PAR Government employs user-centric design to lead the development of 3-D visualization, full motion video viewing, and route planning through navigation based Augmented Reality (AR). Commercially available technologies allow tactical operators to achieve situational awareness using visual, audio, and haptic feedback beyond visual cues alone.
PAR Government's Augmented Reality System for Navigation (ARES-N) resulted from a contract with the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) Tactical Operations Support (TOS) office. We developed and delivered an enhanced AR solution that provides a heads-up display capability for turn-by-turn directions suited for most Android devices. The capability interfaces and translates the 2D world of ATAK into an immersive AR experience for users to navigate the world around them.
PAR Government pioneered how end-users experience full motion video (FMV) to include Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB)-compliant Key Length Value (KLV) data embedded video. This is enhanced by an AR Overlay for ATAK which takes 2D ATAK markers and adds an AR Overlay in the FMV.
