Research 3-D Screen Technology Utilizing Autostereographics and the impacts on Tactical Operartors in the Command and Control Center.
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In recent years computer displays have underwent a revolution of sorts from the old Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) based displays to more modern LCD and Plasma based flat panel technologies. Additionally, several manufacturers are now offering displays known as Autostereographic, that are capable of displaying true 3-D images without the requirement for special equipment such as operator eyeware. Use of this technology onboard US Navy submarines for tactical applications and operator training has the potential for enhancing situational understanding, ownship navigation and crew readiness. However, an understanding must be gained related to the potential impacts on operator performance when using these displays as the onboard applications that could best benefit from the technology. The purpose of the research conducted under this STTR will be to gain an understanding of these impacts within a submarine command and control center environment, as well as examine potential submarine command and control applications that potentially could benefit from the use of 3-D technologies.BENEFITS: Software Based Drivers/Translators that modify existing and planned applications to be used with 3-D Displays. Naval and Airspace Navigational Tools that utilize 3-D Technology.
