The US State Air Force Research Laboratory has awarded Universal Display Corporation a $750,000 Small Business Innovation Research Phase II contract to develop “Low-Power, Direct-view Flexible Displays” which are meant to end up as a non-glass, ejection-safe, amenable OLED display archetype for use by pilots in tactical cockpits settings. Developed alongside partners such as L-3 Communications display system and LG Display, it is hoped that this new and upcoming flexible phosphorescent OLED will be energy proficient despite boasting full video rate and wireless communication aptitude. It is also meant to offer pilots a secondary display for printed maps and checklists, being flexible enough to wrap around cylinders for easy storage during flight.
