3DIcon Corp., developer of 3D projection and display technologies, today announced it has signed a Facilities Use Agreement with Oklahoma State University-Tulsa’s (OSU-Tulsa) Helmerich Research Center in which 3DIcon will utilize the world-class technology facilities to create the next generation image space for CSpace®, 3DIcon’s patented 3D volumetric technology.

3DIcon said it will use the facility’s cutting-edge equipment to create an image space with enhanced brightness and resolution, which will be significantly larger than the current prototype, yet transportable enough for use at trade shows and in meetings with potential commercial partners.

“OSU’s Helmerich Research Center provides the state-of-the-art tools needed to develop the next generation image space for 3D display. This agreement will assist us in reaching our next milestone in technology development on our path to commercialization,” Dr. Brian Hoover, 3DIcon’s vice president of Technology Development stated in the press release.

The $43 million Helmerich Research Center is home to laboratories used to develop the next generation of composites and materials. The center’s broader focus is on material science with four strategic research and technology development thrusts including nanotechnology, biosciences, energy and aerospace.

Dr. Kenneth Ede, assistant dean of OSU’s College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, said the research center’s support of advancing technology companies is part of its overall goal.

“We are excited to make available the world-class resources of our Helmerich Research Center for 3DIcon’s continued technology development. Supporting Oklahoma companies like 3DIcon to help launch industries that are leading and transforming technologies is one of the missions of the Helmerich Research Center,” Dr. Ede stated.
