The proliferation of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) has resulted in a need for the capability to see the operational environment in stereo. In a previous paper the theoretical underpinnings for new types of stereoscopic and autostereoscopic flat-panel displays with full-time, full-resolution images (i.e., no temporal multiplexing and no spatial multiplexing) were presented. Recently, a stereoscopic prototype has been constructed at the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile RDEC and testing is underway. The research presented here describes the application of two liquid crystal displays (LCD) sandwiched together to form a compact, rugged stereoscopic display. Polarized glasses are used to view the image in stereo. The prototype provides a full-time, full-resolution stereoscopic 3D display in a package slightly thicker, but no larger, than the standard liquid crystal display used in laptop computers. The LCDs have been characterized using a Stokes vector polarimeter. The characterization results were very interesting and led to some changes in the encoding algorithms. Significant improvements in the display quality were achieved through these adaptations.
