Research Institution
To address the Navy"s need for an innovative volumetric visualization technology using a real-time 3D display within a laptop environment, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance development of a new Holographic Volume Multiplexing 3D (HOLOVOX-3D) volumetric visualization system, which is based on high-speed projection of multi-angle cross-sectional 2D images of a 3D scene onto a novel multiplexed holographic screen, integrating the projected 2D images into a volumetric imagery viewable from multiple concurrent perspectives. The innovative use of free-space volume image generation with optical image fusion allows the system to operate in real time and to extract accurate 3D spatial and geospatial data from the displayed volumetric imagery. In Phase I, POC successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the HOLOVOX-3D through design, fabrication, and demonstration of a functional, full-color, video-rate (60 Hz), and portable laptop-like prototype with a real-time interactive interface for selection and movement of image points. In Phase II, POC plans to design, develop, and demonstrate a real-time full-parallax volumetric 3D visualization prototype system that fuses multiple live 2D image sources to generate 3D images with integrated geospatial data, augmented with computer synthesized images, allowing extraction of accurate geospatial data for targeting and mission planning for Navy evaluations.
