Microvision tapped for wireless displays

The U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity last month announced that it awarded Microvision Inc. a $3.3 million contract for the initial phase in developing a mobile, wireless personal display system for medical applications.

The contract for the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center supports the Army's vision for a mobile medical system that will enable military surgical personnel and medics to read and transmit medical data via a head-worn display, wearable computer and wireless network.

Honeywell wins satellite deal

The Air Force announced last month that it has selected a team led by Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc. for the service's Satellite Control Network Contract, worth an estimated $1.2 billion for up to 15 years. Honeywell will replace communications technologies that make up the ground network and tracking systems of the Air Force Satellite Control Network.

These ground stations are the communications link between the National Command Authorities — the president and the secretary of Defense or their designees — and U.S. forces worldwide.

The CDC contract is a one-year, $1 million contract with two renewable options.
