Joint Ventures


Over the next several years, federal agencies will need to master an entirely new world – the Metaverse. Fueled by advances in artificial intelligence, 5G, and miniaturization, extended reality (XR) technologies, including Virtual and Augmented Reality (AR / VR), are poised to become more powerful and more commonplace across the federal government. In today’s complex, digital-first world, XR will redefine how government trains its warfighters and workforce, delivers services to customers, and operates remotely. XR is helping federal agencies reimagine how they can operate while making data more accessible and digestible.

Most in government already recognize the need for action when it comes to integrating XR and expand the applications for XR over time:
