Abstract
The Navy has long had a need for a wide field of view Head Mounted Display to provide situation awareness. Taking into account eye position, the image at the HMD should be presented with highest resolution at the center and much less but still acceptable resolution on peripheries. Intelligent Optical Systems proposes to develop a Dual Reflection Waveguide Ultra-wide view display that will provide situation awareness, allow 120 degree peripheral view, and provide a maximal resolution direct view without any moving mechanical parts. The novel optical system is based on dual use of waveguide surfaces for peripheral and direct view information. IOS has successfully completed a series of government projects related to the proposed technology. The diverse experience of the technical staff in the areas of stereovision displays, optical waveguides, image processing, and high performance video processing will contribute to the successful completion of this project. In Phase I, we will perform ray tracing for complete optical design and develop prototype software to correct for wide view image presentation in both see-through systems and non-see-through systems. In Phase II, we will fabricate a prototype system with wide view display and higher than human resolution limits in the foveation area.
