Beginning an undoubtedly promising New Year, our client Longan Vision Corp. won a national research bid for a $200K contract offered by Innovation Solution Canada, funded by The Department of National Defense (DND). The contract was for their innovative efforts in providing a long-term solution that will help Canadian firefighters work in a more Head Up Hands Free mode of operation on the fire ground. Additionally, they exhibited at CES in Las Vegas in early January and became the IEEE N3XT® Star, for having a venture that has engineering-driven innovation at its core, aligning with the IEEE core purpose to foster technology, innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
We are excited to see how Longan Vision will continue to bring solutions to support firefighters through their unique use of Augmented Reality (AR) and drone technologies. Longan Vision is a company that focuses on developing smart goggles to improve safety and efficiency. Currently, they are developing the Fusion Vision System [FVS]. This is an AR Smart Visor System that can be attached to the firefighter helmet to enhance vision and information sharing abilities that allow firefighters to see through smoke, locate victims and find fire sources.
