Looks to me to be an excellent validation of EMAN tech .
An AR application that will work in full sunlight and a non military use .
A clear turning point IMO .
[Avionics Today 07-06-2015] Elbit Systems and regional turboprop aircraft manufacturer ATR announced the signature of an agreement for integrating ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) with the SKYLENS wearable display onboard the new ATR-600 series. The system can also be offered as a retrofit to other ATR ‘-600’ aircraft already in service. Enhancing flight safety, the new system will also contribute to the operational availability of turboprop aircraft, often required to operate from airfields lacking sophisticated infrastructure.
According to the agreement between the two companies, Clearvision EFVS will be introduced as an option for both ATR 42-600 and 72-600 models. ATR will be the launch customer for SKYLENS, which replaces the traditional Head Up Display (HUD) in this configuration. Certification is expected by 2017.
"The new SKYLENS system will further enhance the airlines’ operations, providing more operational flexibility and even higher standards of safety and reliability," said Patrick de Castelbajac, CEO of ATR.
On second thought I may be reading " display" as micro display while the author may be intending to mean "display" in a broad sense such as display device .
From an article Dan Cui tweeted - posted on Ace's blog :
"Its display — at least, the display we last saw — has been far surpassed by other vendors, who have done a good job of planting their own flags in the market."
I think this may have been our multiple ID Basher :
Oh it's personal troll .
You'll be back to bashing as soon as your done with your swing trade .
I hope you lose you #$%$ .
Bash a company & you don't even know the basics about it ?
Yes I have .
They can't very well have a legitimate VR Research Report & just list their clients now can they ?
Nanotech Security: NTS-TSXV, NTSFF-OTCQX
Spectra7 Microsystems: SEV-TSXV
EXO U: EXO-TSXV
Tinkerine Studios: TTD-TSXV
Are all the others Sophic clients as well , Sony, Microsoft ,Oculus ..... ?
If not, did they have to "hire" them ?

E3 Increases our Confidence that 2016 Will Be a Breakout Year for VR
An HMD We Believe Investors Should Keep Their Eyes On
Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) is a supplier of smart, VR, and AR eyewear. The Company showcased its iWear Video Headphones at E3. iWear is a pair of high-end video headphones, providing users with a mobile wearable video display and gaming solution featuring dual high-definition displays. It supports HDMI inputs, so users can hook up to their existing 3D Blu-ray player, tablet, console system, PC, and even mobile phones. iWear also includes an integrated tracker that takes the system to the next level of immersion by tracking head orientation and movement for “see where you look” head tracking.
Vuzix representatives gave us a demo of iWear, streaming video from a smartphone. The experience was excellent; it was like having your own movie theater screen a few inches from your eyes. The headset was comfortable, the audio crisp, and the video sharp. We weren’t aware of our surroundings, making this perhaps the best noise (both audio and video) cancelling device in existence.
Garce , I would not get too ahead of this . Certification is expected some time in 2016 . That could be January or it could be December .
I doubt product ramp up will occur until after certification followed by Skylens sales . Do you think Elbit is going to get PO's from their customers before Skylens is certified ?
I would expect the Airlines to do pilot programs first - after certification . I don't see Airlines piloting an uncertified product due to liability issues although I don't know this for certain .
I will look to increased guidance as an indication that EMAN sales have increased to Elbit or an announcement as opposed to speculation .
Snails pace is the way thing work with EMAN .
Unless guidance changes , I'm not counting on EMAN shipping any significant quantities of displays for SkyLens in 2015 .
Given EMAN's history , I'm keeping my expectations on the low side .
Phil has tied in a pair of Vuzix M100 smartglasses to provide that vital audio and video link between the chair user and medics for emergency situations.
When you consider the bulk of puppies income comes from her welfare check , 41 shares is alot !
2016 - they are in the process of certification :
"After Skylens HUD's planned certification in 2016, Elbit Systems may well be on its way to becoming the future leader of the wearable HUD market in commercial aviation, which will allow it to extend its brand awareness in the air transport market beyond just the business jet sector."
I'll guess that someone gave them till end of 2Q , June 30th, to show some tangible results or they were bailing . Not everyone has unlimited patience .
