Abstract : Stereoscopic displays have become important tools in the fields of molecular modeling, architectural design, computer-aided design, and medicine. These displays significantly enhance the ability of the viewer to comprehend spatial relationships. With the commercial introduction of flicker-free liquid crystal stereoscopic shutters (LCSS), it has become practical to incorporate stereoscopic 3D into moderately-priced graphics workstations, greatly extending the applicability of this display technique. This Project Three-Dimensional Displays for Battle Management, evaluated the 3D stereoscopic display medium for US Air Force applications. We focused on the identification and development of optimized stereoscopic display techniques for the visualization of terrain data. We applied these display techniques to a simulation of a mission planning and rehearsal system to demonstrate the utility of stereoscopic displays. We made advances in the following areas: (1) Display Measurements: (2) Stereoscopic Projection Geometry; (3) Scene Complexity Management Algorithms; (4) Testbed Implementation.
