Develop HoloLens apps for Defense...

NAVAL GROUP – Europe's leading military naval contractor – chose  Holoforge Interactive to develop HoloLens apps optimizing  maintenance teams and  boilermakers work onsite.

Our holographic solution offers a realistic installation and reparation case toward pipe fittings on deck of FREMM frigates.

 

Specific context : Complex interventions on board ships

 

  • Narrow work areas where it is difficult to operate
  • Complex pipe combination and schemes
  • Documentation which is time-consuming to learn and error-prone, all the more for new employees
  • Need to anticipate all cross field bottlenecks and constraints

Our solution let user :
 

  • Visualize and repair part of a pipe system with or without physical support
  • Operate hands free
  • Get a holographic tool box to assist him safely and accurately while operating
  • Avoid assembly drawings, calculations, complex measurements (User can preview directly on the real installation what he has to repair or replace)
  • Display the location of the pipe clamps designed by the engineering department
  • Ajust the positioning of the guide rails and the clamps supporting the pipes according to real time environment recognition based holograms
  • Check the process step by step with the support of check lists and HoloLens permanent monitoring
  • Add notes and pictures (data transmission to the engineering dpt and automatic data logging)

Results

 

  • The clamps are installed properly with no doubt possible
  • Time saved and simplicity
  • No isolation as opposed to virtual reality, no loss of all points of reference
  • Real operation with neither risk nor challenge
  • User experience accessibility designed to be fluid and effortless
  • The user feels confident
  • Capitalisation of the experience in order to optimize the install process (Direct feedback of all bug fixing to the engineering department through pictures, notes, measures...)
