After initially winning a nationwide competition and being awarded a contract to serve as the platform for 3D models and VR content through the United States Air Force’s AFWERX program, EON Reality is happy to announce the Air Force has expanded its VR and AR use of EON-XR after the initial success.
Upon seeing the capabilities of EON-XR — particularly its hardware-agnostic content creation and distribution functionalities — the Air Force began using EON Reality’s flagship service as its primary method of importing and sharing detailed CAD files to use for VR and AR maintenance and training purposes. This helped to grow the two organizations’ relationship from a singular experimental pilot to an ongoing partnership with the potential of even further expansion.
The partnership has also served as an excellent use case for the convenience and effectiveness of EON-XR, exemplifying how a new user can create and share instructional lessons and detailed models for complex procedures in a very short amount of time. Much like EON-XR’s existing success among academic institutions and private businesses around the world, a valuable government entity such as the Air Force is able to improve its VR and AR efficiency through the service’s longstanding “EASI” motto of being Effortless, Accessible, Self-Service, and Interconnected.
“Working with a branch of the military like this has been nothing short of an absolute honor. I am thrilled that EON Reality is able to help the people who serve our country in our own unique way, and I am certain that EON-XR can be a game-changer for many types of military personnel. I look forward to our ongoing work together and hope to be able to expand this alliance even further in the future.”Mats JohanssonPresident of EON Reality
