Abstract:

A B technologies proposes to conduct advanced research leading to development of an enhanced Personal Visualization Environment (PVE) that will provide visualization of fused, multi-sensor, multi-spectral, image and non-image data from external sources. Our progress shows that a lightweight, eyeglass from factor having capabilities of full and partial transmissivity or full immersion virtual viewing will be required to meet the requirements. Our proposed research will create a specification for the most realistic and in-depth augmented environments using the most functional, physical visualization device. Upon completion of the Phase I effort we will produce a functional prototype. Ultimately, the offeror will develop a visualization device for warfighters that permits hand-free operation with full situational and spatial awareness. The capability will enhance command and control and improve force protection postures by making vehicle, aircraft and water craft operations safer. The resulting product will provide full modularity of components permitting integration into selected crewmand helmets and soldier and sailor support systems. Commercial applications will provide similar benefits to fire and safety organizations of state and local governments; will enhance future advanced distributed learning techniques employed by commerce and academia; and, will rapidly penetrate media entertainment markets.
