Dual Servo Optical Projection System (SOPS) - A Solution for Two Crewmember and Night Vision Goggle Display Needs 892353
A head-tracked projection display system has been developed which shows promise for both night vision goggle training and vehicles having two crewmembers. The display provides high resolution in the viewer's foveal region with lower resolution in the peripheral. Head tracking allows apparent high resolution everywhere within the servo's range of motion. The system has significant training value for Night Vision Goggles (NVG) which are typically head tracked displays. View separation of projected displays will permit independant scenes on a common dome screen. This gives crewmembers, in a close proximity environment, a correct perspective, wide field-of-view display.
