The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) teamed up with Zebra Imaging, company that creates digitally-mastered, full-colored holographic images, to create a real-time, 360-degree 3D holographic display. The latter would be used to assist battle planners.

The project is called the Urban Photonic Sandtable Display (UPSD). With the new system up to 20 users will be able to observe a large-format, interactive 3D display without special glasses.

Specialists at DARPA mentioned that the invention will not only help team-based mission planning, but will also be used to assist visualization and interpretation of sophisticated 3D data like intelligence and medical imagery.
