BREMERTON, Wash. -- The United States Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command’s Industrial Operations Transformation Office, PSNS & IMF, Norfolk Naval Shipyard and Carrier Team One have partnered with BILT Incorporated, creator of the 3D interactive BILT app, to take ship maintenance and fleet readiness to the next level.

Rather than flat, two-dimensional drawings and graphics, end-users can now see schematics and models on the app in 3D, which allows them to manipulate visual tools. Employees can rotate images 360 degrees as well as enlarge and minimize as needed. This added flexibility enables those working on the equipment to zero in on specific areas at specific angles to ensure clear understanding of the task at hand. An added benefit is that a simple tap of the graphic pops up more detailed information about the particular part or tool.

The initiative falls under the umbrella of the command’s Mobile Workforce Enablement team, a group that works to enable users to have the right information when and where they need it. The BILT app ties in with MWE’s mission since it’s mobile and can be used shipboard, around the docks and in the shops.
