Boeing and augmented reality developer Red 6 have announced a collaboration to develop advanced air-to-air combat technology and training for advanced tactical aircraft. Boeing is the first company to partner with Red 6 on this advanced learning technology.
The joint agreement sets the stage for future integration of the Red 6 Advanced Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS) and Augmented Reality Command and Analytics Data Environment (ARCADE) into Boeing’s next-generation aircraft. Among the first ATARS and ARCADE may receive platforms T-7 and F-15EX.
Using the system, pilots will be able to see and interact with augmented reality aircraft, targets and threats on the ground or in the air while flying and training in their real aircraft, reducing the cost and need for multiple platforms and ‘real life training’ exercises.’
“We continue to revolutionize the way we train and fight. Red 6’s augmented reality system with the T-7 and F-15EX represents another transformative leap in capability. This agreement is the latest example of Boeing’s commitment to investing in technology and our commitment to leadership in innovation in the aerospace and defense sectors,” said Dan Gillian, vice president and general manager of US Government Services, Boeing Global Services.
According to Red 6, ATARS provides a variety of tactical training scenarios through augmented reality. These include air combat maneuvers, refueling, tactical order, and ground-to-air engagements. ARCADE increases the efficiency of mission planning, briefing and debriefing by using real-time 3-D visualization to construct and reconstruct sorties.
