The Flexible-display technology will provide an advantage over glass-based displays for Army applications. The US Army is supporting research and development designed to speed commercialization of flexible displays. The use of flexible-display technology in the US Army systems will lead to reduced power, improved reliability, and reduced display volume and weight. Power is addressed by developing flexible displays based on technologies that offer an advantage compared to LCD's or plasma displays. A direct substitution of flat glass displays with flat flexible displays is the first envisioned application to improve system reliability and performance. The potential application applications of the technology include displays conformally laminated to equipment, vehicles, and walls. The US Army recognizes the advantages that flexible displays will provide to both the commercial and military markets.
