Abstract
ABSTRACT: Triton Systems has demonstrated a variable light transmission technology that will be optimized in the proposed Phase II for use in a military visor application. There is an ongoing need to substitute two separate visors that provide clear and dark transmission with a single lens capable of fast transition, wide light transmission contrast range, fail clear operation and other specific platform requirements. Our team, which includes current contractors for visors and displays for the military, will fabricate prototype visor devices to demonstrate critical aspects of the fundamental performance capabilities that will eventually lead to use in specific aircraft pilot helmet systems. BENEFIT: The variable light transmission technology provides a pilot with the capability to make the visor opaqueable at will, thereby providing optimum contrast for maximum visual performance. This program will demonstrate the technical capability of the technology to meet specific requirements and demonstrate the manufacturability of our process that would lead to cost effective commercial products. Many dual use applications will be developed with our teaming partners including head-up-display (HUD) applications, general display applications and windows.
