Envision Develops Mixed Reality for US Army

Army demonstrates power of mixed-reality technology for generator repairs.


Envision helps the Army demonstrate how mixed-reality technology could revolutionize equipment maintenance and training.

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD., July 21, 2023 – Envision Innovative Solutions, Inc., a provider of custom mixed reality technology solutions and SETA support, is helping the Army realize the benefits of leveraging mixed reality, holographic computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) into a comprehensive solution that demonstrates how holographic instruction and predictive maintenance can enhance the operator, maintainer, or trainee’s experience in working with Army generators.

The effort is part of a contract between Envision and the US Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center.

Envision’s approach keeps costs down by leveraging commercially available electronic equipment, utilizing existing maintenance guidance/data, and using AI and ML to prioritize troubleshooting tips. If the capability is fielded to the soldier, it will enable access to ultra-realistic holographic 3D models and animation, rich multi-media content, and useful predictive data—all overlaid through the user’s wearable mixed reality headset. This eliminates any confusion between textual operating procedures and the user—a significant improvement over the existing method of obtaining maintenance procedure instruction and data. The user would, instead, have all relevant information brought into their headset display while having both of their hands free to train or operate in real-time. The technology has the potential to enable increased productivity of the soldier with a minimal learning curve.

Founded in 2006, Envision has served multiple offices of the Department of Defense for over 15 years, primarily in the fields of systems engineering, complex systems integration, software engineering, and cyber security. In recent years, Envision has become a leading technology developer in the field of extended Reality (XR)—the umbrella technology branding that includes augmented, virtual, and mixed reality. Envision is a minority-owned, Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) with certification in ISO:9001 and appraisals for CMMI Development Level 3, CMMC Level 2, and NIST 800-171 compliance.
