Abstract : This document presents in-house research on a Holographic Projector. This device operates by optically guiding the light from each pixel on an internal two-dimensional display to a unique focus in a three-dimensional volume. Properly addressing the 2-D pixel array via conventional computer graphics equipment will, therefore, generate transparent 3-D images which appear to float in space in front of the observer. A detailed mathematical model was created and used to design the Holographic Projector and simulate it's operation. Proof-of-concept experiments were conducted to test the capability of holographic materials to provide the performance predicted by the model. The results of this initial investigation support the continuation of research and development of the Holographic Projector as a special display for applications such as threat warning or directional indication....
