Lockheed Martin Adopts 3D Visualisation

 

Extracting complex components in 3D Dec 23, 2014 -- Lockheed Martin has recently installed a Virtalis ActiveWall in the UK.  This system has been used in a major Land Vehicle Programme review.  Lockheed Martin is a leader in systems integration and high technology products and services within its core aerospace and defence markets.

Ryan Neal, a research engineer at Lockheed Martin, explained: “Our customer, the UK’s Ministry of Defence, as well as our engineers and business development people, was able to prove-out views of the 3D model through visualisation.  This meant that, instead of producing detailed performance reports over several months, we were able to view a 3D mock-up of the model using Virtalis’ Visionary Render.  In effect, words were replaced with interactive 3D pictures.”

Software Engineer Ryan Neal receives Lockheed Martin UK Award for Excellence for his work on the 3D Visualisation SuiteAs a result of the successful introduction of advanced 3D visualisation technology to an extremely tight deadline, Ryan Neal was nominated for and won the prestigious Lockheed Martin Vector Award for Innovation.  The award was presented at the Lockheed Martin UK Leadership Conference by Lockheed Martin UK Chief Executive, Stephen Ball.

Lockheed Martin has been an early adopter of Visionary Render software, which has only been commercially available since the beginning of this year.  Visionary Render allows users to access and experience a real-time, interactive and immersive VR environment created from huge 3D datasets.  Users can work alone, in small groups, or collaborate with distant colleagues in a common virtual environment to perform detailed design reviews, rehearse in-depth training tasks, validate maintenance procedures or verify assembly and manufacturing processes.

Jumping into an immersive virtual environment with the Oculus RiftLockheed Martin chose a transportable version of the ActiveWall, Virtalis’ installed, immersive, interactive 3D visualisation system.  It features a 3D DLP projector, a custom screen designed to be moved to different locations and a PC workstation to generate the active stereo images.
