HTX Labs receives USAF’s SBIR Phase I award
HTX Labs has received a SBIR Phase I contract from the US Air Force for virtual reality training, the company announced on 23 April.
The contract provides funding for the continued development of training simulations built on HTX Labs' Empact virtual reality platform that are designed to enhance understanding, retention and expertise of military procedures and protocols.
The company's advanced, immersive technology leverages artificial intelligence, advanced biometrics and analytics to systematically and objectively measure the effectiveness of a training programme by comparing an aggregate of participants or a single participant against an expert or a group of experts performing the exact same set of tasks.
Through immersive, hands-on simulations, students learn the necessary skills to perform their job in a safe and controlled environment that allows them to experience life-like scenarios, such as the ability to respond and initiate emergency procedures under the distress of various hazardous conditions that might take place in a Beechcraft T-6A cockpit.
