Title: Dynamic Site Overlay based on Luminit Substrate-guided Holographic Technology
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W15QKN-12-C-0106
Award Amount: $149,927.00


To address the Army need for a low-cost, size, weight and power optimized, high-resolution, dynamic electronic overlay display system for small arms sights that provides improved performance over current commercially available systems, Luminit, LLC proposes to develop the new high resolution low cost and compact Dynamic Sight Overlay based on Luminit Holographic (DOSH) technology. DOSH will provide an optical system integrated into an individual soldier weapon-mounted direct-view optical scope that satisfies MIL-STD-810 requirements for military systems. It will be fully see-through, have full color SXGA resolution or better with brightness that can be adjusted to day and night illumination--all without imposing significant cost and power increases in the lighting systems. In Phase I, Luminit will develop a detailed design of proposed electronic graphic overlay technology, and conduct benchtop proof-of-concept DOSH demonstrations. Risk and performance will be defined; cost, size, weight, and power consumption will be estimated. Phase II will result in the development, fabrication, and testing of a complete DOSH prototype. The prototype device will be delivered to the Army for demonstration of target identification, hit probability, and lethality.
