August 16th 2017 – Arlington, Virginia – APS Demonstrated ARgos Augmented Reality Applications

Applied Physical Sciences demonstrated its ARgos augmented reality applications for ship construction activities during the Phase I demonstration for the ARgos NSRP project. These applications use an innovative markerless registration approach to automatically associate items from a CAD model with the corresponding items in the real world. The initial applications demonstrated in ARgos Phase I provide a user-friendly, intuitive way for shipboard installers to find and identify cable hangers in partially-built spaces with no manual measurement or paper diagrams required.  Additional APS-developed AR applications to interactively visualize cable routes and enter location-aware annotations were demonstrated by ARgos teammates General Dynamics Electric Boat and Bath Iron Works.

APS develops Augmented Reality (AR) applications for ship construction and maintenance activities that dramatically reduce the cost, time, and error rate associated with locating and measuring.  Its focus is on rapidly developing customized AR applications tailored for specific shipboard tasks.
