Right Hemisphere has won the top slot in the “up and coming” category in the US Military Training Technology magazine’s annual awards for technology contributions to the military training community — for the third year running.
Based in Auckland and Silicon Valley, Right Hemisphere develops product graphics management (PGM) software.
The company uses technology that makes 3D data light-weight enough to be easily distributed, he says.
“Our technology specialises in creating 2D and 3D materials, published automatically from engineering data,” he says.“It’s like using computer-game technology to help people learn — whether it is fixing a car, assembling a table or diagnosing a problem on a washing machine.”
Although the military is not the company’s main market it does represent a significant part of it, says Thomas. And, while US military organisations are the biggest purchasers within the market segment, the New Zealand military also uses Right Hemisphere’s technology.
