Interface between Image Generator and Display

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard E. Pray, President
Award Amount: $69,978.00
Abstract:
Many existing image generator (IG) systems lack the required fidelity for particular tasks because the tradeoff of rendering performance vs. image update rate causes scene load management to limit, or cull, certain objects form the scene. Several methodsare used, including dynamically limiting the… More

Interface between Image Generator and Display

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard E. Pray, President
Award Amount: $749,910.00
Abstract:
Very low cost (and some legacy) image generators (IG) often lack the fidelity to perform in high fidelity, mission critical simulation systems.

Digital Input/Output (I/O) Bus for Simulators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Barry J. Williams, Vice President of Enginee
Award Amount: $374,900.00
Abstract:
Traditional simulator data input / output systems have consisted of a myriad of I/O devices, often using manufacturer unique hardware and software (ASTTM, MSTTM, Adapted Ethernet, etc.), tailored to a solution for each device. On larger simulator platforms, the I/O systems often require large racks… More

Principal Investigator: Richard E. Pray, President
Award Amount: $999,932.00
Abstract:
Complexity of immersive displays continues to grow and so does required setup and calibration. A myriad of measurements and adjustments must be performed to verify compliance of systems and components to specifications. Routine system maintenance sometimes necessitates less involved system… More

Untethered Datalinks for Use in Simulation Environments

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Richard Pray, President
Award Amount: $99,159.00
Abstract:
Accurate simulation of portable visual devices, such as binoculars, hand held sensors and displays, and helmet mounted displays have been greatly limited by the necessity for cabled solutions to support the bandwidth required to provide high resolution video. As such, tethers on such systems have… More

High Speed Wireless 3-D Video Transmission to Support Virtual Dismounted Training

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Richard Pray, President
Award Amount: $69,961.00
Abstract:
The use of real world portable devices such as binoculars, helmet mounted displays, and night vision goggles is expanding, providing today's warfighter with greater amounts of visual information to process in real time. Training the soldier to become proficient with each of these complex systems is… More
