The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has released a new 3D system that renders battlefields and varying forms of terrain through a holographic table for strategic planning purposes. The system, named the Urban Photonic Sandtable Display (UPSD) can be scaled up to six feet diagonally and allows visual depth of up to 12-inches.

From the press release:

UPSD assists team-based mission planning, visualization and interpretation of complex 3D data such as intelligence and medical imagery. It permits simultaneous viewing for up to 20 participants and is interactive, allowing the image to be frozen, rotated and zoomed up to the resolution limit of the data. The holographic display enables full visual depth capability up to 12 inches. The technology also enables realistic two-dimensional printouts of the 3D imagery that front line troops can take with them on missions.
