Rheinmetall Electronics UK have signed a partnership agreement with Lightspace Technologies, Latvia to advance and produce Augmented Reality Systems using Multi-focal technology for use in XR and AR applications for the military market. Multi-focal solutions offer the ability to present images and information across multiple focal planes, which give operational enhancements and remove the eye fatigue induced by other single focal-plane solutions, according to the company.

During 2023, Rheinmetall Electronics UK and Lightspace Technologies engaged in proof-of-concept development that was demonstrated as part of the Rheinmetall offering at the UK Ministry of Defence Army Warfighting Experiment (AWE) and to the UK Army’s Armoured Trials and Development Unit (ATDU).

A continuation of the development in 2024 and this partnership agreement marks a strengthening in the collaboration between Rheinmetall Electronics UK and Lightspace Technologies.  This aims to leverage the respective strengths of each company to create Augmented Reality systems, with development and realisation tailored specifically for defence and security applications. By combining Rheinmetall’s global defence and security market with Lightspace’s expertise in augmented reality technology, the partnership seeks to develop solutions which significantly enhance situational awareness and decision-making processes to enhance operational effectiveness.

Lightspace Technologies CEO, Ilmars Osmanis said: “We look forward to collaborating closely with them to develop and deliver transformative AR solutions that address the unique challenges and requirements of defence and security operations for a wide range of use cases.”
