Australian Navy gets ‘serious’ with game technology


Happy first day of summer, here in the northern hemisphere! Down under, the Australian Navy has embarked on a project called REFINE (Realtime Engineering Fleet training Interactive Naval Environment), with help from our partner Invenio.

From this article on PACE news:

Invenio’s REFINE solution specifically addresses naval training requirements by immersing naval cadets in a virtual representation of the ship on which they will serve.

Real-life scenarios that can be replicated include operating navigating equipment, fighting a fire, launching the ship’s boat, responding to damage control or a call to action stations.

Pretty cool concept, a sort of “PLM-connected serious game” thanks to 3DVIA Studio Pro and 3DVIA Composer...

On-demand Service Application


Happy New Year everyone!

Take a look at this article about Creation, a UK-based company that is making great use of 3DVIA Composer to bring real-time on-demand service instructions to in-service vehicles. (That’s my attempt for the New Year to link as many hyphenated words together in once sentence as possible!)

As mentioned in the article:

3DVIA Composer coupled with on-board vehicle breakage detectors provide condition reports and repair instructions that are also transmitted to base. 3D animated repair options are presented to the crew providing them the information they need to make better decisions in the event of breakage. This application of 3DVIA Composer is based on the same technical publications data that accompanies the vehicle into service to provide Z fleet operators with lower through life costs resulting from this advanced source of information.

It is...
