Augmented Reality Startup Red 6 Lands Multimillion-Dollar Contract to Support US Air Force Training
The emergence of Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 as a cutting-edge US Army tool has focused a spotlight on the implementation of augmented reality and the military.
The startup: Red 6 is leveraging that interest in a different way by harnessing AR technology to assist the US Air Force, powered by recent funding and a new military-related contract.
Santa Monica and Olando-based startup Red 6 has just revealed in August 2021 that it entered into a contract “worth up to $70 million over 5 years” that will allow the company to service the AR needs of the US Air Force.
Red 6 has developed a system it calls the Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS), which allows fighter pilots to engage in in-air simulations using AR software and hardware in the cockpit.
