Companies such as BAE Systems, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries are pushing forward with implementing the Red 6 augmented reality system onto jet trainers, despite the absence of formal interest from customer air forces so far.

Lockheed Martin, Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and Red 6 have begun work to implement the Advanced Tactical Augmented Reality System (ATARS) into the T-50 supersonic jet trainer and light attack fighter.

In March, the three companies announced a partnership to target delivery of advanced training and combat aircraft capabilities.

Under the new phase of the collaboration, the partners will begin developing engineering solutions and a technology roadmap to establish an implementation path for ATARS into the jet.

Initial integration includes a T-50 demonstrator and Red 6 ATARS technology that is electronically networked with Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D software simulation suite.
