The challenge

Photonis nightvision has to work in many different circumstances, such as lunar phases, weather types, locations and different incidences of light. To train soldiers in the air and land forces with nightvision requires high investments. It was not possible to train on multiple situations and locations simultaneously with Photonis' nightvision, Recreate has changed this.

 

The solution

Together with Recreate, Photonis has developed a Virtual Reality training simulation using the HTC Vive. In this training simulation the user will suddenly find himself in a dark war situation after setting up the HTC Vive. By using Leap Motion Photonis can simulate all lunar phases, locations and weather influences with a realistic image of the Nightvision. The training has several nightvision products, and it is possible to simulate what heavy light, for example from an exhibition, can do with sight.
