Paper Abstract

The all solid state nature of thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) displays provides the technology with the resistance to the extreme environmental stresses which are required of displays to meet the military's requirements. Because of their rugged nature over 30,000 TFEL displays are in use in military applications in aircraft cockpits, army vehicles, naval ships, and man portable applications. Recent advances in the technology have enabled TFEL displays to meet requirements for multicolor, gray scale and high resolution wearable displays. This talk will give a general overview of the technology capabilities and the many military applications for TFEL displays.
