F-35B/C pilots have begun testing new F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System with eye-popping Organic Light-Emitting Diode displays pic.twitter.com/R5IJPRKEaf— James Drew (@JamesDrewNews) September 18, 2017

Not exactly a ringing endorsement but we'll take it (not much in the way of particular knowledge of the sector but a dense Green Glow surrounds this company and his take makes sense as a cursory understanding)
Kopin, you might have to hand over those Dynasty vases you confiscated from the guy (you know) for this act of Industrial Espionage
Their new Twitter Sitter Has a Screw Loose, eMagin Inside! Thanks Jim (Just repeating crap and not knowing the products)

Six15s Darwin AR Glasses uses eMagin displays, I think all their hmds do as well, the ad looks a little like John Wick III but good gun ballet is hard to do
What if BAE and Elbit and Six15 came out of the wild blue yonder and showed the Silicon Valley types how to do this? Be cool
I wrote this 3 years ago so AS knows now the Army Air Corps became the USAF in 1941, yes, it's understandable as events in eManistan occur at glacial speed...(But the Kopinistas Truth Squad might be even slower to process this or are just in denial..."NO WE ARE NOT IN DENIAL!")
Customer Announcement AS gave us at the end of the Q&A. For the first time in public AS alluded to the JSF F-35 "situation" in reference to the cost of a Helmet in development he mentioned or words to the effect that the display in a $350,000 Helmet is not going to be inexpensive. Actually he was low-balling the cost. The recently cancelled BAE Helmet Program cost per Helmet was Approximately $350k. But Lockheed pressed hard for the Elbit Helmet and won the argument over a cost conscious Pentagon. The Elbit-Rockwell Helmet's cost is in the $500k neighborhood. I heard a rumor elsewhere that a better display is in the offing for the F-35. Sculley mentioned obliquely the program as not a large but one with a High Dollar Display, that fits, because I believe the display will cost north of $30k per. Testing for the F-35 is done at Pax River in Maryland, that fits and coincidentally Paxtuxent Naval Air Station is where the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) is Headquartered. And of course it is they who are footing the bill for the High Brightness Displays's development. I construe that the eMagin folks are looking forward to this not only for the high cost and high margins but it's a pretty damn prestigious placement. Thanks Andrew for the Missing Link. Army Air Corps, Air Force, Navy, so what.

"Due to the rapidly expanding industrial base in virtual and augmented reality, and government advances in training technologies, the Army is moving out to seize an opportunity to augment readiness,” Col. Harold Buhl, Army Research Lab Orlando and Information and Communications Technology program manager, said in an Army release Aug. 8. “With STE, the intent is to leverage commercial advances with military specific technologies to provide commanders adaptive unit-specific training options to achieve readiness more rapidly and sustain readiness longer.”
Navy Lab Tests GunnAR Helmet with Bunker Hill Crew (Come a long way from when training was standing in a rowboat trying to hit a Clay Bird, little dated but trend for AR training for gunners is being embraced by the Navy)
Skylens. F-35, Apache. Lucas said that winning the F-35 Socket would open many doors, BAE is a natural. Incidentally, "Brick" said at Tailhook that there are more and better displays coming after the "Fix" accomplished with an eMagin OLED in the F-35

And always hyperbole, Super-Duper Performance and Extremely ,Incredibly Unbelieveably High Brightness Display,
Jack of All Displays Master of None, Really the Kopin "Let's Think of a Really Clever Name" Department Came Up with Brillian?, Looks Like a Typo, Sounds the Name of a Small Fish

Only Irma Can Stop the New, Improved, Acceptable, Green Glow Free eMagin OLED in the Socket F-35 Helmet! (Green Glow Typically Occurs at Night Making it Difficult to See Certain Objects, Yeah! Like Aircraft Carriers, Thanks Lurker)

Oppenheimer still views Himax as overvalued, keeps $4 price target ( Himax must have heard that Kopin was going to take all there sockets, oh no!, where are they going to take them!)
wait, Uerkwitz follows eMagin, not Kopin...
|ah, now it all makes sense|
Maybe, Kopin and RoadtoVR have some kind of a relationship $$$, can anyone picture eMagin Tweeting about their own stuff? Nah, me either. If they did they would quickly scurry into the closet place of concealment.
Anyone still expecting Apple to announce AR Glasses next week may be disapointed. Here’s why: https://t.co/bUy20aBtkA— Matt Miesnieks (@mattmiesnieks) September 7, 2017

Elbit/Everysight seems to have expectations for Raptor beyond Sports, this VuzixM300 looks pretty cumbersome, doesn't it?
More great uses for smartglasses. "AR glasses are giving airport ground staff superpowers on the runway" https://t.co/rQhiMb4ivL— Everysight (@goEverySight) September 6, 2017

Air Force Academy Falcons Sign-On Now That They Have Faith in the F-35s Helmet's Operational Capability! Pretty Neat
Matt Miesnieks Has Changed His Opinion in the Last Year or So..There’s really not much point to AR products that only work indoors. The whole point of AR is that you can get out & about & wear them as part of your daily life. The optics need to work outdoors on sunny days, and be sharp enough to read text. FoV is less important to AR than VR as the utility use-cases aren’t as immersive as games which depend on peripheral vision. FoV mostly matters to avoid the distration from clipping the content. Today the state of the art that can be manufactured in volume is an OLED microdisplay powering an injection molded waveguide. Single focal plane. We’re a year or two away from nicely functional better displays, and probably another year or so after that before those better displays can be manufactured in volume.
