Abstract
Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology combines the light modulating capability of liquid crystal with compact VLSI backplanes to create reflective micro displays. This proposal addresses the limitations of current LCoS technology in meeting the needs of an IR scene projector, and proposes an approach for the development of a multi-purpose VLSI backplane that is suitable for use in the visible, NIR, MWIR and LWIR. When combined with IR appropriate materials, the result is an cost-effective, high-resolution display device
