  4. Optical Void Sensing for Deeply Buried Hardened Target Penetrators

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: AF071146

    Aerius Photonics proposes an optical void sensor that will meet the objectives of the Air Force for a survivable, reliable, non-inertial void detector for deeply buried hardened target penetrators. The sensor approach draws low power, is compact and has the potential for precise distance ranging, void counting, void measurements, and pseudo void imaging in cluttered environments. To achieve this ...

  8. Vergence Mismatch Mitigation for See-through Binocular Head-Mounted Displays

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF071024

    The M2DART provides a portable simulator system that can be deployed for a variety of training tasks and at numerous locations around the globe. Although its uncollimated, tiled displays allow for a small footprint, the viewing distance is both close (nominally 36”) and varies significantly as a user moves their head from tile to tile. This difference between HMD focus and vergence and the var ...
