Research Institution
MNB Technologies presents a novel approach to integrating mission-specialized adaptive knowledge fusion front-end systems to their unique hardware accelerated real time synthetic holography visualization engine and projector. The result of this will be a portable distributed system that may be used to integrate disparate information into a cohesive volumetric perspective of the battlespace from sea floor to low earth orbit. Of particular significance is the system’s ability to extract highly accurate target mensuration and mission planning knowledge from real-time data sources using a holographic display with “reach in” human interface. Unlike approaches that demand new information schema to work, the proposed system is intended to uptake information from existing sources and integrate it, on demand, into actionable knowledge presented holographically. The system is highly scalable and may be used with wearable, notebook, and desktop class human interface systems connected to hand-held, tripod-mount, or fixed-mount projectors. Further, the system will find beneficial use in non-defense application areas including: medical imaging, education, air traffic control, drug discovery, homeland security, scientific visualization, and entertainment.
