- Continued Progress on Key Initiatives -
“We are seeing growing demand for our products, particularly with U.S.
military and aviation programs and with new and existing international
“We continue to work towards supplementing our display sales by providing our customers a more complete solution. We have developed a prism optic which we shipped during the quarter to a military customer for evaluation. We also developed a fiber optic taper that will enable our displays to be incorporated into products which are being retrofitted or otherwise designed for a different sized microdisplay. In addition, a new assembly process was developed and validated that allows additional optical elements to be attached to our microdisplays, providing for a broader range of applications by the customer with less up-front engineering design work.
“I am pleased with the progress we are making with our largest (4K x 4K) full color display which we are developing in collaboration with our Tier 1 consumer electronics customer to incorporate into a consumer headset. We are also working with a new medical device manufacturer on development of next generation diagnostic equipment. We believe the high resolution, high contrast, and brightness of our OLED displays have strong appeal across both defense and commercial industries, and we continue to pursue new opportunities.
“On the military side, we are continuing to win new programs and support
existing ones. Many of these are long duration programs which we support
for their entire lifetime. While we provide displays to the newer U.S.
Army Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG) III and ENVG-B programs, we
recently received a
“Turning to our operations, we have resolved our production issues from the fourth quarter with special focus on addressing potential single point failures. As well, we are making progress on our multi-year yield improvement initiatives. We have increased our production resources, made some key technical hires, and installed and qualified new, advanced production equipment. These efforts should give us greater production reliability and flexibility while increasing production capacity, lowering unit costs and providing greater operating efficiencies.
“Finally, we are working to improve the efficiency and lifetime of our direct patterned (dPdTM) displays. We have made architectural improvements and incorporated superior performing OLED materials. We are also upgrading our existing dPd production equipment and expect it to be completed and ready for sampling in the third quarter. The redesigned equipment will have significant throughput improvement and will better demonstrate the technology’s capability for mass production,” concluded Mr. Sculley.
Business and Product Highlights
- We successfully processed the initial 4K x 4K wafers that we designed for a Tier 1 consumer electronics partner which we received in December. This enabled us to validate the base functionality of the 4K x 4K display and confirmed our ability to develop a large area silicon microdisplay with no visible non-uniformities. These high brightness displays will be used to develop a headset with a wide field of view and no screen door effect. Validation at the individual display level is expected to be completed during the second quarter with full color prototype development using our dPd technology completed in the third quarter.
We delivered displays for the F-35 Lightning II helmet throughout the
first quarter while continuing to work closely with the
Collins Aerospaceteam to further improve the display in preparation for Low Rate Initial Production.
- We increased our presence in the medical device market with an order from a new customer, an innovative developer and manufacturer of diagnostic and ophthalmic surgical equipment, for the development of their next generation diagnostic equipment.
In April, we received a follow-on order of
$239,000in support of the Javelin Missile program Command Launch Unit. This is in addition to $560,000of orders that we received during 2018.
We continue to support full rate production for the US ARMY ENVG III
program. Additionally, we are working with both prime contractors on
pre-production units for the ENVG Binocular program. This program is
anticipated to commence production in late 2019/early 2020 with an
overall acquisition objective by the
U.S. Armyof approximately 190,000 systems.
In April, we received a
$627,000order for the ENVG II program which the Company has been supporting since 2013, evidencing the ongoing revenue opportunities from mature programs.
In the first quarter of 2019, we received
$150,000from the US Armyfor OLED display production and yield improvement projects in addition to the $830,000we received in 2018. An additional $900 thousandof projects are under consideration with this successful program, of which $120 thousandhas already been confirmed for 2019.
- Our high brightness microdisplay that we delivered to a major defense contractor last year has been selected for a next generation U.S. rotary wing helmet program with procurement expected beginning in 2020.
