ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of smart glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced it has received new additional orders from two aerospace and defense firms to further develop and deliver  waveguide-based display solutions in 2024.

The first, a new order from a global Tier-1 aerospace and defense firm, involves the development of new head mounted display (HMD) technology for military aircraft. The customized HMD waveguide and HD display engine development program with this customer has continued to expand and move toward eventual production. Vuzix has previously completed multiple stages of product development and refinement with this partner.   

Vuzix has also received a new follow-on order for further development of a lightweight heads-up display (HUD) replacement for technologies previously supplied by a China-based company. This order was received from a US-based company that is a leader in technologically advanced and intelligent solutions for the global aerospace and defense industry. This customer is the incumbent supplier for several existing programs and has turned to Vuzix as a US-based manufacturer of waveguide and display technologies.

"We continue to design and further develop next generation waveguide-based display solutions for these large aerospace and defense players as they pursue multiple production opportunities," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "As the only US-based manufacturer of waveguides, we look forward to announcing further developments with the many defense firms with which we are already engaged."
