Defence giant Lockheed Martin has installed a virtual reality system in its UK facility to help the design and review of a major land vehicle being developed.
The ActiveWall by virtual reality (VR) company Virtalis wview 3D CAD models in a more realistic physical environment and improve time to market. Ryan Neal, a research engineer at Lockheed Martin, explained: "Our customer, the UK's Ministry of Defence, as well as ourill enable engineers to 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."
