The crew members of the U.S. Air Force’s 7th Bomb Wing for the B-1 are testing X2 MR Glasses by ThirdEye Gen in concert with software from 3D Media for maintenance operations.
The pilot program stems from the U.S. Air Force’s AFWERX program, which awarded 3D Media a $1 million Small Business Innovation Research contract in November 2019. The contract sought out a company that could build augmented reality (AR) tools to increase efficiency in training and repair operations.
The crew of the 7th Bomb Wing for the B-1 has tested a dozen pairs, and more AR glasses are on the way.
