Helsinki, Finland – March 9, 2024 — Aechelon Technology, Inc. announced today that it is delivering Twenty-Nine (29) Varjo XR-4 Secure Edition units this month.

The milestone is the result of the strategic alliance between Aechelon and Varjo, a multi-year engineering collaboration supporting the U.S. Government. Both teams equipped during 2023 co-development labs at their respective headquarters to ensure that future products achieved together the highest levels of performance prior to the XR-4 full-volume production release for the U.S. Government and Allied nations in the most stringent secure applications.

As part of this press release, Aechelon also published an unclassified commercial version video showcasing their rock-solid Mixed Reality integration with Varjo XR-4 Secure edition while running on a motion platform supplied by BRUNNER Elektronik AG. It features the first XR-4 Secure Edition and the highest-fidelity worldwide commercial databases running smoothly.

The video was naturally downsampled and downrated to 60Hz for capture and publication. Still, it provides insight into what the pilots experienced in the originally smooth immersive foveated rendering of approximately 4Kx4K(*) per eye (twice the number of pixels than 4Kx2K) seamlessly fused with 20 MPixel per eye pass-through cameras at 90fps while flying unrestricted over extreme densities of terrain and 3d features on Aechelon’s in-service worldwide commercial database.
