This Phase II effort will involve the effective translation of the SOF Tactical Information Display (STID) architecture developed under Phase I into a set of functional prototypes. The STID will be able to capture screen display data from a standard VGAport and transmit it wirelessly via a low probability of detection (LPD) ultra-wideband (UWB) link to a remote miniature display, which could be wrist-mounted, head-mounted, or handheld. Available miniature high-resolution displays will be evaluated foruse in the STID, the most appropriate of which will be integrated into one of three prototype systems to be built: wrist-mounted, head-mounted, and handheld. The effort will involve the development and implementation of a number of component technologiesthat are essential to an effective low-power STID solution: high-resolution VGA screen capture, virtually lossless real-time image compression, advanced short-range UWB communications, and miniature high-resolution display interfacing. These individualelements will be integrated into a transmitter unit which can capture and send display information from any standard VGA host device to a display receiver unit a short distance away. This will enable high-quality tetherless display capability for a numberof military and commercial applications, including wireless personal area networking (WPAN).
