Airbus—a pioneer in aerospace technology and leading designer and manufacturer of commercial and military aircraft, satellites, and launch vehicles—has made a commitment to transform traditional industrial processes through use of mixed reality. The company has partnered with Microsoft to use Azure mixed reality and HoloLens 2 as a way to accelerate the design and manufacture of aircraft, while increasing safety and functionality and ensuring professional development opportunities for employees. Intelligent services like Azure Remote Rendering are changing the way complex ideas are communicated, and the ability to build multi-user, spatially aware applications with Azure Spatial Anchors promotes greater collaboration while increasing quality, safety, and security. Airbus is using Azure mixed reality to unlock the full potential of HoloLens 2 and, as a result, expects to reduce design validation time by 80 percent and accelerate complex tasks during assembly by 30 percent.
