Supacat introduces Mixed Reality at DSEI


Supacat, the renowned defence vehicle manufacturer, is excited to announce its collaboration at DSEI, with Kognitiv Spark, a leading technology company specialising in secure and reliable applications of Mixed Reality for remote operators. Together, we are bringing RemoteSpark™ to DSEI 2023, the world’s leading defence and security event.

At the event, we will be hosting several demonstration sessions of RemoteSpark to showcase its innovative features. This cutting-edge technology empowers soldiers with the ability to remotely access 2D and 3D holographic assets, thereby enhancing their operational efficiency and independence. With RemoteSpark, soldiers can visualise complex information in real-time and make informed decisions while operating in remote locations. The technology enables seamless communication over a low bandwidth setting between operators and remote experts, ensuring faster and more effective problem resolution.

Yash Katare, Supacat Senior Autonomous Systems Engineer, comments: “We are thrilled to present Kognitiv Spark’s technology at DSEI, which will demonstrate how Mixed Reality (MR) technology can be practically used for remote vehicle support. This innovative technology will showcase the practical application of Mixed Reality, and demonstrate its effectiveness in real-world scenarios. Our demonstration will specifically focus on showcasing the replacement of the master cylinder in the braking system of the HMT platform, providing a comprehensive and detailed overview of the process. We are confident that this demonstration will highlight the immense potential of MR technology in enhancing remote support capabilities.”

Duncan McSporran, British Army Veteran, Co-Founder, COO, and VP of Defence at Kognitiv Spark, states: “It is great to be working with Supacat at DSEI to demonstrate Mixed Reality support at reach using RemoteSpark. There is a significant convergence between our two teams that are working to bring highly innovative capabilities into the defence market. Not only does that vision cover the ability to support soldiers and technicians working on Supacat platforms at the Defence Edge, but profoundly also demonstrates the ability to enhance operational tempo through timely support at the point of need.”

We are proud to bring this innovative technology to DSEI 2023 and demonstrate its potential to revolutionise military efficiencies.

As always, Supacat remain committed to providing world-class solutions that enhance the safety and security of our armed forces.
