The US Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division (NSWC PHD), is collaborating with Moback to research and investigate specialised augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) capabilities to enhance US Navy fleet readiness, NAVSEA announced on 29 June.

To work on this project, NSWC PHD and Moback - developer of cloud-based AR computing and experience platforms - have signed a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA). The CRADA is part of an on-going Naval Innovative Science and Engineering 219 augmented reality technology research project.

The AR/VR technology will support naval training, maintenance, lifecycle engineering and product support. Its application will target long-distance support of shipboard technology and combat weapons systems as well as improved training efforts for the fleet.
