Abstract:

The pico-projector, based on LED and laser diode"light engines", is considered a"disruptive technology"and a"game-changer"in the electro-optical marketplace. Auto-alignment systems are advancing rapidly and have the potential to make the pico-projector array feasible from an image quality and daily-readiness standpoint. With proper design and integration, this new technology will be uniquely beneficial to real-time applications and particularly for new and upgraded trainers, appended trainers, and even augmented reality systems for maintenance training. For the first time, it will be possible to induce halos and blooming in night vision devices and present essentially unlimited dynamic range of illumination for training real-world night missions, which are the most common and critical operations of the military. Q4 Services proposes to develop a Phase I concept that will provide a true high-fidelity, low-cost, and maintenance-friendly visual display system that is re-configurable across many simulator platforms supporting all modes and critical tasks. It will be ideal as a next generation projector technology for WIDE displays, which are ubiquitous in military and civilian flight trainers (with hundreds in use world-wide). It will be equally effective in increasing the fidelity of DART and CAVE type displays, as well as outdoor video walls.
