AREA Webinar |Augmented Reality in the Aerospace Industry

Date of Event:

Feb 18 2016



Overview of event

Many companies in the aerospace industry are studying how their counterparts in the military and automotive industries have used Augmented Reality. Some are leading with projects to deploy AR to improve their workplace performance and safety, as well as workforce productivity. In parallel, national and international agencies in aerospace, such as the European Space Agency (ESA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), are running their own pilots and studies to achieve their goals more safely and cost effectively.
From manufacturing satellites to space stations, aerospace is one of the most heavily regulated and risk-sensitive industries. Professional training for jobs in this industry requires years and, often, continues to require significant human resource overhead. In this webinar we will explore the drivers for introduction of Augmented Reality in aerospace and assess how widely these drivers apply to other heavy and regulated industries. Panelists will share their experience and opinions on topics such as:
  • What are the early or the best Augmented Reality use cases in aerospace?
  • How does Augmented Reality in aerospace resemble or differ from other industrial environments?
  • What are the biggest drivers for adoption?
  • What are the most significant barriers?
  • Will it be possible to widely deploy Augmented Reality in aerospace, and will it serve as a role model for other highly risk averse industries?


cperey Christine Perey, AREA Executive Director, will host the webinar and present a short overview about the exciting opportunities for AR in aerospace.
