Red 6 has announced that Mike Holmes, Ret. U.S. Air Force General has been appointed to the Red 6 Board Chairman. Ret. Gen. Mike Holmes had joined the company’s advisory board in October 2020.
Red 6 is working with the USAF by providing AR solutions for military training as part of the AFWERX program, a USAF program to foster an environment of innovation within the USAF service.
“It goes without saying that General Holmes is an incredible addition to the Red 6 board and will be instrumental in guiding us towards achieving our vision. As the company continues to grow, and our capabilities mature, we will draw heavily on the experience, leadership, and unique insight that General Holmes brings to the table,” – Daniel Robinson, CEO and Founder of Red 6.
“I am delighted to join the Red 6 board as chairman and I’m eager to play a role in the continued growth of such an important company. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time with Dan and the Red 6 team and I am extremely impressed with his vision and unwavering commitment to addressing a critical national security readiness issue. Red 6 is ushering in a new training paradigm for our combat aviators that redefines what is possible and provides compelling financial benefits. I’m excited to play my part in helping to bring this technology to the cockpit, and I believe the Red 6 approach will ultimately scale across all domains.” – Ret. Gen. Holmes.
According to the company, the Pentagon has turned its training readiness focus from supporting almost twenty years of ground-based operations in Afghanistan, and Iraq, to building the readiness needed to defeat a near-peer threat.
Red 6 stated that it has been addressing this sensed readiness shortfall within the U.S. aerial combat capabilities by concentrating on a future vision by combining AI and AR to create a realistic simulation training environment allowing flight crews to visually maneuver against current and near-peer threat.
