Dynepic Chosen for $1.25M Phase II SBIR to Bring XR Streaming Capabilities to Multi-Capable Airmen via its MOTAR Platform


(RENO, NV) Dynepic, Inc.® announces it has been selected by AFWERX for a Phase II SBIR contract in the amount of $1.25M focused on adapting its MOTAR® Platform to address the most pressing challenges in the Department of the Air Force (DAF). 

The Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) process by accelerating the small business experience through faster proposal to award timelines, changing the pool of potential applicants by expanding opportunities to small business and eliminating bureaucratic overhead by continually implementing process improvement changes in contract execution. The DAF began offering the Open Topic SBIR/STTR program in 2018 which expanded the range of innovations the DAF funded and this month Dynepic will start its journey to create and provide innovative capabilities that will strengthen the national defense of the United States of America.

“Today’s Warfighters and Just In Time Multi-Mission Airmen/Warfighters (JITMMA/W) are required to train and operate at ‘The Edge’; the MOTAR Platform with its mobile MOTAR-In-A-Box (MIAB) capability empowers them to do just that -  train without boundaries - online, offline, anytime, anywhere and on any device,” said Krissa Watry, Co-Founder, and CEO of Dynepic. “Specifically, this expanded capability will provide the US Air Force with the ability to stream training content from MIAB, including Augmented and Virtual Reality applications to ensure they can train and operate with skill wherever the mission takes them!”

MOTAR Digital Thread 101 - Organizing Asset Listings

Did you know there’s even MORE goodness coming with MOTAR’s Digital Thread capabilities this spring??

Since we announced this new feature, we’ve explored how it will support MOTAR users by maintaining the link (the digital thread) to original authoritative sources while also creating digital remixes, ensuring all training apps are leveraging the most current certified models. Ultimately, this capability ensures content on MOTAR is future-proof and reliable for years to come. 

To make things even more streamlined, users will also be able to organize each asset listing as a parent or child version and can even contribute assets across organizations where they have proper permissions. Additionally, users will be able to remix assets they have “Modify” permissions on. 

This new Digital Thread feature will allow users to easily track version control and choose the correct version.

Some key features of an asset’s “Digital Thread” include: 

There will be more to come, so please follow us on LinkedIn for the latest updates. If you’d like more information about MOTAR, you can always email christina@dynepic.com

Dynepic, Inc. Acquires SmartBridge CAC Login Technology to Level-Up MOTAR's Secure Single Sign-On

Dynepic. Inc announced it has acquired SmartBridge from Netrist Solutions.

In a strategic leap forward, Dynepic®, Inc. announced today that it has acquired SmartBridge from Netrist Solutions, providing US government Common Access Card (CAC) holders a seamless and secure way to authenticate into the MOTAR® platform. This is a significant move to level up the core MOTAR Platform capability in Dynepic's mission to power an open ecosystem of multi-dimensional knowledge for a better tomorrow.

Known as the secure 'platform of platforms' for training delivery, analysis, and reporting, MOTAR (Member, Operations, Training, Analytics, and Reports) currently serves as the central training and operations hub for the US Air Force, where Airmen can leverage relevant content, rapidly create immersive training lessons and combine them with existing multi-modal training in courses for students. MOTAR also provides a seamless and secure delivery of multi-dimensional applications regardless of location and timezone, all while tracking student data and records in one place.

"SmartBridge is a natural fit for the core MOTAR Platform," explained Kevin Wood, Managing Director of Netrist. "We developed SmartBridge under a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II program and are thrilled to take it from conception to commercialization in just a few years."

CAC authentication is a requirement for most Department of Defense applications. With Dynepic's newly acquired CAC login technology, MOTAR ecosystem applications will be able to more quickly activate under MOTAR Live's (https://motar.af.mil) Authority to Operate (ATO). For government users, the addition of CAC as a core MOTAR service means effortless, secure access with the opportunity to discover all the platform has to offer before choosing to fully activate.
