The maturity of tools based on Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) has been increasing in the last years. Improvements in H/W and S/W allowed the technology, in short eXtended Reality (XR), to become more popular and to start being used in various fields, especially for training and operations purposes, beside traditional concurrent engineering (support to design and design review).ESA founded several research activities in the field: they showed the benefits for the space industry coming from AR applied to testing, specifically for purpose of test instrumentation, remote operation and tracking/recording of as tested configurations (test article and eventually test facilities).An analysis of the type of activities carried out during testing (preparation and execution) allowed, thus, the identification of three areas where XR tools could be deployed in the Test Centre: Operations and/or preparation of facilities (e.g. for troubleshooting when in operation) Training on the use of facilities Design and review of test set-upsThe objective of this activity is then to support the introduction of XR technology in the daily processes of the Test Centre, specifically by deploying an authoring and viewing tool for XR, by authoring an agreed set of procedures and by training operators of the Test Centre.
