Taqtile, a leading provider of digital modernization and AR-enabled work-instruction technologies, will be a key highlight at the upcoming I/ITSEC conference in Orlando, Florida. The company’s flagship product, the Manifest platform, which offers augmentation for warfighters, will take center stage in various exhibits at the event, showcasing its ability to help warfighters quickly resolve equipment failures during combat.
In addition to its critical in-combat applications, Manifest also supports maintainer efforts to keep vehicles, weapons, and systems in proper working order, improving combat readiness and supporting expeditionary warfighting by enhancing the capabilities of small squads mobilizing complex equipment. The platform is also designed to train personnel on inspection procedures, equipment familiarization, and complex maintenance processes.
Manifest’s diverse capabilities will be displayed in three different booths at I/ITSEC:
3D Media (booth 3161) – Demonstrating support for MARS maintenance operations
HTC VIVE (booth 3211) – Illustrating Manifest’s use of the color passthrough capabilities of the VIVE XR Elite headset to inspect airplane landing gear
Magic Leap (booth 3171) – Showcasing inspections and processes for recovery from equipment failure on an Abrams tank
To schedule a one-on-one meeting with a Taqtile representative at I/ITSEC, interested parties are encouraged to visit the I/ITSEC Meeting Scheduler.
The Manifest platform has been continually evolving to meet the requirements of defense forces worldwide. It has gained traction with the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force, New Zealand Defense Force, Royal Australian Navy, international OEMs, systems integrators, and Allied defense forces. Taqtile is presently under contract with the Army Application Laboratory (AAL) to meet the Army’s ARMORS capability requirement. Also, in partnership with 3D Media, Manifest is being utilized in the U.S. Air Force Rapid Sustainment Office MARS program.
“Manifest is a proven solution for reducing operator errors, delivering demonstrable ROI, and facilitating the digital modernization efforts of defense forces around the world,” says Kelly Malone, Taqtile’s Chief Business Officer. “The Manifest platform enables the digital transformation of critical defense procedures and processes, positively impacting the effectiveness, adaptivity, and resiliency of our troops and the vehicles and systems they rely upon.”
Manifest operates in the cloud, at the edge, and/or offline, and can access data over various channels, including 5G. Taqtile’s Manifest is also a 5G testbed application as part of the Booz Allen Hamilton team for the U.S. Army’s 5GXR program operating at Ft. Cavazos.
The performance data from military studies illustrates the effectiveness of Manifest, with results such as USAF junior propulsion mechanics using Manifest completing 100% of 28 assigned tasks with zero errors, automotive technicians in the New Zealand Army Trade Training School experiencing 36% fewer errors compared to trainees using other training methods, and Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) evaluators using Manifest generating 53% fewer errors/discrepancies than counterparts not using Manifest.
Architected to support an increasing number of devices, including head-mounted displays (HMDs) like Magic Leap 2 and the VIVE XR Elite, as well as tablets such as the iPad, and other mobile tools, Manifest offers defense users access to step-by-step work instructions, digital manuals and guidance, animated 3D models and digital twins, detailed holograms, and other invaluable knowledge across various form factors. It can also be accessed via a browser, making it accessible to devices already in use by warfighters today.
