Lockheed Martin develops Rely3D
Lockheed Martin has launched a new version of its Rely3D visualisation and training tool for Apache AH-64 sensor system maintainers.
Rely3D leverages capabilities from commercial gaming technology to transform training into advanced visualisation modules, reducing training time by up to 60 percent.
The system reduces maintenance and repair time through its intuitive interface on the Apache Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight and Pilotage Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) and Longbow Fire Control Radar (FCR) systems by placing high fidelity, technically accurate 3D models into the hands of maintainers via a mobile tablet or laptop. The tool is also being developed for use on other rotary and fixed-wing aircraft sensors and weapons systems.
M-TADS/PNVS provides Apache helicopter pilots with long-range, precision engagement and pilotage capabilities for mission success and flight safety during day and night, and in adverse weather conditions. The Longbow FCR automatically searches, detects, locates, classifies and prioritises multiple moving targets to 16km, or stationary targets, on land, on the water, or in the air, in clear or adverse weather, and in obscured battlefields – giving commanders precision engagement capabilities.
