For decades, GKN Aerospace have aimed at inspiring and industrializing the aerospace industry by combining engineering excellence and technological leadership. The company globally employs 18,000 people in 15 different countries and improves the performance of more than 100,000 flights every day.
In order to maintain a leading position in the industry regarding technological development, GKN Aerospace emphasizes a close relationship with universities, knowledge institutions, suppliers, and customers.
However, even though GKN Aerospace has a lot of young visitors at the production facilities, it can sometimes be challenging for the younger crowd, aged 12-18, to fully understand the GKN Aerospace business just by listening to presentations and walking around in the factories. So in order to simplify and streamline the experience of younger visitors, GKN Aerospace wanted to create a full virtual experience to allow visitors to explore how the GKN Aerospace products work in action.
Thus, the purpose of this project was to provide an exciting virtual reality experience which would explain the core of the GKN Aerospace universe, while embracing an interactive approach in order to engage –and spark the interest of young aspiring engineers.
SynergyXR has helped us to shape a product that exceeded all expectations. The SynergyXR team had really succeeded in capturing our ideas which at the time were far from concrete and turned them into something amazing
