DI will be showcasing AUGMENTOR, an augmented reality (AR) maintenance tool originally developed for commercial trucking fleet maintenance. The current system includes compatibility with augmented reality headsets (i.e. HoloLens, MagicLeap), an Android and iOS application, and a web-based dashboard for authoring, storage, and dissemination of content.  

Through an AFWERX contract, DI has worked with the Air Force to expand AUGMENTOR to support aviation maintenance training and custom designed features to meet airmen needs. In partnership with the 367 Training Support Squadron out of Hill Air Force Base (AFB), the DI team led a series of software development iterations and demonstrations culminating in a successful small group trial at Travis AFB.  The new approach to Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contracts initiated by AFWERX provided DI the unique opportunity to rapidly advance existing technology to meet Air Force needs.

AFA's Air Warfare Symposium brings together Air Force leadership as well as leaders in industry, academia, and government officials to discuss the issues and challenges facing the Air Force today and in the future.
