WASHINGTON, DC,- The future of advanced fighter pilot training jumps into the virtual world as Boeing [NYSE: BA] and augmented reality developer Red 6 announced they are collaborating to develop cutting-edge technology for air combat and training in advanced tactical aircraft. Boeing is the first company to partner with Red 6 on this type of advanced training technology.
The joint agreement sets the stage for future integration of Red 6’s Advanced Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS) and the Augmented Reality Command and Analytic Data Environment (ARCADE). Boeing Next generation aircraft manufactured. The T-7 and F-15EX platforms could be among the first to receive ATARS and ARCADE.
The system allows pilots to see and interact with augmented reality aircraft, targets and threats on the ground or in the air while flying and training in their actual aircraft, eliminating the cost and need for multiple platforms and “real-world -Training” reduces exercises.’
“We continue to revolutionize the way we train and fight. Red 6’s augmented reality system with the groundbreaking T-7 and F-15EX represents another transformative leap in performance. This agreement is the latest example of that Boeing’s Commitment to investing in technology and our drive to drive innovation in the aerospace and defense sectors,’ said Dan GilianVice President and CEO of US government services for Boeing Global Services.

These include air combat maneuvers, refueling, tactical formation, and ground-to-air gun battles. ARCADE increases the efficiency of mission planning, briefing and debriefing with real-time 3D visualizations for mission engineering and reconstruction.
“Readiness and lethality are essential if our war fighters are to prevail against equal opponents. Boeing’s Next-generation platforms will be the first aircraft in the world capable of boarding our augmented reality training environment. Together we will bring about a paradigm shift in the quality, quantity and cost of training future pilots,” he said Daniel RobinsonFounder and CEO of Red 6.
