3DIcon Meets With US Air Force to Discuss Applications of 3D Imaging Technology

TULSA, OK--(Marketwired - October 15, 2014) - 3DIcon Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TDCP), a developer of groundbreaking 3D volumetric display technologies that are designed to produce full color, 360-degree volumetric high-resolution images, announced today it has recently met with members of the United States Air Force to discuss various uses of 3D visualization technology to enhance battle management.

3DIcon, along with strategic partner Schott Defense, visited the Battlespace Visualization Branch (RHCV) of the US Air Force Research Lab in Dayton, Ohio to discuss 3D visualization technology, particularly how 3D technology can better facilitate situational awareness and decision making prior to or during a battle.

The RHCV has been investigating stereoscopic 3D displays, specifically what types of advantages and improvements the technology would provide to the warfighter over standard 2D display. The Air Force has yet to find a solution that fully meets their needs, with the latest attempts being flat surface 3D light projection displays. 3DIcon's CSpace glasses-free volumetric display technology was well received during the meeting and a follow-up is planned to further discuss its potential applications. However, no assurance can be made that such discussions would result in any definitive agreements, funding or other opportunities between 3DIcon and RHCV or related parties.

"Our meeting with the Air Force produced some great discussion and insights into how they are looking to enhance the warfighter, and the different technologies, including 3D, that they are investigating to do so," said Victor Keen, CEO of 3DIcon. "We received some valuable feedback about where 3DIcon's technology can fill a void once fully developed and mature, so we are incredibly encouraged about the current state of our technology."
