Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO BUILD, TEST AND CHARAXTERIZE A NOVEL THREE DIMENSIONAL MONITOR FOR THE DIRECT DISPLAY OF THREE (OR HIGHER) DIMENSIONAL INFORMATION. OUR DEVICE IS CONSTRUCTED OF A THREE DIMENSIONAL ARRAY OF PIXELS, ACTUALLY "VOXELS", WHICH IN THEIR QUIESCENT STATE ARE TRANSPARENT. WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE EXCITED OPTICALLY, THROUGH A FIBER OPTIC PIGTAIL, THEY FLOURESCE. THE SUM OF MANY FLOURESCING ELEMENTS THUS COMPOSE A THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGE. THIS SPATIAL MONITOR WILL BE USED IN MANY APPLICATIONS TO VISUALIZE - AND INTERACT WITH - THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGES. FOR EXAMPLE, THE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS OF AN OPERATOR ENGANGED IN A THREE DIMENSIONAL TASK WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED. AN EXAMPLE PARTICULARLY PERTINENT TO THE MISSION OF THE SDI IS THE RADAR DISPLAY OF MULTIPLE TARGETS IN A LARGE SPATIO-TEMPORAL OPERATIONAL FIELD.
