Abstract
ADVANCED AIR FORCE BATTLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS MUST PROCESS AND PRESENT COMPLEX, THREE DIMENSIONAL SITUATIONS TO TACTICAL OFFICERS IN REAL TIME. QUICK AND ACCURATE UNDERSTANDING OF THIS DATA IS VITAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THE MISSION AND THE SAFETY OF FRIENDLY FORCES. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL CONTINUE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONCEPT FOR A HOLOGRAM-LIKE VIDEO DISPLAY WHICH FULFILLS THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BATTLE MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS. THIS AUTOSTEREOSCOPIC VIDEO DISPLAY (AVD) DOES NOT REQUIRE GLASSES OR GOGGLES, AND CAN PROVIDE FULL COLOR. IT IS CRT BASED, AND USES A SYSTEM OF MOVING SCAN LINES AND MOVING SLITS TO ACHIEVE THE HOLOGRAPHIC EFFECT. THE BASIC OPTICAL PRINCIPLE HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED IN AN ENGINEERING MODEL. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL ESTABLISH SPECIFICATIONS BASED ON AIR FORCE REQUIREMENTS AND SET KEY DESIGN PARAMETERS FOR THE PLANNED PHASE II PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING. A PHASE II WORK PLAN WILL ALSO BE DEVELOPED,AND THE PROBABILITY OF MEETING THE ULTIMATE FUNCTIONAL OBJECTIVES WILL BE ASSESSED. THE RESULTS OF THIS EFFORT WILL PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR AN INFORMED DECISION TO PROCEED WITH THE PROGRAM, AND A DETAILED PLAN OF ACTION TO FOLLOW.
