Update Reason: Tender issue

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) provide new capabilities that have the potential to significantly improve the efficiency of the preparation (e.g. Simulation, planning domain) as well as the conduction of mission operations.Pervious studies performed on the topic of AR and VR technology have focused on the main aspects of the technology itself (maturity, tracking techniques, point cloud generations, etc.) And at its applicability to human space operations. The proposed activity will instead focus on the operational use case scenarios for a range of mission types, including traditional spacecraft operations, and analyse the specific technology aspects related to the integration of AR/VR into the mainstream operational data systems (simulator, mission control system,mission planning system). It will also address the issues related to performance (real-time processing) and security of operationaldata systems.C1 : Activities in open competition limited to the-non-Large-System Integrators
