Industry Solution

Defense Operations and Sustainment

In 2018, the U.S. government accountability office (GAO) reported that the Air Force generally did not meet key aircraft availability goals. Poor record sharing and maintenance planning were cited as critical reasons affecting asset availability. An augmented reality (AR) platform with remote expert and knowledge–sharing capabilities can help the defense industry improve asset availability and reduce downtime.

Whether assistance is needed on–site for mission-ready equipment, manufacturing quality inspections, or remote field inspections, augmented reality in defense connects military personnel, contractors, and more for faster decision making, streamlined communications and efficient in-depth training from global SMEs.

Using the Onsight augmented reality solution, the defense industry can perform remote government source inspections (GSI) and connect on-site technicians with subject matter experts (SMEs) for immediate compliance and asset issue resolution. The secure on-premise knowledge base, Onsight Workspace, can enable enhanced record sharing and planning to ensure maintenance demands are met on time.

To meet the increasing demands for security and privacy in U.S. federal markets, Librestream has strengthened the security posture of its products by incorporating a module to provide the cryptographic services needed to support industry-standard secure communications protocols as well as protect data at rest residing on the devices. This Librestream Cryptographic Module has been validated by a 3rd party test lab under the U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS 140-3).
