Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.J.01. Advanced Optics and Display Applications. Develop and demonstrate a family of core optics and sensors and display technologies for future head-mounted high resolution display/sensor systems (HRDS). By FY96, select and develop state-of-the-art optics (defractive, aspheric, hybrids, etc.), sensors (CCD or Image Intensified CCD), and display (AMEL, FED, FLCD, etc.) technologies for integration into high performance, low weight/cg head-mounted vision systems. Utilize concurrent development of sensor read-out and display driver electronic architectures for power/bandwidth optimization. By FY97, develop laboratory concept demonstrator for integrated high resolution, 60 FOV, low power HRDS components.

Supports: Mounted Warrior, 2nd Gen FLIR HTI, AI2 ATD, Comanche, Advanced Helicopter Pilotage.
