Paper Abstract

OLED technology has captured the attention of commercial product developers, but is this technology suitable for military applications? The implementation of OLED technology into three military displays is described. The design, assembly and testing of these displays is discussed with the goal of addressing the question of suitability of OLED technology for military use. The results of optical and environmental testing are presented. The strengths and shortcomings of OLED technology are discussed. A conclusion on the benefit of OLED technology for military use is provided along with recommended goals for future OLED developments.
