WARREN, Mich.-U.S. Army vetronics researchers are canvassing industry to see which companies might be able to provide glasses-free 3D (autostereoscopic) display technology, and to determine if the time is right for a formal solicitation to acquire the technology for future armored combat vehicles or unmanned vehicle control stations.
|Army researchers are reaching out to industry for ideas on developing advanced 3D displays for future classes of combat vehicles.|
The Ground Vehicle Robotics branch of the Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) in Warren, Mich., is conducting an industry survey (RFI: W56HZVRFI3D) to assess the potential to obtain an autonomously adjustable autostereoscopic display system and test it on an Army vehicle. The market survey is part of a potential TARDEC 3D Display Without Glasses and Head Tracking program.
TARDEC officials are making inquiries to industry for the potential cost, schedule, and logistics necessary to develop and mature an autonomously adjustable autostereoscopic display system for manned and unmanned vetronics systems. The system should be able to track the user's lateral head position automatically relative to the display, and the viewable area of the display should be at least 17 inches. The daylight readability of the display should be 300 to 1,000 nits.
Companies interested should contact TARDEC's Jon Neill by phone at 586-282-9595, or Lisa Lynch by e-mail at email@example.com.
