FREMONT, CA: Several military forces and a number of defence contractors are investing in AR technology. Military personnel are increasing expenditure in this sector on the acquisition and use of advanced technology. The aerospace and defence industry is well positioned to use this technology and is already using it for maintenance purposes in some cases.

Trends in aerospace and defence

The key aerospace and defence trends affecting the AR industry as identified by GlobalData are listed below.

Platform

Engineers and designers from the aerospace and defence industries have realised AR's potential for early design of platforms and systems. The ability to build new equipment using AR will significantly accelerate the process of prototyping and development. NASA uses the AR technology developed by Lockheed Martin to speed up the construction of the Orion spacecraft. Engineers can also explore and solve existing technical problems more efficiently utilizing AR technology, while headsets can be considered for individual use by designers working on a project.

Engineers can also explore and solve existing technical problems more efficiently utilizing AR technology, while headsets can be considered for individual utilise by designers working on a project.Boeing is providing its technicians with AR glasses as a means of assisting them during the design phase and in the routine maintenance of aircraft. The actual positive effect of AR devices on assembly line efficiency and maintenance quality is too early to be assessed. However, the increasingly affordable cost of AR technologies suggests that such trials will continue.

Training

AR has significant training applications and can be used to create low-risk, effective training missions, particularly for pilots. The potential to create a safe training environment for pilots will be lucrative, as military personnel seek to develop training in a variety of scenarios without putting members at risk.VR has drawbacks in that the environment is completely simulated, while AR can provide a real environment where only threats are simulated.
