How Northrop Grumman Will Revolutionize Critical Defense Infrastructure with AR

Description

Ask any teaching or training professional, they would argue that the success of their students isn’t just about maximizing the speed at which they learn, but that they pay attention for enough time. Homework is designed for that purpose: to force you to spend enough time paying attention to the subject. For employee training programs it is a bit more complicated: while some are scored with tests, they have found that real world training success rates track closer on training “engagement” — a measure of how much attention was paid. Indicators of real world success rates include time to first satisfactory “production” execution, mean time between execution failure, and rework rate.When visually engaging training tools are used, net success rates go up, and training times to reach competency go down. And that is why augmented reality works so brilliantly for training. It is both engaging and visual, a stimulating graphical superposition of the computer world on top of the real one. When you add the standard internet advantages of anytime & anywhere, you open up order-of-magnitude gains to your organization.

You’ve been told it works, you’ve seen it work, and maybe you’ve even made it work—but why does it work? Even enterprise developers and pilot champions do not always know the robust research that lives in the bones of their wonderful products, and to no fault of their own. The XR industry has somewhat overused valuable terms and frameworks (presence, immersion, transfer, embodiment, recall, DICE, etc.) for the worthy sake of speed of communication to the hoi polloi, but at the expense of breaking down the mechanics that would create a dialogue to push our products and pilots to the bleeding edge of efficacy. This I promise: the words you use will change your outcomes. To that end, in this talk I’ll cover the aforementioned broad vocabulary, add some depth to each item with research and stories (near transfer, far transfer, embodiment congruency, contextual learning, Zone of Proximal Confusion, etc.), and end with a few practical examples of how these terms will very practically impact your simulation design and execution.

As we embark on our digital transformation, the digital twin has become a more central focus in our strategy. Enterprises with distributed facilities, regardless of how many or few, are challenged to digitalize because our workflows are spread across too many unintegrated platforms. Allow me to share our vision, our journey, the wins, and the pitfalls as we forge ahead into the METALverse with Beamo.

The rise of virtual care services is an emerging trend to provide medical services without the need of physical presence. However, there are barriers related to the physician’s ability to measure vital signs, emotional and physical conditions, which prevents virtual care to deliver the same level of experience, as is the case with face-to-face care. We have come up with innovative solutions based on set of our technologies, related to Vital signs measurements, EmoGraphy stress management, 3D depth sensing, etc., to enable AR/VR Enhanced Virtual Care. The proposed solutions try to improve upon existing virtual care by combining remote physiological measurement with 3D computer vision models of human pose and new forms of rendering 3D health information in an immersive and interactive manner, allowing spatially aligned rendering of vital signs data with captured images. The proposed solution, can be extended to remotely monitor multiple subjects, which is useful for providing elderly care in crowded places.
