A ground-breaking mixed reality training solution, developed by KBR in collaboration with Microsoft, has won a prestigious UK industry award for innovation.

For 12 months, KBR's Government Solutions EMEA Advisory team has been working to create the world's first mixed reality solution for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) medical training for the Defence Medical Services section of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), with help from Microsoft.

The project won the 'Visionary Award for Protecting Society and Saving Lives' at the 16th Institute of Engineering and Technology Innovation Awards, which recognize the people, projects, and organizations transforming our world for the better through engineering and technology.

The project utilizes Microsoft's HoloLens 2 device, the most advanced mixed reality wearable device on the market, to create an innovative and experiential learning experience, while improving the retention of knowledge and skills. The collaborative team created a unique instructor led solution that gives medical practitioners an immersive and highly realistic training scenario where they can accurately replicate the decontamination, diagnosis, triage and stabilization of a patient exposed to a chemical agent.

"This project epitomises KBR's vision to design and deliver the future, enhancing our capability in the human performance and training transformation market," said Andrew Barrie, President, Government Solutions – EMEA.

"We pride ourselves on our government and cross industry experience – with a commitment to developing innovative and sustainable solutions that adapt as our clients' needs change."

KBR was awarded the contract by the UK MOD to design and run a pilot in April 2019 to prove the technology. Following approval and funding in September 2019, full development of a complete augmented reality training simulation tool using agile software development was completed.
