AVATAR Partners, an augmented, virtual, and mixed reality software solutions provider, has won a contract to provide SIA-QA (Simplified, Intelligent AR Quality Assurance) for the US Navy. The SIA-QA solution will aim to support aircraft wiring maintenance. This augmented reality automatic QA system mixes AI-based performance assessment and manual in one-single solution to support inspectors quickly observe “as-is” conditions to fasten installation and enhance accuracy.
“These variances in the environment could include different lighting conditions, personnel and support equipment movement, and multiple aircraft configurations. Understanding the expected boundaries of the environment within the AR experience will allow the solution to capture and adjust using machine learning.” – Michael Davis, Technical Director, AVATAR Partners.
SIA-QA solution incorporates aircraft maintenance training for engineers who have finished tours away from aircraft for which they were initially trained. “Applying military-grade augmented reality provides the resources needed to establish critical training regimens that support a risk-managed framework for preparation and deployment.” – Marlo Brooke, AVATAR Partners CEO.
