PARIS — May 25, 2022 – The trusted Manifest digital-augmentation platform from Taqtile, a leader in augmented reality (AR) based work-instruction solutions, continues to enhance the preventative maintenance, repair, training, and inspection procedures of defense organizations around the globe. Through deployment of the Manifest platform for multiple armed forces – the U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S Air Force, New Zealand Army, Royal Australian Navy – Taqtile is being relied upon as a key component of modernization and digitization strategies in the defense industry.
“Modernization isn’t only about helicopters and drones and capital platforms.

Learn about specific examples of how Manifest has been successfully deployed with defense customers, and how the technology dramatically reduces repair times and simultaneously improves operational readiness. Studies conducted for a recent whitepaper found a 36-100% decrease in errors when tested in defense use cases.
AMC Command Chief, Shelina Frey, Chief Master Sgt., U.S. Air Force, says of the Manifest AR-enabled platform, “This is how today’s Airmen are learning. This is a prime example of how innovation will help our Airmen meet their true potential.”
Manifest enables users to complete operational procedures more consistently and accurately by decreasing maintenance crew cognitive load and stress. Personnel responsible for Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) and the preventative maintenance inspection procedures (PMCS: Preventative Maintenance Checks and Services; PMI: Preventative Maintenance Inspections) experience exceptional benefits from the Manifest platform. New service members can also be onboarded and trained faster and more efficiently, improving overall operational readiness.
Manifest was designed with high levels of security so it can be deployed within defense and governmental organizations. Secure authentication, encrypted file systems and data transmissions, together with Taqtile’s top-of-the-line security practices for development and code review, deliver best-in-class compliance.
“Modernization of defense procedures and systems is a priority, one that the Manifest platform is uniquely designed to support,” said Dirck Schou, CEO, Taqtile. “Manifest is an elegant, complete solution that addresses key defense concerns including security, connectivity, automation of resolution procedures, and providing AR-enhanced knowledge to deskless personnel.”
