💥Dynepic’s MOTAR Platform = US Air Force Requirement!!! 🍾🥂💥

IT’S OFFICIAL!!! 

We’re incredibly excited and humbled to share that AETC leaders have unanimously voted to validate MOTAR as an AETC requirement, marking it as a key function of Force Development for all future Airmen. Effective immediately, AETC wings will get both the new training models with VR and AI, and the solutions for tracking progress. 

“It’s a huge milestone as a small business to get a sole-source Phase III,” said Co-Founder and CEO, Krissa Watry. “To now have the MOTAR platform cemented by name as a USAF requirement is a rare occurrence and something we’re very proud of.” 

Christina Padron, Director of Partnerships and Growth, added, “This sets MOTAR on the path to become a USAF Program of Record, and it isn’t just about us - MOTAR supports an entire ecosystem of the most cutting edge and powerful training technologies from some of the most innovative companies in the industry, which are now accessible for all trainers and students across the USAF.”

While there will certainly be a time for celebration at our upcoming MOTAR Expo, this news only energizes our team to continue #InventingTheFuture alongside our industry and USAF partners.

Dynepic, Inc. to Host Major Showcase at First Annual MOTAR Expo

RENO, NV --- Dynepic, Inc. is raising the curtain for an exclusive, two-day event to showcase some of the most powerful, immersive training and learning technologies on the planet. 

The much-anticipated MOTAR Expo 2021 will take place Wednesday, Nov. 3, and Thursday, Nov. 4, at Kelly Field, Joint Base San Antonio, Texas. The center of the event will be a behind-the-scenes look at Dynepic's secure DX platform, white-labeled for the United States Air Force as MOTAR (Member. Operations. Training. Analytics. Reports). The MOTAR platform is a cloud-native, secure digital infrastructure that integrates, delivers, and reports on third-party training content, enabling various AR/VR/XR, AI, video, and other training applications to be seamlessly connected into courses and delivered from a single platform.  Demos from Dynepic’s rich ecosystem of 3rd-party vendor technologies and training tools will also be available. 

Dynepic, along with the United States Air Force AETC/A9 Det 23 T3 and AFLCMC WNS, will host guests and government employees who are passionate about leveraging immersive technology to improve training readiness for USAF aircrews and warfighters.

“MOTAR brings the best innovative training technologies, including augmented/virtual reality and artificial intelligence (AR/VR/AI), directly to USAF course managers, instructors, and students, and the MOTAR Expo offers an opportunity to experience many of them first-hand,” said Dynepic’s Director of Partnerships and Growth, Christina Padron. “If you want to be part of this critical evolution, you need to be connected to MOTAR.” 

On Thursday, MOTAR Expo activities will include:

  • Demos of USAF’s premier training ecosystem, powered by Dynepic’s MOTAR platform, including a deep dive on MOTAR’s secure infrastructure, Hub, and Learning Management System.
  • Networking with Dynepic’s elite team and 20+ ecosystem vendors, including those from the Combat Ready Aviators AFWERX Challenge.
  • Opportunity to learn more about how MOTAR vendors are rapidly advancing critical immersive training technologies.
  • ...And much more! 

Events on Wednesday are invite-only as much of this day will be dedicated to the final presentations and demos from the Combat Ready Aviators AFWERX Challenge.

The MOTAR Expo comes on the heels of some exciting news for Dynepic, Inc., including being chosen over 201 other companies as one of seven winners in the US Air Force's AFWERX Accelerating Pilots to Combat-Ready Aviators Challenge. The company was also recently awarded a $6.6M Phase III SBIR Contract to further expand MOTAR within the USAF enterprise.

For tickets, please register here by Oct. 15.

US Air Force Awards Dynepic $6.6m Phase III Contract to Power Training Data Hub & Ecosystem

Multi-year commitment brings significant impact and savings to USAF content creators, trainers & students!


RENO, NV -- Dynepic Inc. has won again, and it’s B I G !!! 

“We’re successfully powering a holistic ecosystem for immersive training and inventing the future with the USAF and the MOTAR platform,” said co-founder and CEO Krissa Watry. 

The Reno, Nevada tech company will leverage the $6.6M sole-source Phase III Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract to bring the power of Dynepic’s secure digital infrastructure and open ecosystem, white-labeled as MOTAR (Member. Operations. Training. Analytics. Reports), to the United States Air Force (USAF) enterprise. The result will ensure students get the best training possible to fit their learning preferences before moving to the field, and instructors can be confident in skills of each individual. 

“It will always be an honor to work with our USAF partners, and we’re particularly excited about the deep impact we’ll be able to have with this effort,” Watry said.  “Combined with the incredible technologies activated on MOTAR from our ecosystem vendors, we have limitless potential.

As part of this Phase III contract, the USAF’s Maintenance Training Next (MxNext) program leveraged Dynepic’s MOTAR Platform to deliver the Crew Chief Fundamentals Course. Within this course, four individual 3rd-party vendors quickly activated their augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) applications to seamlessly deliver a variety of training content directly to Airmen across devices. While students trained, their performance metrics passed securely in real-time to live learning MOTAR dashboards where instructors, managers, and leadership could track their progress. The Airmen in this MxNext course completed their training in about half the time relative to traditional training methods, with no significant performance differences – ultimately training faster and improving readiness. 

“The team training on MOTAR was able to get the same results in a more efficient and effective way than they were used to,” Watry said. “The students reported that training felt more engaging, realistic, and fun, and the trainers were able to get real-time feedback on how each of them was doing throughout the training.” 

Under this Phase III effort, Dynepic has already begun to build out capabilities that will greatly enhance the MOTAR experience for both vendors and users. New feature additions in the coming months will help instructors manage course versioning, question banks, and course schedule and management. 

The expansion will also include:

  • A central content management system with permission-based sharing for lessons, 3D models, map packs, and more;
  • Improve platform collaboration and content discovery through communities and vendor showcase pages; 
  • Plug-ins and APIs for integration with legacy Learning Management Systems; 
  • Expand the Hub (previously MOTAR’s App Store) to support various types of vendor technology (AR, VR, AI, etc.) and application distribution requirements; and 
  • Achieve a MOTAR Authority to Operate (ATO) in 2022 for IL4 operations.

The contract also represents a unique collaboration between the USAF Air Education Training Command (AETC)’s Tech Training Transformation (T3) team who awarded the contract, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Simulators Division Innovation Cell, and additional USAF units across the Major Commands. Dynepic has been working closely with these groups to onboard selected vendors with technologies relevant to their missions; most recently, this included activating and further integrating 15 different vendors and XR training technologies on the MOTAR platform as part of Dynepic’s Accelerating Pilots to Combat Ready Aviators AFWERX Challenge win.
