Red 6 Augmented Reality Mission 

Driven by a personal passion to solve an acutely defined pain point for US and allied forces across the globe, Red 6 is revolutionizing augmented reality (AR) for military training applications. Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) represents the future of how allied forces will train. Currently, however, it is only a 50% solution. Why? Because it only works in the Beyond Visual Range (BVR) environment. Until now, there has been no means by which Virtual and Constructive assets can be visually represented in the real world. 

Airborne Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS) represents this critical missing piece of the jigsaw. Red 6 brings the Virtual and Constructive assets into the real-world by allowing pilots and ground operators to see synthetic threats in real-time, outdoors and, critically, in high-speed environments.  By blending augmented reality and artificial intelligence and using both the indoor AND outdoor space around us as a medium, Red 6 has redefined the limits of how the world will experience, share, and interact with its information. This solution to a significant and compelling military use case provides the right pathway to a much broader, ubiquitous AR future and with it, the inevitable consumer market.
