A Liquid-Crystal on Silicon Infrared Scene Projector
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
This proposal outlines the research and development of a novel infrared scene projection system based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology. This technology combines the light modulating capabilities of liquid crystal with the compact, active electronics of VLSI circuitry. The result is a mass-producible, inexpensive, compact, low-power, high frame rate device. This proposal addresses the limitations of current visible LCoS-SLM technology in meeting the needs of an IR scene projector, and proposes an approach for the development of a multi-purpose VLSI backplane that is suitable for use in both the visible and IR. When combined with IR appropriate materials, the result is an inexpensive device that is reconfigurable.
