Kognitiv Spark will provide its augmented reality software to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) to improve maintenance and repairs on active naval vessels, the company announced on 26 March.

The software will provide the navy with the opportunity to test drive a Mixed Reality Remote Assistant Support system.

The software - designed for use with the Microsoft HoloLens - leverages augmented reality, mixed reality and the integration of artificial intelligence to improve efficiencies with ship operations including repairs, maintenance and knowledge transfer.

 For remote maintenance, a subject-matter expert using this system can see what the HoloLens wearer sees from anywhere in the world. The expert can provide guidance using real-time voice and video, interactive 3D holograms and content, and live internet of things data. The technician can also use locally stored data to assist with routine tasks when a remote expert is not available. The holographic support is designed to improve decision making by facilitating decisive action and reducing errors by providing clarity and certainty of comprehension.
