Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award (old news but new article)


https://www.army.mil/article/216095/army_promotes_modernization_priorities_at_defense_manufacturing_conference
David Fellowes and Russell Draper, U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command Communications-Electronics Center Night Vision and Electronics Sensors Directorate, received a Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award, "Enhancing Military Capability," for their work on Organic Light Emitting Diode Microdisplays. Their project matured manufacturing processes required to produce advanced technology for head-worn displays that provide situational awareness for Soldiers.

The next step, he said, was to develop an extremely high resolution, 2048-by-2048-pixel display in full color. That advancement came to fruition recently, and some of them were on display.

AUGMENTED REALITY

The next phase of development had to do with taking the improved micro-display and pairing it with augmented reality, using the Nett Warrior system.

Sgt. 1st Class Justin Nelson, in charge of Soldier testing at CERDEC, was suited up in the Nett Warrior System, with a helmet-mounted micro-display attached. The media could see what he was seeing in his micro-display on a large TV screen.

Previously, Soldiers had a small radio attached to their chest, he said. Whenever they needed to get location coordinates or other data they had to look down and lost situational awareness to their front. Nelson compared it to a person walking across a busy street looking down at a cellphone. "Not good."
