Title: Untethered Real Time Low Cost Head Tracking
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W909MY-10-C-0058
Award Amount: $66,076.00


PhaseSpace will modify existing optical tracking and inertial tracking systems to create a low cost, highly accurate, highly reliable, and real-time untethered head tracking system using a combination of vision, active marker LED and inertial tracking methods. The proposed system combines the high performance of our vision based and LED tracking solutions with inertial tracking methods. PhaseSpace is the industry''s leader in LED tracking with over 15 years experience and through a related Navy SBIR developed an Inertial Measurement Unit with multiple accelerometers, Mems Gyros, magnetometers and an onboard microprocessor with 2.4 gigahertz RF wireless communications. Working with the US Air Force we have developed custom 9 megapixel and 30 megapixel video cameras with advanced image tracking technology. We will use this unique expertise to further develop and optimize our current systems to the specifications and unique requirements of this particular SBIR including limited space and multiple users. A head tracking system which allows users to move freely within changing environments will provide the capability to present the correct sensor imagery from the DAS to the user, thus significantly enhancing utilization of DAS information as well as driving remote sensors and systems with head motion.
