Avalon Holographics is developing the world’s first “true” 3D holographic displays for the defence and aerospace sector. The displays will revolutionize the way users view and interact with complex information like battlespace visual information, ISR information from cameras and sensors, output from data fusion applications and 3D platform design details.
The displays will be an effective tool for visualizing 3D/multi-dimensional data and objects with depth and spatial characteristics, as if viewed “through a window”. Display users will not require head mounted equipment or glasses, and will experience 3D without the nausea, fatigue and other physical effects of using current virtual reality display devices.


Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Avalon Holographics is a Canadian Small Medium Enterprise (SME) founded in 2015 by Wally Haas. Wally’s background in optics, photonics, networking and semiconductors was instrumental in developing the world’s first 40 Gigabit Optical Transport Network (OTN) software and later, the world’s first 100 Gigabit OTN software. That development led to the growth and eventual acquisition of his previous company, Avalon Microelectronics, by Altera (now Intel).


Principal Products/Services
3D Holographic Displays (i.e. monitors) for use in defence and aerospace. Display systems will consist of an application PC and holographic computer (holographic rendering system) and flat panel displays. Display specifications will be customizable for applications in training/simulation and operations.
