MOTAR Vendor Spotlight: Adaptive Immersion

MOTAR Vendor Spotlight: Adaptive Immersion

We have another great MOTAR Ecosystem Spotlight to share today, this time on Adaptive Immersion 

One read of Adaptive’s mission statement and it’s clear why they’re a perfect fit to activate on MOTAR:

MISSION: To equip our Warfighters with revolutionary innovations for performance prediction and enhancement that save lives.

To do this, the Adaptive Immersion team have become experts in building VR solutions to support those with some of the most dangerous roles in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community. To get their most recent app in the hands of Warfighters, Adaptive recently participated in the STRIKEWERX Advanced Training Concepts Challenge and were chosen to be promoted to production and now available for use at motar.io. 

“It’s been an honor to watch Adaptive Immersion take their app from concept to reality, leveraging the power of STRIKEWERX support and now activating on MOTAR,” said Christina Padron, VP of Partnerships and Growth at Dynepic. 

The company’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) VR Training System app provides an immersive experience to help train EOD operators performing triage and recovery for a downed aircraft carrying nuclear arsenal. This app provides training of a critical capability, preparing Airmen to safely execute and maintain critical skills in hazardous environments.  

"Our EOD VR Training System provides Warfighters with a safe and immersive environment to repeatedly practice the critical skills needed for the Broken Arrow mission, one of the most hazardous situations imaginable," said Phillip Mangos, Adaptive Immersion’s Founder and CEO. "The virtual training capability for this mission paves the way for enhanced readiness while mitigating risk. MOTAR has enabled us to rapidly accelerate the delivery of this critical capability into the hands of EOD operators.”

MOTAR Ecosystem Spotlight: JANUS Research

Highlighting vendors in the MOTAR Ecosystem is one of our favorite things to do at Dynepic - and today we have a stellar one for you! 

You may have heard we recently announced our new app delivery pipeline, MOTAR Fastlane, built to supercharge application deployment to the US Military seamlessly and efficiently. We also shared that the first app to leverage Fastlane came from JANUS Research Group.

Here’s the full scoop!

Earlier this year, the prototype for JANUS’ B-52 Virtual Reality (VR) training app was brought to life after the company participated in the STRIKEWERX Advanced Training Concepts Challenge. The app supports the training of the Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) and B-52 crew members in charge of aircraft communications. Based on its effectiveness, the app was quickly identified as a top way to evolve and improve Airmen training and promoted to production. 

Following closely after the Challenge, the app went through MOTAR Fastlane in just a few weeks, was deployed to MOTAR Live, and is now accessible for government use on MOTAR Live's Hub via NIPRNet at https://motar.af.mil

Using MOTAR Fastlane gave us an accelerated path to deploy our training application to IL4 and reduced the Cybersecurity burden at the same time,” shared JANUS Project Manager Kurt Anderson. “The Dynepic team worked with us through the whole process with programmatic, developer, and security support to make everything seamless. All of this meant that the JANUS team was able to focus on developing our application and working with our customer.” 

Additionally, JANUS’ B-52 app is the first to be authorized to utilize Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). While this can often take months or even years to happen, using MOTAR Fastlane made it possible in just weeks. 

“Apps approved through MOTAR Fastlane can inherit MOTAR security controls, deploy to an IL4 environment, and deliver to devices such as XR headsets in weeks instead of years,” explained Krissa Watry, CEO and Co-Founder at Dynepic. “JANUS’ app is the perfect example of why we built Fastlane to get today’s best learning applications to our USAF Airmen.” 

She added, “The opportunity with STRIKEWERX and the support of the USAF to harness the innovative power of small businesses outside the military is a huge part of what will ultimately give our Warfighters the edge in modern learning and training to win. We’re proud to work with JANUS and look forward to many more apps deploying through Fastlane.”

MOTAR Fastlane Supercharges Application Deployment to US Military

MOTAR Fastlane Supercharges Application Deployment to US Military

Dynepic’s XR-optimized pipeline supports creators to efficiently get secure, IL4 compliant apps into the hands of government users 

(RENO, NV) – Dynepic®, Inc. has officially released its new eXtended Reality (XR) optimized application delivery pipeline, MOTAR® Fastlane, and in record time has deployed the first third party application under MOTAR’s Authorization to Operate (ATO) where it's now accessible for government use on MOTAR Live’s Hub via NIPRNet at https://motar.af.mil. 

MOTAR, also known as the ‘platforms of platforms,’  is the Department of Defense’s immersive learning ecosystem that empowers users to train and operate without boundaries - online, offline, anytime, anywhere and on any device. The addition of MOTAR Fastlane has now leveled-up the process for software applications to inherit MOTAR security controls, deploy to an IL4 environment, and deliver to approved devices (even XR headsets!) in weeks instead of years. The company plans to publicly highlight its first app deployed via MOTAR Fastlane from Janus Research later this month. 

“We have an ambitious vision at Dynepic; this is just the first milestone for MOTAR Fastlane. Right now, the capability is aimed at applications made with Unity, and in the fall we’ll expand to include Kubernetes containerized services and WebXR apps,” said Co-Founder and CEO, Krissa Watry. “Every step of the way, MOTAR is evolving to support the needs of today’s Multi-Capable Airmen, and now MOTAR Fastlane can help ensure they have the immersive apps and cutting edge technology they need in a one stop shop.” 

This expansion of the MOTAR platform comes just a year after Dynepic was awarded a significant contract - the AFWERX Strategic Funding Increase (STRATFI) and is part of a four-year effort to round out the core capabilities that will make MOTAR the platform of choice to host and deliver a diverse and sustainable  immersive technology ecosystem for the USAF and broader DoD.
