eMagin Corporation (Amex: EMAN), a leader in OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies, announced today that it will be awarded a subcontract by ITT Corporation for supply of display beam combiner assemblies (DBCA), including eMagin’s OLED-XL microdisplays. The U.S. Army awarded a contract to ITT’s Night Vision & Imaging business units a contract for the Spiral Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (SENVG). The firm-fixed-price contract has a potential value of $260.7 million. eMagin’s subcontract would have a potential value of $15.2 million.

"This is an important award for eMagin as it proves that the U.S. Army is ready to qualify the low power, high contrast and wide temperature operation advantages of our active matrix OLED technology for the ENVG program," commented Mr. Andrew Sculley, the Company's president and chief executive officer. "We are pleased to be able to help reduce the power requirements for the SENVG with low-power OLED microdisplays."

The SENVG incorporates the 18 mm image intensifier tube, utilizes several qualified ENVG subassemblies, including the DBCA from eMagin and is powered by 3 AA batteries, which reduces the logistics burden and gives the customer an estimated $130 million savings over the product’s life cycle. Through various system enhancements the SENVG has a digital upgrade capability that will allow the goggle to export fused imagery for transmission via battlefield networks.
