Fan stated in the CC :
Kopin was just selected by one of the two large U.S. prime contractors picked by U.S. Army for FWS-I and is well positioned to wing FWSC too.
So will EMAN be awarded FWS-I by the second prime ?
After hearing the CC & reviewing the transcripts it appears there are 2 Prime contractors for the FWS-I . KOPN appears to have been awarded by one but the second is still up for grabs & may have actually been lost by them - " but we're not the primary of a second one to be honest with you."
Okay. On the FWS projects, you mentioned two primes, how are you situated with - and it sounds like you made progress - tangible progress with one of them how you're situated with the other one?
We continue to work with the other one and then there are other - for little bit more detail, the FWS-C actually has different products. So what we have done with the FWS-I that has two, we've been awarded by one and we’ll work with the second one, but we're not the primary of a second one to be honest with you.
And FWS-C those are different primes and we’re working with them but that yet have not been awarded, that will be later in the year.
Looking at the previous KOPN TWS PR they reveled in providing details & rubbing in their win . Not much detail this go around .
Anyway if we don't get into FWS-I it is likely we will get the ENVG-III portion .
In our military group we have been selected by a major U.S. Military prime contractor to supply eyepiece assemblies for the U.S. Army’s FWS-I program, the next generation of thermal weapon sights.
- Interesting the are supplying 'eyepiece assemblies" . Does that include the display or are they getting those from EMAN ?
Anytime someone leaves it's a little disconcerting however people come and go from companies all the time for a multitude of reasons & we will likely never know the exact circumstances that let to Kohin's departure . Could be her husband got a great promotion & she can quit work . Maybe she got an offer to move back to a town where her family lives . Maybe she wants to get back into the technical part of things and away from sales/marketing .
There is not enough information here to draw any conclusions as to whether to invest or not IMO .

Difference Between Tier 1 & Tier 2 Companies
An original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, refers to a company that makes a final product for the consumer marketplace. For example, Ford and General Motors are OEM companies that manufacture cars, and Apple is a computer OEM.
Tier one companies are direct suppliers to OEMs. The term is especially common in the automobile industry and refers to major suppliers of parts to OEMs. For example, Sensata Technologies is a tier one supplier of exhaust gas sensors to automotive OEMs.
Tier two companies are the key suppliers to tier one suppliers, without supplying a product directly to OEM companies. However, a single company may be a tier one supplier to one company and a tier two supplier to another company, or may be a tier one supplier for one product and a tier two supplier for a different product line.
Teaming with AMD & putting the hurt on NVIDIA would be an added bonus IMO after the way they left us high and dry on Z800 driver support while simultaneously launching their own HMD .
Eat our dust NVIDIA .
Thanks Ace for the find ,
@ 1:05:00 Roy mentions 1 data point , current tech - 2k x 2k , 90 FPS , 10 ms latency
Later states there will be Tiers of VR
@ 1:13:00 talks about 4K in lab - not AMD , 3rd party , not ready for prime time
