We propose to build, test, and characterize a three dimensional monitor for the direct display of three (or higher) dimensional information. Our device is constructed of a three dimensional array of pixels, actually "voxels," which in their quiescent state are transparent. When these elements are excited optically, through a fiber optic pigtail, they flouresce. The sum of many flourescing elements thus compose a three dimensional image. This spatial monitor will be used in many applications to visualize, and interact with, three dimensional images. In particular, Air Force applications will greatly benefit from this novel human/machine interface. For example, the situational awareness of a operator engaged in a three dimensional task will be greatly increased. When coupled with a two dimensional display for horizon views, this three dimensional monitor will be a useful training platform.
