WESTBOROUGH, Mass. – Kopin Corporation, a leading provider of application-specific optical solutions and high performance micro-displays for defense, enterprise, consumer and medical products, today announced it has received an approximately $6 million follow-on order for one of its thermal weapon sight eyepiece subassemblies.
“This fourth follow-on order we have received for this product is a testament to Kopin’s responsiveness and reliability in delivering weapon sights and targeting products in this fast-changing global environment”
The eyepiece subassembly is a critical component provided to a Department of Defense prime contractor that integrates the eyepiece into a sophisticated video “see through” AR optical module using Kopin’s proprietary high-brightness microdisplay and custom-designed Pancake® optics.
This additional increase in demand potentially triples our thermal weapon sight production volumes in fiscal year 2024, as compared to 2023.
