Saab to Demonstrate Interactive Holograms at 2016 Australasian Simulation Congress


Defence and security company Saab will demonstrate sophisticated mixed reality applications, including battlespace visualisation, using interactive holograms at the 2016 Australasian Simulation Congress.

For nearly 80 years, Saab has challenged perceptions and pushed the boundaries of what is possible. Mixed reality holographic systems have the power to change the way we learn, collaborate and plan. The Australasian Simulation Congress is Asia Pacific’s premier simulation conference for industry, government and academia and will be held from 26th to 29th September in Melbourne. 


A world leader in complex systems integration, simulation and training systems, Saab is one of a handful of companies world-wide who are developing transformational mixed reality applications for the world’s first untethered holographic computer - Microsoft HoloLens.


“Mixed reality is the perfect medium for learning, collaborating or visualising complex information,” said Inger Lawes, Saab Australia’s Mixed Reality Applications Program Head. “In the training environment, it allows both trainers and trainees to share a visually rich interactive experience where the real world can be overlaid with digital imagery and information in the form of holograms.”

The Microsoft HoloLens platform is a lightweight wearable computer that allows wearers to experience and interact with light-dense holograms.Saab Australia expects that the technology will be adopted much more widely than just the defence and security sector.

“This technology is transformational and we have had significant interest from a diverse range of industries keen to understand how mixed reality can add value to their businesses,” said Inger Lawes.
