Kopin Corporation has won $23.2m in follow-on production orders to supply display systems for the US Army's thermal weapon sight bridge (TWS-IIB) programme.

Under the follow-on orders, the company will provide display modules and complete eyepiece assemblies for a broad array of weapons used in mission-critical night operations.

According to the company, Kopin's TWS-IIB display systems are based on the low-power CyberDisplay 640M display and are equipped with controller electronics and lens assemblies.

The displays, which have low-lifecycle costs, will minimise complex compensation algorithms through their consistent performance over the entire military temperature range.

The delivery of display systems is expected to start later this quarter and continue over the next year.
