ABSTRACT: Bennett Aerospace proposes to develop a curved, transparent, binocular, full-color holographic optical waveguide display for head-mounted displays, helmet-mounted displays (HMDs), and other transparent application areas such as visors and windshields where curved displays are desired for on-surface/near-to-surface integration. The Bennett Aerospace approach will be lightweight, capable of displaying synthetic imagery, providing focus at infinity, can be designed with varying degrees of curvature, and provides a relatively large field of view (FOV). BENEFIT: When the displays are fully developed, users will have a significantly increased situational awareness for improved safety and effectiveness.
