Abstract:

THERE IS A NEED FOR A BATTLE MANAGEMENT 3-D DISPLAY SYSTEM TO DISPLAY BATTLE SITUATIONS IN TERMS OF TERRAIN, AIR AND GROUND FORCES FOR RAPID SITUATION ASSESSMENT. AN INNOVATIVE REAL TIME STEREOSCOPIC LARGE AREA 3-D DISPLAY SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM HAS A DISPLAY VOLUME OF 3'X3'X3' AND IS CAPABLE OF MULTI-COLOR OPERATION WITH HIGH BRIGHTNESS. AN INNOVATIVE VARIABLE FOCAL LENGTH FRESNEL LENS IS DRIVEN BY PC COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE TO PRODUCE A LARGE IMAGE VOLUME IN REAL TIME. THE INNOVATIVE APPLICATION OF A PHASE LOCKED BIT SLICE CO-PROCESSOR PRODUCES COLOR ANIMATION IN REAL TIME. THE ADVANTAGES OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH ARE REAL TIME OPERATION, LARGE DISPLAY VOLUME, LOW COST, PC COMPATIBILITY, HIGH SPEED GRAPHICS WITH ANIMATION AND COLOR, SOLID STATE RELIABILITY, AND SIMPLICITY OF CONSTRUCTION. IN PHASE I, SIMULATION STUDIES OF THE VARIABLE FOCUS FRESNEL LENS WILL BE PERFORMED AND PROOF OF CONCEPT DEMONSTRATED. ALSO, A BIT SLICE CO-PROCESSOR FOR SOFTWARE TO DRIVE THE 3-D DISPLAY WILL BE DESIGNED AND ITS PERFORMANCE WILL BE SIMULATED. IN PHASE II, A PROTOTYPE 3-D DISPLAY SYSTEM FOR BATTLE MANAGMENT WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND ITS PERFORMANCE EVALUATED.
