Abstract
SA Photonics, in conjunction with our teammates at the University of Arizona, have developed LARS, the low-cost augmented reality system. This system is a see-through HMD used for training and simulation. LARS was designed using an innovative freeform prism combiner which is small, lightweight and has very little obscuration of the outside world. We have partnered with Rockwell Collins Optronics (RCO) as our commercialization partner. With their extensive track record in ruggedized HMDs, RCO is a great partner to ensure the commercialization of LARS.
