Abstract
To address the NASA need for lightweight, space suit-mounted displays, Luminit proposes a novel Holographic Waveguided See-Through Display. Our proposed Holographic Waveguided See-Through Display (HoWSD) will integrate highly selective waveguiding Bragg holograms into a helmet-mounted display (HMD) that will provide easy-to-access clearly visible information to astronauts during extravehicular activity (EVA). The proposed HoWSD incorporates a unique design and Luminit novel Holographic Optical Elements into a functional HMD, which enables us to meet NASA goals for a functional, unobtrusive display device that can be incorporated into NASA EVA helmets. HoWSD offers a compact, low-profile display with high brightness and contrast, which is fully see-through and high resolution. In Phase I Luminit demonstrated the feasibility of a see-through helmet-mounted display which prepared us for Phase II. In Phase II, Luminit plans to develop a fully-functional rugged prototype HoWSD that can operate under various illumination levels and demonstrate its functionality. The demonstrated results will offer NASA the capability of incorporating a non-obtrusive, rugged, wide field-of-view display into a space suit helmet designed for EVAs.
