Paper Abstract

A characterization was performed on a monochrome, low-information content polymeric light emitting diode (PLED) display to determine the effects of ruggedization for military display applications. A summary of the environmental, mechanical, and optical characterization results show that a unique direct bonding method and night vision imaging system (NVIS) filter material can be used to ruggedize commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) PLED displays to operate in demanding military environments. Significant enhancements to a COTS PLED device are discussed in terms of impact resistance, enhanced sunlight readability, and compatibility with night vision operations.
