Corrosion Resistant Enhanced Surface Technology (CREST)

For Navy, Luminit is developing a new Corrosion Resistant Enhanced Surface Technology (CREST) system based on a modification to our electrophoretic deposition manufacturing process,which presently fabricates custom engineered nano- and micro-textured nickel, chrome, and silver surfaces.The proposed novel corrosion inhibition technology intends to take full advantage of the extraordinary mechanical, optical, and chemical properties of uniformly overlapping micron size graphene flakes applied with our proven low-cost, large-scale nanostructured surface fabrication, coating,and replication process methodology.

Molding Technology for Low-Cost Infrared Chalcogenide Glass Optical Components (CLONED)

For Navy joint strike fighters and night vision goggles, Luminit developed a new manufacturing process for Casting of Low-cost Optics using Nickel Electroforms with Diamond-like coating for fabricating low-cost, multicavity, flexible net-shape cavity inserts that can be combined with a suitable mold base for mass production of IR glass optical components. This process provides a means for producing multiple high-quality optical components from a single nickel master.

Advanced Bridge Windows for Surface Ships (SHAW)

For Navy, Luminit developed a superhydrophobic/hydrophilic hybrid coating for advanced window systems that will prevent fogging on the interior of surface ship windows, and repel water and bacteria on the exterior using nanoparticles and sol-gel technology. This hybrid coating also provides transparent EMI shielding.

Homogenized Hybrid Ultra Bright Backlight (H2B2)

For the Navy, Luminit developed an ultra-bright, ultra-thin, direct-view, Homogenized Hybrid Ultra-Bright Backlight based on mature Luminit diffuser technology and fully synchronized with AMLCD for low-cost, reliable electronics. The lighting on/off cycle is regulated by a smart synchronization scheme of line—imaging six lines by performing fast vertical frame integration so that a human eye sees a complete picture.

Gaze Contingent Immersive Field of View Head Mounted Display (GIFD)

For the Navy, Luminit developed a Gaze-contingent Immersive Field-of-view head mounted Display, based on Luminit’s novel holographic substrate-guided HMD design, that will significantly improve the performance of both eye tracking accuracy and display quality, as it relates to accuracy and precision of real and virtual objects in augmented and simulator environments.

Holographic Preventive Advanced Counter-Sniper(HoPACS)

For the Marines, Luminit developed a new Holographic Preventive Advanced Counter-Sniper device based on the latest advances in holography, laser-scanning techniques, and CMOS technology. This device uses the Bragg angle selectivity of shift and angle multiplexed thick transmission holograms, and the pattern imaged on a CMOS sensor when the holograms are illuminated with laser light to indicate the direction of a potential threat.

Fieldable Midwave Infrared Sum Frequency LADAR Sensor (MIRSF)

For the Navy, Luminit developed a novel fieldable midwave infrared sum frequency LADAR sensor for defense and homeland security. This LADAR sensor will detect midwave infrared light with a highly efficient silicon detector that exceeds the detection capability of current detectors by two orders of magnitude.

Holographic Interferometric Instrument for Threshold Stress Intensity (HITS)

Luminit developed a new Holographic Interferometric Instrument for Threshold Stress Intensity based on a double-exposure holographic interferometric technique to study stress corrosion cracking, providing accurate and fast measuring of KIscc. It will capture relevant performance metrics so that it can be used to prepare a standard measurement procedure through a nationally recognized standards organization

Substrate-guided wave-based Augmented Reality (SARH-HMD)

Luminit developed a new cost-efficient wide FOV full-color see-through Substrate-guided wave based Augmented Reality Holographic Head Mounted Display that will significantly improve infantry training. This device will look like ballistic goggles and fit comfortably and stably on the head. Two >90% efficient color substrate-guided wave Bragg holographic optical elements form an image by passing it through the waveguide and directing it into the users line of sight to provide the augmented reality needed for situational training.
