Abstract:

Leveraging on our extensive experience on laser projection technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of see-through type of Head Mounted Display (HMD) with wide field of view and foveal vision ability, targeted for integrating with enhanced vision systems for night and daytime dismounted infantry combat operations with a secondary function of providing command and control information and external imagery from weapon sights or other platforms. The proposed HMD is very lightweight, compact, easy to mount on any standard helmets, and is based on commercial components. Furthermore, our designs offer advantageous attributes of high speed, low cost, simple design, and withstand severe environmental conditions. The feasibilities of the proposed laser projection technology have been successfully demonstrated. In this Phase I program, the image processing algorithm will be optimized and a functional prototype of the proposed foveal vision HMD will be developed and demonstrated.
