This Navy Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will be used to fabricate, measure, and test a novel optical design for use in a new type of ultra-high-definition UHD head mounted virtual reality display HMD that can incorporate a UHD AOI feature without moving parts or extra displays. DTI has demonstrated a large screen UHD projection technology that uses a rapidly scanned microdisplay to produce images possessing much more resolution than the micro-display itself. It accomplishes this by illuminating different sub regions of each pixel during each scan, producing an image made up of the sub regions instead of the pixels. During this project DTI will investigate and bench test a novel illumination and optical system that can produce arrays of sub-pixel sized illumination spots on off the shelf microdisplays in a very compact space. This system will then be operated in conjunction with an eye tracker to demonstrate a moveable high resolution foveal insert in a lower resolution field on an off the shelf microdisplay. DTI will also investigate adaptation of the system to an existing head mounted system.
