Red 6, an Augmented Reality (AR) technology firm at the forefront of synthetic air combat training and augmented reality applications, has signed a memorandum of understanding with AERALIS, the creators of a modular aircraft system.

The companies announced the collaboration to jointly help define the future of pilot training at the Military Flight Training conference in London this week.

“Red 6 is excited about the prospect of collaborating with AERALIS to enhance our collective influence on the future of UK MOD aviation,” said  Daniel Robinson, Founder and CEO of Red 6.

AERALIS, in collaboration with the UK MOD’s Pyramid team, employs an innovative open software architecture that can swiftly integrate Red 6’s ATARS (Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality System) and future updates directly into the AERALIS system, bypassing costly redesigns and certifications. This ensures that military pilots will always have the most advanced training solution available.

AERALIS CEO Tristan Crawford said: “We are delighted to announce this MOU with Red 6, a company at the forefront of synthetic air combat training whose expertise in AR technologies will perfectly complement our innovative aircraft system.

“Working with Red 6 gives us the opportunity to provide a fully integrated augmented reality solution with seamless capability upgrades through life using the cutting-edge AERALIS integrated digital environment. We are looking forward to working together to further enhance our world-leading training solution.”Subscribe to the FINN weekly newsletter
