Los Angeles-based spatial operating environment developer Oblong Industries has landed a contract to supply itsÂ proprietary immersive collaboration offering acrossÂ NASA‘s aeronautics division.
Oblong Industries said Wednesday its Mezzanine platform works to connectÂ collaborators in the same room or across multiple locations and giveÂ participants data and information from multiple sources to aid the decision-making process.
“Our convictions are exactly analogous: Mezzanine was developed specifically to help innovators work together and solve problems difficult or impossible to address any other way,” saidÂ John Underkoffler, Oblong Industries’ founder and CEO.
Mezzanine will help facilitate the agency’sÂ Transformative Aeronautics Concepts ProgramÂ through support of theÂ Convergent Aeronautics Solutions project thatÂ collaboratesÂ traditional aeronautics disciplines with non-aeronauticÂ discoveries to develop new commercial aviation systems.
Oblong Industries added it will install 10 Mezzanine systems across NASA facilities such as Langley Research Center, Glenn Research Center, Armstrong Flight Research Center and Ames Research Center.
