In 2012 in the article "Optical Standards: US optics standards need change" that appeared in the December issue of Laser Focus World" by David Aiken the writer states that "US organizations are donating their expertise not only to develop a new set of national optics standards but to review and ballot ISO standards as well, ensuring that the US optics industry maintains its seat at the international table."
In an article from 2017 EFSTRATIOS KEHAYAS, GOOCH & HOUSEGO in Euro-Photonics magazine.
"Photonics is rapidly transforming into an enabling space technology with potential to cross-fertilize multiple markets in the space domain. Among them: navigation, remote sensing, and telecommunications, as well as ground-breaking scientific and planetary exploration missions. Because of advantages related to bandwidth, mass, power consumption, beam size and immunity to electromagnetic interference, photonic subsystems are now being considered in navigation satellite systems, Earth observation satellites, low Earth orbit (LEO) constellations and within telecom satellite payloads."
It is no surprise that the Military is using AR-VR for different purposes. According to the article "Virtual Reality in Military by Nadia Kovach ", it is used in Training since "about 1 in 20 soldiers deaths happen during training"
