Technology Demonstration on Augmented Reality for Industry 4.0

This technology demonstration is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for the New England defense supply chain. For more information, please visit

Join us for a virtual presentation on the results of the demonstration pilot conducted by SphereGen/The Impact Group on the use and implementation of augmented reality in manufacturing.

Augmented Reality is the overlaying of digital content into the physical environment. Specifically, to manufacturing, this can include any type of virtual parts, data, photos, videos, and work instructions. These assets can be transposed on to a machine in the real world for easier training and troubleshooting through a device such as a phone or headset. Our engagement with CCAT is specific to HoloLens 2 which is an advanced augmented reality headset created by Microsoft. HoloLens 2 has comprehensive voice recognition, gesture recognition and is a hands-free heads-up display.

This session will be recorded and made available on-demand.

Learning Objectives

Learn how augmented reality can:
• Expedite training and onboarding
• Standardize work and procedures for employees
• Improve remote troubleshooting
• Reduce travel to physical locations with virtual tools
