Omnispectravision is a real time electro-optic system that mimics and expands the ability of humans to receive radiant energy at multiple invisible wavelengths and convert it into visual stimuli thru the effect of display energy upon the photosensitive recePtors. A novel trichroic silicon mirror generates a composite plus two samples of three discrete infrared colors across a single InSb/PV detector array. The prototype digital scan con-verter with a recursive filter synchronously samples the multiplexed in-line detectors and transversal filters transform the λ3 > λ2 > λl infrared signals dispersed along the TV scan lines into -R-G-B (minus red, green, blue respectively).
