NSSE Holographic Sandtable
National Special Security Events (NSSE) involve multiple agencies across Federal, State, Local, and military partners working together to plan operations for large-scale special events. Working with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency we held an envisioning workshop to learn more about how agencies and government personnel train and prepare for these events, and found an opportunity for the Microsoft HoloLens to improve collaboration and visualization.
As a completely standalone mixed reality headset, we found that a holographic simulation of the mission environment offered enhanced capability to visualize key locations from first and third person perspectives. The ability to share holographic experiences by remote participants reduces travel time and while increasing opportunities for collaboration.
