Abstract

This paper introduces an Augmented Reality (AR) system for the space industry. As part of the main maintenance use case of the EdcAR project, the objective is to verify if Augmented Reality could be an eligible technology and productive tool in the aerospace industry. With this aim, an Augmented Reality Visualisation solution, EdcAR, is designed, implemented and evaluated with a maintenance use case of the ISS. The use case was the Centralized Cabin Filter Replacement procedure. The EdcAR system was first developed for AR-glasses, mobile phones, and tablets. Subsequent versions were designed for the Microsoft Hololens Mixed reality platform. The upgrade was possible as the EdcAR system is designed and implemented based on a modular architecture. Moreover, content creation and visualization are based on the main principles of the IEEE Draft Standard for an Augmented Reality Learning Experience Mode (ARLEM). The evaluation of the two EdcAR system versions have been performed in the ISS-Columbus training center located in the ESA's European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne, Germany. The test team included an experienced astronaut.
