DigiLens, Inc.® Receives SBIR for Curved Waveguide Development

| Tags: | Comments: 0

Sunnyvale, CA (Oct-12) – DigiLens, Inc.® (DigiLens) has received an SBIR contract from the US Air Force (USAF) to develop a display device that can be used in Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) for simulation and training.  Specifically, DigiLens will develop a curved waveguide element with embedded switchable diffractive elements – the heart of the company’s Switchable Bragg Grating (SBG) technology. The ideal HMD for USAF simulation and training is an augmented reality display that provides symbology overlaid in the field of vision (FOV) of the trainee.  This image should have […]

SUNNYVALE, Calif., October, 2012 – SBG Labs has received a new contract from the NAVY to develop a head-mounted display (HMD) solution to aid in the simulated training for Marines using augmented reality techniques. The contract calls for the development of a near-to-eye color HMD with a focus at infinity and a monocular field of view of 65 x 52 degrees. The display will also have a large eye relief and large eye box (viewable zone). Resolution is expected to exceed human visual acuity – a long time goal of […]

SUNNYVALE, Calif., October, 2012 – The foundation technology developed within SBG Labs is the electrically switchable Bragg Grating. This technology has not only enabled the development of waveguide based near-to-eye, heads-up and pico projection display applications, but the architecture can also be used to enable a rage if imaging applications, including fingerprint scanners used by Department of Homeland Security for biometrics applications. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) agrees and awarded SBG Labs a SBIR grant to pursue development. Current fingerprint scanners use lasers, optics and rotating prisms […]
