Airborne Holographic Projector - How far have they come with this technology??
Don't trust your eyes.

I have heard that a laser pointer can interrupt a hologram. Anyone know if that's true?

5.6 Airborne Holographic Projector
A projector system that displays a three-dimensional visual image in a desired location, removed from the display generator.

The projector can be used for psychological operations and strategic perception management.

It is also useful for optical deception
and cloaking, providing a momentary distraction when engaging an unsophisticated adversary.

Making Three-Dimensional Holograms Visible From All Sides
Discuss this and other technologies
with colleagues at the
Reader Forum

Three-dimensional virtual reality displays could be viewed without visual aids.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
A technique for projecting holographic images to make both still and moving three-dimensional displays is undergoing development. Unlike older techniques based on stereoscopy to give the appearance of three-dimensionality, the developmental technique would not involve the use of polarizing goggles, goggles equipped with miniature video cameras, or other visual aids. Unlike in holographic display as practiced until now, visibility of the image would not be restricted to a narrow range of directions about a specified line of sight to a holographic projection plate. Instead, the image would be visible from any side or from the top; that is, from any position with a clear line of sight to the projection apparatus. In other words, the display could be viewed as though it were an ordinary three-dimensional object. The technique has obvious potential value for the entertainment industry, and for military uses like displaying battlefield scenes overlaid on three-dimensional terrain maps.

An essential element of the technique is the use of block of silica aerogel as the display medium. Silica aerogel is an open-cell glass foam with a chemical composition similar to that of quartz and a density as low as about one-tenth that of quartz. The sizes of cell features are of the order of 100 Å. Silica aerogel is a suitable display medium because it is nearly completely transparent, with just enough scattering and reflection to enable the generation of a real image.

The figure illustrates a conceptual application in which a three-dimensional topographical map would be displayed by fusing images projected into a block of silica aerogel from four separate holograms. One could use static holograms to project still images, either alone or in combination with computer-generated holograms to project moving or still images. A computer-generated hologram would be downloaded into a large liquid-crystal, which would be illuminated by a laser projection apparatus to display the holographic image in the aerogel block. For example, the terrain image could be projected from static holograms, while a computer-generated hologram would be used to depict a vehicle moving on the terrain.

This work was done by Frederick Mintz, Tien-Hsin Chao, Peter Tsou, and Nevin Bryant of Caltech for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. For further information, access the Technical Support Package (TSP) free on-line at www.nasatech.com/tsp under the Physical Sciences category.


A Three-Dimensional Topographical Map, projected from holograms for display in a block of aerogel, would be visible from any position above the projection table. One of the holograms could be generated by a computer to depict a vehicle moving on the terrain.


This invention is owned by NASA, and a patent application has been filed. Inquiries concerning nonexclusive or exclusive license for its commercial development should be addressed to the Patent Counsel, NASA Management Office–JPL (818)354-2240. Refer to NPO-20101.

Re: Airborne Holographic Projector - How far have they come with this technology??
Nah, I don't think so.

The potential exists for a hologram to be projected that would make people believe they are seeing any number of things.

Imagine if you look up and see Jesus or another religious figure.

Or, if you see an invasion of spacecraft, or the monster of your imagination.

I don't particularly agree that the target(s) would be unsophisticated, just those who don't know about the technology.

One big problem with your theory: you can't form an object out of light in mid-air. It has to be projected ONTO something. There's no way to make light travel out, say, 20 feet and stop.

This thread caught my att. About 3 yrs. ago I observed 2 c-130 military tranport planes flying under low cloud cover est. 5,000 ft. What was strange this was over East Dallas (large pop.) no militay bases even close by, anyway the two planes were in a very tight formation they banked into cloud cover they were only not visible approx.10 sec. when they re-appeared there wae only one plane? Is this tech already in use?

Re: Airborne Holographic Projector - How far have they come with this technology??
Yes, it is possible to create holograms. Although my only experience with them has been when "they" (as I can them)project images onto objects or people.

For example, when I was a child I saw the image of the virgin mary projected onto a clothes hamper. Weird huh! Anyway, the image was accompanied by a voice that told me to join church. Well, I wasn't catholic so I really didn't know what the image meant. I was 5 years old.

Well, later when I didn't join church I was constipated and a voice told me that if I didn't join church I wouldn't be able to boo boo. Then, I said ok and I did join church.

Now, I know that it was not God talking to me or showing me visions, but a group of people who seem to have a plan for my life.

I suppose a nice spread of upper atmosphere ice crystals would make for a good transparant "screen" for a reverse hologram to reflect in, it would be translucent yet still portray images. Also satellites with high power laser beams could put on a pretty spectacular laser show from outer space, especially if they were beamed into light misty cloud cover. It would look like lightning in different colors.

When I was at the Pink Flyod Division Bell concert, the stadium was full of smoke from fireworks as well as curling out of the giant pig's nostrils on either side of the stage. A huge mirrored egg rosee up in the center and blossomed into a flower and then lasers were bounced off of it. It created the illusion of millions of holographic diamonds dancing through the air - went along great with 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond'!
