The VR/AR Association’s new defence and intelligence committee was formed to connect stakeholders in government, military and industry with experts in immersive technology.

It aims to set standards for expectations and implementation of the technology as governments, including those of the US and UK, move forward with investment and wide-scale adoption.

The committee will also provide insights and research to complement and support efforts for increasing the utilisation of immersive technologies.
