A Case Study in Transformation

To illustrate the impact of AR in action, let’s explore Skytek’s collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA)


Implement AR for efficient sensor placement on spacecraft like JUICE and SMILE. This involved guiding engineers through precise sensor positioning, validating placements, recording data, and generating reports using AR images. Additionally, integrating AR for remote communication with video experts and combining datasets for comprehensive analysis was crucial.


Skytek seamlessly integrated AR into both ISS and AIT activities. The AR system facilitated the placement of numerous test sensors on spacecraft panels before installation. Engineers were guided through intuitive AR interfaces, ensuring precise positioning and validation of sensor placements. The integration of AR for remote communication allowed real-time collaboration with video experts during critical activities. Furthermore, datasets from different sources were harmoniously combined for comprehensive analysis. Automated reporting systems were also implemented, incorporating updated CAD STEP models for efficient documentation.
