NAFTES 4th Transnational Meeting was taken place in Catania, May 2018.
A five days Training Activity (15 – 19 October 2018) based on NAFTES Advanced Firefighting Training at Hellenic Naval Education Command T.C. Palaskas Damage Control School.
A significant component of the NAFTES training is represented by the Augmented Reality applications, used to provide a more realistic simulated experience.
During the training phases, crew members will be able to visualise objects, information, animations or videos, and perform tests, directly on the Hololens lens. Hololens have been chosen as the main Augmented Reality device used in NAFTES.
The NAFTES members created images and QR codes that, when read by the Hololens, trigger them to generate the AR content of the platform.
The photo shows the Hololens in action.
On 15 November the first NAFTES Multiplier Event was held. The event aimed at informing people of the project, as well as showing the potentialities of the training platform and its applications.

The participants also tested firsthand the AR application of NAFTES.
Administrative personnel and technicians of the Greek Academic Network have visited the frigate ‘Aigaion’ and the missile boat ‘Krystallidis’ on July, 24th, 2017.
During this visit, the participants had the chance to meet the personnel of Hellenic Navy on board and inspect two different types of vessels that the NAFTES field training could take place. The participants discussed alternative training scenarios in order for the project to have a clear picture about the different needs and challenges that should be addressed by NAFTES.
