Creative Microsystems Corporation is developing the Holographic Imageguide Display, or HID, which is a rugged light-weight, sunlight-readable, high-resolution see-through display for augmented or mixed reality which we believe can provide increased situational awareness for many military applications. The display excels in situations where a user must maintain their normal sight (such as shooting a weapon), or when size and weight are a primary consideration (such as behind a night vision device). The display uses holographic technology to display projected images through an imageguide directly to the user’s eye. The system connects to standard image signal inputs and has a small form factor for support electronics. The results are a full-color, low-cost display that can superimpose images onto a user’s field of view. Creative Microsystems has integrated the display into several data and video systems, including geolocated symbology, head trackers, image fusion and augmented/mixed reality for operators, simulations, training and mission command.
