply high brightness microdisplays to upgrade an existing fixed wing helmet. It is expected that this will be a multi-year program with the initial order delivering displays through fourth quarter 2018.
  • Delivered high brightness 2K x 2K microdisplays to another major foreign contractor for use in a prototype aviation helmet.

Third Quarter Results
Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $4.3 million, flat with the third quarter of 2016.
Product revenues totaled $4.0 million versus $3.5 million in the third quarter last year. The year-on-year increase in product revenue was due to an increase in display revenues from the gradual ramp up of new U.S. military programs and increased demand by international customers, offset by the impact of production issues in the quarter that have since been resolved. Contract revenues totaled $266 thousand in the third quarter compared to $769 thousand in the same quarter of last year due to the greater volume of work performed in the prior year quarter on military contracts, including the Mantech program.
Overall gross margin for the third quarter was 7% on gross profit of $278 thousand compared to a gross margin of 30% on gross profit of $1.3 million in the prior year period, primarily due to lower volumes and higher unit costs associated with the production issues in the quarter.
Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017, including R&D expenses, decreased to $3.2 million, from $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2016.
Third quarter R&D expenses decreased 24% over the prior year quarter due to the reduction in R&D spending on the night vision consumer products offset in part by the work performed on the Company’s direct patterning technology. SG&A expenses were essentially flat with the prior year third quarter at $2.0 million.
Operating loss for the third quarter was $3.0 million versus an operating loss of $2.4 million in the third quarter of last year. Net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $3.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2016.


As of September 30, 2017, the Company had cash of $2.0 million, working capital of $10.6 million, and borrowing availability under the ABL facility of $3.7 million.

One of the more entertaining answers from Kopin's Conference Call. Missing the essence with the transcription, inject laughter, sarcasm, "maybe we should start having a new approach talk about patents, yeah." Strange performance like his talk at AWE

John Fan
I am glad we have pattern because we are the earliest guys allocating it and we have our original pattern now, yes, year-over-year. I am impressed that you study all our patterns. Maybe we should announce more of them, we have lot of new patterns which are very fundamental but as we know we are never happy with this patterns, maybe we should start having a new approach talk about patterns, yeah.

Good call, especially on the value of those patents, Dr. Fan got a big kick out of them...

Even as we continue to further enhance our Lightning OLED performance, we have made significant progress in establishing production readiness for our OLED microdisplays and we expect to have production in the first quarter of 2018. At the same time, our joint venture with BOE and Olightek is on schedule, and we expect to break ground shortly on the world’s largest OLED on Si factory, located in Kunming, China.

I"ll predict EMAN will make an announcement about the F-35 win at next weeks CC.

The Dawn Blitz 2017 exercise was completed on Oct 30 where the new OLED configuration was tested & qualified for night carrier landings - which the KOPN LCD was unable to do .

EMAN had the PR ready to go & got the word that it was a success & a contract was imminent - then the PR on Oct 31 1 week ahead of KOPN CC with the ominous statement :

" Just as we established our leadership in the demanding military market by leapfrogging LCD microdisplay technology with our superior OLED micro display technology"

Someone already knows and is messing with the share price to accumulate ahead of EMAN's CC next thursday or before word leaks .

Currently all channels are mum on the results from last week .

This site has weekly F-35 updates that come on Thursdays of Fridays from the previous week .

https://www.f35.com/resources/general-manager-weekly-update

The F-35 program needed to move foreword through the SDD phase - System Development & Demonstration & close out Block 3F .

2 F-35's were delivered to Japan on 10/30 & 3 to Norway on 11/3 . I don't believe they would send them with out the new OLED HMD .

This program was severely delayed and was vigorously pushed foreword due to the NK treat .

Thank you Mantech!

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.--()--eMagin Corporation (NYSE American:EMAN), a leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced the signing of a development and licensing agreement with a tier-one consumer electronics company permitting it to use eMagin technology. The program is expected to generate licensing revenue if the company commercializes eMagin's technology.
“It is further validation of the capabilities of our direct patterning technology for high-brightness, high density microdisplays. Having another tier-one consumer electronics company complete rigorous diligence on our direct patterning technology and sign this agreement with us is a strong endorsement of our microdisplay technology.”
“This agreement is a major step towards the commercialization of our proprietary microdisplay technology,” said Andrew Sculley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “It is further validation of the capabilities of our direct patterning technology for high-brightness, high density microdisplays. Having another tier-one consumer electronics company complete rigorous diligence on our direct patterning technology and sign this agreement with us is a strong endorsement of our microdisplay technology.

The TNVC NVG Adapter for GoPro HERO cameras allows you to capture the highest quality night vision video from the operator’s perspective. GoPro is the industry leader in extreme-use, professional video and photo camera systems. As the go-anywhere / do-anything digital camera, GoPro is in use by professional athletes, sportsmen, drivers, law enforcement, military, and just about anybody with a social media account. While these tiny cameras have long been a staple in the tactical shooting community for recording matches, training, and real-world operations, night vision compatibility has remained elusive… Until now. Enter the Tactical Night Vision Company NVG Adapter for GoPro Hero Cameras.
The NVG Adapter will attach any HERO model to a night vision goggle with a PVS-14 Eyepiece Assembly. The PVS-14 Eyepiece assembly is the most commonly-used eyepiece in professional night vision and thermal equipment; insuring maximum versatility. A translucent Wilcox Industries amber beam-splitter attaches to the rear of the goggle, bouncing the night vision image 90° into a perpendicular-mounted GoPro HERO camera. The camera mounts snugly against the goggle to minimize profile, via a clamp arm that attaches around the NVG Eyepiece Locking Ring. The user sees through the beam-splitter eyepiece normally while the first person POV is recording.  A note about attaching to a PVS-14 NVG: The NVG Adapter for GoPro HERO Cameras will only fit single battery PVS-14 models.  It will not fit dual battery models.

Yeah, the weatherproof criticism is valid, however, straighttalk neglected to mention the cost of the GEN III, the weight, the need for a helmet, ungainly, take care not to remove lens cap in a high brightness situation, reticle burn, does not record, does not flip up w/o adapter, batteries, narrower field of view, military look and feel, no ballistic eye protection, it is not challenging switching on the IR Illuminator,

and first youtube post pointing folks towards TNVC? I'm guessing he bought the Torch for comparison's sake and perhaps an ulterior motive. Ya think? I bought one at $999.00 as well and felt I was getting a good deal. And good grief Mertens you want everything to be free.

I bought one earlier this year here in the US for $999. Strange that they would increase the price to $1699?? The unit is very nicely built although I wish it was weather proof (like my Gen 3) since I'm outdoors a lot. You also need to do a review in complete darkness. You will definitely need to use the built in IR illuminator in the dark and if you're out in a field, you'll need a more powerful IR flashlight device to see off in the distance. At $999, this was a deal, but at $1699, you should definitely take a look at Gen 3 night vision devices as well.
