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.
