CHICAGO, 17 Nov. 2006. Investigative Services Agencies Inc. is in negotiations to acquire Intrepid Defense & Security Systems Inc.
Intrepid Defense is the manufacturer of LifeVision3D, a holographic autostereoscopic secure three-dimensional display that provides real-time, volumetric images that appear in "free space" in front of the display screen.
The system combines technology in electronics and precision optics with readily available computers to produce a holographic optical system. Information can be sent from live stereo cameras, videotape, or can be computer-generated. The image is seen clearly regardless of surrounding light and needs no glasses for viewing -- unlike "virtual reality" systems.
The Department of Homeland Security used the LifeVision3D technology at Super Bowl XL.
Hidden from public view at Super Bowl XL, live-action 3-D holograms created from signals streaming in from networks of electronic eyes helped Homeland Security Agency officials detect people and objects suspected of endangering the 65 thousand ticket holders crowding into Detroit's Ford Field, and the thousands more celebrating in downtown Detroit.
