According to the company, the tech company Red 6 conducted its first multi-aircraft augmented reality (AR) training flight using both real and virtual machines.
A recent exercise is an advance towards the “military metaverse” of combat flight training, which allows multiple pilots to communicate simultaneously while using a synthetic training environment. Red 6 Said in the announcement made during UP.Summit Mobility Conference This week, it’s underway in Bentonville, Arkansas.
During the test flight, pilots of two Berkut 540 experimental aircraft departed from Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) in California and entered the AR environment of Red 6 called the Combined Augmented Reality Battlespace Operation Network (CARBON).
Linked to CARBON, pilots can see and interact with the AR-generated Boeing KC-46 Pegasus tanker. Through AR, one pilot conducted a training mission in a tanker and another pilot observed in real time.
Daniel Robinson, Founder and CEO of Red6, said: , In the statement.
The test flight will take place two years after Red 6 implements what is referred to as the “world’s first live dogfight” for artificial intelligence-powered virtual aircraft.
“This flight introduced the groundbreaking display and control systems needed to bring AR into the real world while at the same time integrating tactical AI into the Red 6 system,” the company said. increase.
According to Robinson, Red 6 is currently considering an AR solution on the ground.
“We are in the early stages of exploring the solution to getting off and the ability to connect the getting off soldiers to the pilots of the plane so they can see a common picture,” he said. rice field. Flying..
