BAE Systems to Deliver Head Mounted Displays to U.S. Army

MANCHESTER, New Hamp­shire – BAE Sys­tems has received a $21.7 mil­lion indef­i­nite delivery/indefinite quan­ti­ty order for Head Mount­ed Dis­plays from the U.S. Army Pro­gram Exec­u­tive Office Sol­dier.

The Head Mount­ed Dis­play, also known by its com­pa­ny prod­uct name Remote Eye­piece Dis­play Imager, or RED-I®, is com­pat­i­ble with mil­i­tary night sen­sors such as ther­mal weapon sights, and can sup­port a vari­ety of mis­sion require­ments by pro­vid­ing the user with an eas­i­ly con­fig­urable pri­vate view­ing dis­play that can mount to eye­glass frames or fit under visors.

“The unique capa­bil­i­ties of our Head Mount­ed Dis­play, cou­pled with a ther­mal imager, sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhance the warfighter’s oper­a­tional effec­tive­ness,” said Vadim Plotsker, pres­i­dent of BAE Sys­tems OASYS. “Our Head Mount­ed Dis­play is one of the small­est and most ver­sa­tile remote dis­play imagers avail­able on the mar­ket today. It is light­weight, low-pow­er, and has a patent­ed design that allows simul­ta­ne­ous see-through view­ing with a for­giv­ing eye-box.”

More than 3,000 RED-I devices have been field­ed to date. BAE Sys­tems has the largest quan­ti­ty con­tract ever award­ed by the U.S. Army for this type of device, which sup­ports a vari­ety of mis­sions, night vision sen­sors, and weapon sys­tems.

BAE Sys­tems OASYS employs about 80 peo­ple in Man­ches­ter, New Hamp­shire. The elec­tro-opti­cal com­pa­ny has exper­tise in ther­mal imag­ing tech­nol­o­gy, opti­cal assem­bly design and man­u­fac­ture, pre­ci­sion opti­cal com­po­nents, and rapid prod­uct devel­op­ment.
