Abstract

ABSTRACT: SensorMetrix is proposing to utilize previously developed metamaerial films with controlled emissivity to build a direct view IR panoramic dome display system. Metamaterial films are demonstrated near black body emissivity. The proposed approach will enable a polychromatic IR display system with low thermal mass and provisions for active cooling to enable high display frame rates and low stray reflections. BENEFIT: The proposed system will be used to provide a test environment for a range of IR sensors utilized in situational awareness, obstruction avoidance and ego-motion estimation applications.
