Vuzix Announces Waveguide HMD Partnership

Vuzix, a supplier of smart glasses, AR technology and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, has signed an agreement with a new global tier-1 aerospace firm to build a customised commercial avionics waveguide-based head mounted display system.

Under the terms of this agreement, Vuzix and its new customer have embarked on a multi-stage development programme. The first stage is expected to be completed this autumn, with costs of approximately $250,000. The company expects to receive follow-on orders from this customer to finalise the product’s development and hard tooling, to deliver commercial volumes as early as the second of half of 2019.
