L3 Technologies Launches Orchid Immersive Experience for Marine and Power Markets

L3 Technologies has launched the Orchid Immersive Experience (Orchid IX), the latest in display technology for accurate 3D immersion without the use of VR headsets. Orchid IX makes 3D content come alive at a near-retinal resolution in a collaborative and interactive environment.

With Orchid IX, project teams will be able to simplify the design and review Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows to increase productivity, minimize project risks and improve project outcomes. Additionally, Orchid IX enables virtual visits of high-value new build projects to facilitate finalization of designs. The technology supports realistic asset visualizations for planning and training on ships, submarines and power plants, including refurbishment, radiation worker training and decommissioning.

“As soon as we saw this cool technology, we knew we could offer several benefits to our customers seeking advanced visualization solutions in mission-critical applications,” said Rangesh Kasturi, Interim President of L3’s new Maritime International business division. “We partnered with a local innovator, Imagine 4D, to make Orchid IX available to the world.”

“Whether performing actions on complex equipment, enhancing worker knowledge, conceptualizing and designing Small Modular Reactors, planning plant outages or ship modernizations, monitoring and managing fleet operations, or decommissioning end-of-life plants, Orchid IX provides a safe and highly realistic virtual world to get it done right,” added Michael Chatlani, VP of Business Development, Power Systems and Simulation. “It’s also a great addition to visitor centers to virtually showcase high-value assets and improve the learning experience for the public.”

Orchid IX is available in three formats – the single-user Immersive Workstation, the three-user Immersive Theatre and the six-to-ten person Immersive Auditorium. The product is available for shipbuilders, architects, planners, engineers, project managers and operators of naval vessels, commercial marine vessels, power plants, and innovation and training centers, as well as other interested marine and power industry stakeholders.
