Lockheed Martin has also experienced drastic improvements in time tasks and training since using Scope AR software. His Space Division reports that the WorkLink app has reduced the time it takes to interpret spacecraft design work by more than 95%. Our team, including our interns, can use AR to quickly and accurately create and use manufacturing instructions. " said Shelley Peterson, an emerging technology leader at Lockheed Martin.
The converged apps will be available for iOS, Android and Windows, including HoloLens, over the next few weeks, and in the meantime, the app will also be featured at their AWE booth this week
