The main goals of our program can be summarized as follows 1 To design and build a helmet mounted display with commercially available components in order to demonstrate the proposed dual insertion display concept which will provide a very large field of view FOV image. 2 To design and layout silicon on sapphire circuits which will be used in the Phase 2 work. 3 To examine the issues associated with the wireless communication of images. The goal of the Phase 2 program is to replace the commercially available low resolution displays of the Phase 1 HMD prototype with ultrathin silicon on sapphire based active matrix addressed liquid crystal displays AMLCDs. As explained in the following sections of the proposal, the use of ultrathin silicon on sapphire UTSOS technology provides some fundamental advantages which gives us the technological edge when competing with other display companies. The final HMD will receive image data via wireless transmission channels. Color will be generated using Textronix color shutters.
