Building 3 auditorium -11:00 AM
For the past 3 years, the Augmented/Virtual Reality
(AR/VR) Pilot Program Initiative has been developing
cutting edge AR/VR concept applications for applying
mixed reality technologies to science and engineering at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).
A team of software developers, scientists, and engineers have developed over 15 concept
applications. Over the last year, the team has been successful at transitioning from a purely
research effort to an applied development effort with customers such as Restore L and WFIRST.
In this talk, we will discuss current efforts as well as plans for how we are planning to use AR
and VR at GSFC in the future.
Thomas G. Grubb is the AR/VR Product Development Lead for a team of software developers,
scientists, and engineers developing cutting edge AR/VR applications for applying it to science
and engineering at GSFC. Thomas has been the PI on multiple research projects for the past 3
years and is helping find ways to integrate this technology into products that will give new depth
to science data visualization, increase safety and efficiency of our personnel and assets when
working around flight hardware, and other cool applications that are just now being defined.
