  10. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    Several birds and insects use sky features such as sun, moon or star positions, sky polarization and even forest canopy structures to navigate and maintain heading in day or night conditions. To better understand this ability in insects, a sky projector is needed to allow researchers to project realistic sky images to the insect so that insect response can be studied. Polaris proposes to partner ...
