February 4, 2021 – ThirdEye, a provider of augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) enterprise solutions, has recently announced the deployment of its X2 MR Smart Glasses to the United States Army Pacific (USARPAC). The remote training supports the Theater Army mission command functions and will help to reduce physical travel amid COVID-19, the company stated.
The X2 Smart Glasses, along with the ThirdEye MDM Workspace custom remote assistance software, are being used by USARPAC with real time environment, in locations throughout the Hawaiian Islands, Alaska, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Guam. The software includes a suite of applications to assist the Army PAC, including RemoteEye, which allows remotely located senior technicians to see a frontline technicians’ field of view.
‘’Having the X2 MR Smart Glasses deployed in these locations is extremely helpful, and more important, the Army’s mission at hand can continue without downtime,’’ said John LaPlume and Cary Mashiba, Contract Project Manager Leads with USARPAC. “ThirdEye’s focus on creating a secure and reliable technology allows us to confidently share and collaborate on mission-critical tasks via the X2 MR Smart Glasses.”
The software on the glasses can also be used to project live digital information, such as schematics, diagrams, instructions, and mission-critical documents into the user’s field of view. Field technicians can collaborate with remote subject matter experts in real time, anywhere in the world, hands-free. As a result, military equipment can be analyzed and maintained with 3D instructions overlaid onto machinery.
ThirdEye offers a complete AR/MR software ecosystem, including accessories as well as software. Some accessories include thermal sensors, prescription inserts, and frontline connectivity packages where glasses are bundled with wireless LTE 4G hotspots.
“Partnering with branches of the United States military is an incredible proof-point for ThirdEye, as the military only adopts new technology when it is confident that the technology not only works but also solves an immediate need,” said Nick Cherukuri, CEO and founder of ThirdEye. “Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, USARPAC was forced to cut down on travel, which is something felt by many industries right now. ThirdEye’s hands-free AR solution eliminates much of the need for travel and allows for remote collaboration – all while being adaptable to all areas of the enterprise, including the U.S. military.”
