The augmented reality technology provider for military training applications, Red 6, announced that it has received a contract from Tactical Funding Increase (TACFI), an implementation of the US Air Force Supplemental Funding Pilot Program.
The contract has been awarded to support the continued integration of the company’s Advanced Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS) into the Air Force T-38 Talon. ATARS allows pilots while flying in the actual sky to engage and interact with synthetically generated objects up there. The technology can facilitate complex training exercises, such as air-to-air refueling, formation flying, and air combat maneuvering.
“ATARS represents a transformational leap forward in augmented reality technology, and by applying this capability to military flight training, we are ushering in a new paradigm in training that will ultimately scale to all warfighters, across all domains,” said Daniel Robinson, Founder and CEO of Red 6.
“We continue to be encouraged by the US Air Force’s confidence in both the Red 6 solution and our mission to revolutionize training for our warfighter. Red 6 is ushering in a new era of training, and with the support of the US Air Force, we aim to deliver an extraordinary increase to readiness, proficiency, training capacity, and capability,” he added.
Building on its strong foundation with the T-38 integration, Red 6 plans to integrate into the T-45 aircraft and then the fourth-generation aircraft, including the F-16 and F-15E.
