Abstract
This Phase I SBIR Project will involve performance of a study to evaluate current commercial display technologies, head-mounted and wrist-mounted display configurations, and software that could fulfill the SOF requirements. The study will emphasizeidentification of the best display at the lowest power consumption. Based on the evaluation of current practice, innovative technology ideas will be presented to offer significant added value to and that can be embedded into portable tactical systems thatare safe, reliable and economical. Accordingly, designs will be developed for Phase II for SOF Tactical Information Display (STID) to enhance personal and/or team performance through the use of tactical information assistants. The STID will have a wideappeal within the commercial sector and could be used effectively by a vast portion of military, civilian law enforcement and emergency services, as well as construction firms, the trucking industry, and other industries such as taxi companies. The STIDwould provide a high-resolution video interface for cellular telephones, other Personal Digital Assistants, as well as military, police, and emergency radios. These displays would permit users to view transmitted maps, location data, pictures, messages,and full motion video. It could also interface with portable CD-ROM or DVD drives to display maps, charts, pictures, full motion video, etc. It could have wide civilian applications.
