ATG Europe BV is proud to announce that it has been awarded, as the leading member of a Consortium with ISISpace, located in the Netherlands; a contract for the development of a Virtual Reality training tool aimed at the training of generic mechanical assembly and integration processes. 

For a 9 months duration, the ATG led consortium will develop the working prototype of a Virtual Reality powered training tool, whose aim is to carry out the CubeSat’s industry requirements for a better knowledge retention and ultimately, a more effective knowledge transfer to the assembly and integration process teams.
