In a $10 billion space program where it takes years to build a spacecraft, but only seconds to launch it, teams work in a high stakes environment daily to ensure spacecraft are built with the highest precision and accuracy. Hear from leaders at Lockheed Martin, Scope AR and Microsoft HoloLens on how augmented reality (AR) is not only being used to build spacecraft like Orion, but improve the accuracy, efficiency, and quality with which they’re built. Learn how AR is also reducing training time, making it easy enough for summer interns to develop and follow work instructions. The panel will also explore how the introduction of 6DOF headsets and the integration of AI capabilities will impact the future of AR in space programs.
