Paper Abstract

A remote viewing system is described which does not require a large bandwidth to generate a large field of view at eye-limited resolution. By maching the display to the requirement of human vision over the instantaneous field of v'ew bandwidth savings up to 500:1 can be realized. An extreme aspheric foveal sensor and projection lens was developed which can support a remote viewing link with a FOV of 160 degrees at a bandwidth of 4 MHz. A brassboard demonstration model has been fabricated uneer contract with ONR containing a real display. Also within a 9 foot diameter dome a di -ct view display has been developed under contract with AFAL. Preliminary design of an infra ed version of tie foveal lens shows the feasibility of using this Variable Acuity Remote Viewing System (VARVS) in the 8-14 μ region.
