LOS GATOS, Calif.−−SA Photonics’ SA-92/S Augmented Reality Head Mounted Display was delivered to the U.S. Army PEO-STRI in Orlando for evaluation this week. Bugeye Technologies’ delivery of Reconfigurable Virtual Cockpit Trainers (RVCT) as a part of the U.S. Army Synthetic Training Environment (STE) OTA 1 included SA Photonics’ hardware. The deliveries include multiple versions of mixed reality rotorcraft reconfigurable cockpit systems, man-in-the loop unmanned aerial systems (UAS), as well as six virtual reality door gunner trainers. Details about the delivery can be found on ASDNews’ article “Initial RVCT delivered to the US Army PEO-STRI in Orlando for Evaluation.”
Software partner ZedaSoft, who integrated its Apache- and Blackhawk-simulated OFP software into the Bugeye RVCT systems, has a video demonstrating the realistic evaluation testbed. The use of an SA-92/S in a RVCT is shown in this demonstration.
