Abstract
Microvision, Inc. will design, fabricate, integrate, and test a prototype full-color display platform using its MEMS-based scanned beam display technology to replace high voltage and high power consumption CRTs. The Phase II effort leverages the Phase I research that analyzed three candidate architectures to convert non-visible light to visible light into a platform that best matches military requirements and commercialization potential. During the initial stage of the Phase II effort, the design, selection, and performance testing of several photoluminescent screen materials will be conducted. Following the photoluminescent screen material selection, Microvision will then fabricate, integrate, and test the MEMS-based display subsystems with commercially available optics, electronics, and control modules to produce a direct view, color CRT-replacement bench top display demonstrator. This low-voltage and small volume bench top display demonstrator shall be used to prove the scalability of the MEMS-based architecture and quantify its image quality and technical performance characteristics. Simultaneously, Microvision will also build and test a color head-mounted, high-resolution display by using an alternative photoluminescent screen material technique. Additional deliverables include a product development roadmap leading to a Phase III effort and dual use commercialization plan for DoD and commercial products.
