Displays for Optics

Digital information for better situational awareness

Besides the dynamic reticle, transparent displays can also bring other digital information in the line of sight, right where it’s most useful. The display is placed in between the optics lens systems showing mission-critical information, such as heading, speed, attitude, location and distance to the target. The Lumineq technology enables rich segmented display content and high-resolution micro matrixes with details up to 10 micrometers. This makes it possible for us to also create transparent microdisplays that can be used on magnifying optics. With night vision goggles (NVG) you lose depth perception because you are looking through an electronic image. When you have to work with a reduced field of vision like this, getting critical information in the line of sight can compensate for those limitations.

Reduced weight and lower power consumption

Transparent displays can cut down device weight by transforming some of the mechanics to digital solutions thus simplifying the mechanical construction. This can drastically reduce weight for instance in high power rifle scopes by up to 1 kg. Another benefit is the low power consumption. Our transparent displays are built with emissive technology, where only the segments that are lit up use power. This means that power consumption is as low as a few milliwatts, depending on the lit area and the brightness. 

Crystal-clear transparency and adjustable brightness

Compared to transparent OLED (TOLED) and other display technologies, the performance of our displays is on a different level with a glass-like transparency of near 90%. And you can always see through the lens system, even if you’re running low on battery or the display is not in use. Nighttime causes no issues either. The brightness is adjustable from a few nits, or candela, to thousands according to different needs. Chrome and other functional layers can be added behind the light-emitting layers for backup, enhanced brightness and blocking light if needed.

Ultra-reliability for harsh environments

Lumineq displays are inorganic, solid state displays made for tough environments. They endure drastic temperatures, humidity, shock, and vibrations. The operating temperature is from -100°C to 105°C and the temperature doesn’t affect the lifetime or response time. The displays need neither heater nor cooler.

Interested in a start-kit?

We are now developing a start-kit for scope manufacturers to easily integrate our display to their scope for evaluation and prototyping purposes. The kit will be available in the end of 2019. Contact us if you are interested.
