Red 6, Miami based aerospace start-up, has recently won a $70 million contract from the U.S. Air Force. With the help of this encouraging accomplishment, the company plans on commercializing its USP augmented reality technology enhancing military training.
The aerospace technology start-up has developed the Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality Systems marking its smashing entry into the defense industry. The system created by the company uses AR technology for creating synthetic threats that pilots can encounter while flying. Pilots and ground operators can thus detect any threats through a flight helmet visor in real-time, high-speed environments. Red 6 wants to take military training up a notch.
Dr. Winston bennet, a crucial member of the Airman Systems Directorate, shared that Red 6 tech directly addresses the pain points in training. Further, the advanced systems offer highly exclusive solutions for military personnel. Red 6 has been a good example of tech ventures seeking out a balance between advancements and costs. The company shifted its operations from California to South Florida to idealize the operational costs. The company backed by Lockheed Martin Ventures has so far raised $41 million.
