LOCKHEED MARTIN INVESTS IN RED 6, DEVELOPER OF AUGMENTED REALITY FLIGHT TRAINING, DOGFIGHTING

Lockheed Martin has invested an undisclosed amount of funding into start-up Red 6, a developer of augmented reality flight training and dogfighting software for use in a purpose-built helmet-mounted headset during flight. The Santa Monica, California-based company plans to use the funds to speed up development and commercialisation of its Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS), it said on 17 June.

RED 6 DEBUTS AUGMENTED REALITY MILITARY TACTICAL TRAINING SYSTEM

The air refueling probe moves alarmingly close to our heads as we inch carefully into position beneath the tail of a Boeing KC-46A flying over California’s coastal range. Off the tanker’s right wing, a Lockheed Martin F-22 fighter jostles to stay in formation, making for an impressive sight. Maneuvering in flight this close to any object is an unusual experience, but what makes this particularly special is that, despite the apparent realism, neither of the aircraft I …

RED 6 BRINGS AR TO USAF COMBAT TRAINING

“A Santa Monica, CA based start- up, Red 6, has announced a $1.5M development grant from AFWERX (the US Air Force tech incubator) to use augmented reality to solve what co-founder and CEO Dan Robinson calls “the military’s multi-billion dollar pain point.” The USAF alone is over 2,000 pilots short and is spending billions of dollars per year to providing adversary air-to-air training through the same expensive, dangerous and costly mock dogfights used for training in WWI.”

FLYING THE AUGMENTED SKIES WITH RED 6

Imagine you’re a new military pilot about to refuel in the air, the first time on your own without the instructor. You’re flying in formation with a KC-46 tanker and in preparation for refueling, you slow down slightly and drop back behind the tanker, which still looms large in your view. The refueling drogue hangs from the tail of the tanker, beckoning you to move forward and capture it in the receptacle on the nose of your jet…

FLYING WITH AUGMENTED REALITY

“The ability to train top U.S. military aviators in air-to-air combat usually requires pilots acting as opposing aerial fighters. Representing the enemy in training dogfights is quite costly and dangerous, says Daniel Robinson, RAF (Ret.). Robinson, co-founder and CEO of Red6 Aerospace, developed an augmented reality platform, called Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality System, known as A-TARS, that creates virtual opponents, such as the Chinese J-20, for pilots to dogfight against.”

IS AUGMENTED REALITY THE NEXT FRONTIER IN FLIGHT TRAINING

“An Air Force-backed augmented-reality company plans to demonstrate airborne technology in November that it says could do away with Red Air training. Red 6 Aerospace’s software simulates enemies that pilots can fight during live flights. Rather than hooking up users to a closed, indoor system, the simulation works outside and adjusts as the user moves, according to creator Dan Robinson…”
