September 1, 2019: Convergent 3D has announced that it has developed an innovative technology that could save lives and reduce accidents, not only in the military but also the automotive and maritime industries. Convergent 3D is encouraging other technology and technology-oriented companies to explore its software in their products and businesses. Moreover, the company is particularly asking military personnel to explore the true potential of its cost-effective, lifesaving technology. This tech allows the drivers of vehicles to maneuver with confidence and increased speed. “In the past, we have primarily targeted the Army and Marines because the software was developed in order to help prevent rollovers in unknown or difficult terrain,” said Amanda Fulmer, Communications Director for Convergent 3D. The software, trademarked, “We See Depth” ™ provides basically a 3D image without glasses. It uses a single camera, or multiple cameras, that gives the operator of a vehicle depth perception and increased situational awareness. “It has the capacity for numerous military, maritime and industrial applications.” Fulmer added.
Numerous soldiers and Marines have lost their lives or been injured during combat as well as training due to the vehicle rollovers. This technological solution is designed to prevent that from happening. As a result, it could save lives, reduce injuries, and mitigate equipment losses around the world. Convergent3D considers it to be one major solution to the military’s epidemic of vehicle deaths. It has been designed to save the lives of our young service men and women who serve our nation.
In addition to benefiting our country’s armed forces and the maritime industry, the software has applications to the trucking industry, the construction industry, A.I. technology, medical technology, safety companies, as well as the entertainment industry and gaming world. Based in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, the company is led by a Vietnam veteran-turned-CEO, Dennis Drew, President, Ken Bergquist and team members. Convergent3D is a member of the National Advanced Mobility Consortium, NAMC.
Convergent3d (C3D) and the U.S. Army Night Vision & Electronic Sensor Directorate (NVESD) at Fort Belvoi.
A CRADA has been executed between Convergent3d (C3D) and the U.S. Army Night Vision & Electronic Sensor Directorate (NVESD) at Fort Belvoir. The Cooperative Reseach And Development Agreement (CRADA) undertakes the test and evaluation of C3D depth perception technology when incorporated in legacy Driver’s Vision Enhancer (DVE) systems.
C3D will increase the safety of our service men and women, through the pursuit of partnering opportunities on this platform. The Office of Naval Research is the S&T lead, and conducting capabilities evaluations on the ARV. C3D is looking to enhance the C4ISR capability by added “Depth”.

July 11- The C3D Team completed a success series of demonstration at Fort Benning, GA. Members of the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) representing both Manned and Unmanned platforms were present. All recognized “Depth Perception”.
Note: More to follow…
The C3D Team successfully demonstrated their “Depth Perception” and video analytics technology aboard the STILETTO vessel in Little Creek, VA. A select audience from the military and non-military witnessed the technology in both day and night time mock maneuvers. During the demonstrations C3D and the Lockheed-Martin GiroCam providing enhanced vision capability for the STILETTO pilot aiding in both maneuvering and navigation.
Our thanks goes out to the STILETTO staff and crew who were well prepared and willing to “help us succeed!” We were given full access to the craft and the technical and logistics exchanges were excellent.
Note: Following this success, C3D have been asked to conduct a second set of demonstrations in late September. Stay tuned…
This Tuesday, we successfully completed our second fit-check on the STILETTO vessel at the Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Virginia Beach. The STILETTO staff were very helpful, as we finalized our mounting for the screen, cameras and cable runs, for our upcoming demonstrations the w/o April 16. If you need further information please contact David Thomas 540-359-1948.
Convergent3D entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC)
Convergent3D entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), to demonstrate the C3D capability on the “Stiletto” vessel, in both riverine and open sea environments while in degtaded environments. Demonstration scheduled for April.
For more details to include the potential of attending the demonstration, please call David 540-359-1948
Convergent3D entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center, (CERDEC) Ft. Belvoir, VA. The CRADA will explore the C3D technology while in degraded environments with the goal to improve, Driver Vision Enhancement (DVE).
C3D successfully participated in “Thunderstorm 17-2” Mega-City / Subterranean Challenge. C3D will be providing its patented Depth-Of-View capabilities in various degraded environments.
