How many dinky companies can alter the world's geo-political equation and balance of power? Javelin, ENVG III, F-35, IDVS..Javelin: The Tank-Killer Missile Russia Hates Most
The Javelin’s Command Launch Unit—CLU—has a sophisticated infrared sensor with multiple viewing modes, including 4x optical zoom, a 4x green-lit thermal view, and a 12x narrow-vision zoom activated for targeting. The seeker in the missile even provides a fourth 9x thermal viewing mode. The CLU can therefore serve as a handy scanning device for the infantry. The thermal viewers on the Javelin needs to be cooled off to function well, which theoretically takes 30 seconds, but might take a bit longer if you’re in Baghdad and it’s a breezy 120 degrees at noon. The system also incorporates multiple safeguards to avert or abort accidental launch.

All the Officers Signed One of Those Golden Parachute Agreements But Andrew Sculley and Doug Hughes? Interesting Lurk, eMagin CEO is a Linkedin Connect with LG Display USA Human Resources...
Sorry, the Vuzix "Holiday Letter" is as tiresome as as all those things tend to be...(or maybe I'm just jealous that they communicate with their shareholders occasionally...)

Ah winter's here, time to come out of hibernation and look forward to the new year. Have a new awesome product we'll be launching in the new year. But not in time for CES. More to come #AugmentedReality #outdoors #cameras— Dan Cui (@dcuinh) December 21, 2017

If "Kingsman III" Has a "Q" This Guy Should Play the Part (but per usual the contact lens things is a non-starter, even Innovega is now veering to glasses)
The first step of AR will be headsets. Second step: goggles. Third step: everyday glasses/contacts.— Erik Finman (@erikfinman) December 20, 2017
The real fun begins when it can be interfaced directly with the user's brain. Sounds scary, but that's where we're heading.

Towards the ultimate AR/MR experience: optical hardware challenges (interesting from around 55:00 on, when over Bernard cryptically adds "Thanks for not spilling the beans" and if you make it thru it pay particular attention to Hua Hong's discussion of brightness and foveated rendering)
Today we did our first demonstration of the @OsterhoutGroup R9 smartglasses running the Android web engine from @firefox for 2D and 3D web content!

I think the contest expired. Mr. Garbe posted this last February. I found it interesting in light of the fact he called it an "AR/VR thing". The Z800 could never be mistaken for an "AR thing", especially to somebody as smart & connected as JG. Someone asked if it was a prototype that utilized an eMagin 2kX2k display. He gave that reply a "Like". Mr. Garbe now works for Magic Leap. Circumstantially interesting but highly speculative on my part. I see "we got our wish" on the IDVS thing. Thanks for the Display Summit report. IDVS has been in PEO's Portfolio for over a year but it's well known you are from Darkest Missouri when it comes to anything positive about eMagin.
It is the optical part of an eMagin Z800 3DVisor circa 2005 (but I think they make it in several variations for a number of years).— Karl Guttag (@karlg_d) December 10, 2017

Got to try out the @OsterhoutGroup R9s again, with final tooling. I've tried them on many times before but it's been a few months and they've gotten lighter, sleeker and still have the best display for AR that I've seen. #SnapdragonSummit pic.twitter.com/LHLbxNq979— Anshel Sag (@anshelsag) December 7, 2017

eMagin Display are FR capable, anybody know if the Kopin's Lighning is also? Want to look into that DZ?
Last Feb but somewhat interesting, need one of those police whiteboards, suspects crossed out, circled, eventually winnowing down THE person of interest...

It appears eMagin can steal a march on Microoled whose WUXGA displays are shipping as Developer Kits in 2018. So THAT's the Euro Alliance. eMagin boss with DPD, Remember they won the bet with Fraunhofer?
