MindWorks Creates New Naval Augmented Reality App

Subsea Craft is a young company created by some of the most experienced Special Forces personnel in the world. They have designed and are building a DDU (or diver delivery unit); a craft that will travel at 30 knots on the surface and yet take eight special forces personnel deep under water to their target.

The Brief

DSEI is the leading defence industry show in the UK. With the natural delays in any major project, the craft sadly wouldn’t make it to the show but Subsea Craft still needed to attend and demonstrate the craft.

The Actions

We used our previous Augmented Reality experience to develop an iPad-based app that could demonstrate every single aspect of the craft’s operation, reveal the inside and show the craft submerging from an exterior and diver’s perspective. 

What Happened

The show was a great success, despite there being no craft present. Since then, the app has been used when talking to Special Forces around the world.
