    3DIcon is a developer of groundbreaking 3D projection and display technologies that are being designed to produce full color, 360° volumetric images. Its proprietary technologies are revolutionary because they leapfrog traditional methods of creating 3D images on a 2D screen. The company targets an estimated $1 billion market opportunity, projected to grow to $2 - $3 billion by 2015.

    The company is currently in talks with industry leading Fortune 100 companies for licensing and co-development in a number of applications including: medical imaging; scanning for homeland security; geo-spatial imaging for oil & gas exploration; air traffic control; entertainment; advertising; and gaming. Solidifying its leadership role in 3D imaging, 3DIcon’s CSpace® 3D imaging technology recently received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

    First to Market In True 3D Display For Large Installed Base of 3D Image Capture Equipment There is a tremendous market opportunity in commercializing a true 3D projection device to complement the 3D image capturing equipment already on the market. Today’s 3D imaging technologies are limited to presenting data that is captured in 3D onto a 2D screen. A wealth of 3D data is lost in translating images back down to a 2D screen. The company is positioned as first to market to capture this opportunity.

    Intellectual Property Portfolio In December of 2010, 3DIcon received a patent for its CSpace® 3D rendering methods. 3DIcon has the exclusive worldwide rights on this patent and its portfolio of technologies developed at the University of Oklahoma (OU), under its Sponsored Research Agreement. The company has two issued patents and three more pending in the United States, as well as two patents pending in Europe and Japan. The company believes that additional patents, copyrights, and trademarks will flow from its research activities.

    Significant Technology Team with R&D Facilities 3DIcon’s technology has been developed through a Sponsored Research Agreement (SRA) with the University of Oklahoma (OU). The company has built an impressive technology team that includes Dr. Hakki Refai, Chief Technology Officer. Dr. Refai is the inventor of 3DIcon’s technologies and was a professor and researcher at OU prior to joining 3DIcon. Dr. Brian Hoover, Vice President, Technology Development, is a specialist in advanced optics and materials. He has led research efforts in the most advanced imaging and optics technologies for the U.S. Air Force. Vivek Bhaman, the company’s former President, has re-joined 3DIcon as Chairman of its Technology Advisory Board. Mr. Bhaman has an extensive track record in commercializing cutting edge technologies. Several other technology experts round-out 3DIcon’s team.

    The company has a Facilities Use Agreement with OSU-Tulsa’s Helmerich Research Center, a $43 million, 123,000-square-foot facility that houses laboratories to develop the next generation of composites and materials. The research center contains specialized laboratories, a clean room, an imaging suite, and advanced information technology equipment. Since opening in 2008, OSU researchers have already been successful in securing grants from several entities including NASA and the National Science Foundation.

    CSpace® CSpace is a unique 3D display that is being designed to produce high-resolution full-color, true 3D images. The display does not require special viewing aids or glasses, does not cause viewer fatigue during prolonged use, and is capable of producing translucent images for viewing the inside of images, such as human organs, cargo containers, baggage, ocean or terrain features, or troop carriers, all of which are beyond the capabilities of current display methodologies. CSpace is a pure, static 3D display that doesn’t require mechanical rotational movement and has the potential to generate 3D images.
