In this edition of the Simulation & Training Speaker Series, we explore exciting applications of extended reality technology in defense, government, and cybersecurity. Learn how augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and virtual reality (VR) help teams and individuals complete tasks faster, reduce errors, improve knowledge retention, and save lives.
This event will highlight the diverse areas where AR, MR and VR are making a significant impact, including:
- Maintenance and on-the-job training
- Cybersecurity risks and operations
- First responder training
