SUNNYVALE, CA — Oct. 14, 2014: DigiLens completed another significant milestone in its evolution as a world leading waveguide optics company with the delivery of the world’s first holographic waveguide head-up display (HUD) into commercial aviation.
The HGS-3500 HUD was developed for Rockwell Collins as the enabling component of their integrated synthetic vision system for the Embraer Legacy 450 & 500 series jets.
In combining the Rockwell electronic synthetic vision system with the DigiLens’ holographic optical waveguide HUD, the two companies have developed a unique wide field of view augmented reality solution that transforms weight, size, power and cost, opening a gateway to the deployment of synthetic vision systems on all aircraft, dramatically improving future passenger safety.
Following manufacturing certification, Rockwell Collins has also placed a substantial purchase order with DigiLens for supply of HGS-3500 HUDs. Both companies hope the successful deployment will also lead to further avionics platform wins.
“We are seeing expanding market demand for our waveguide optics in HUD,” said DigiLens CEO Jonathan Waldern. “This capability is highly valued by the avionics industry and the optical technology unmatched.”
