Dynepic Promotes Orchun Koroglu to Chief Product Officer

Koroglu will help shape the company’s product vision, strategy, and support expansion 

Dynepic®, Inc. has named Orchun Koroglu as its Chief Product Officer. An industry leader for many years, Koroglu will continue to be involved with product design and embark on a larger role in shaping Dynepic’s product vision and strategy. 

“At Dynepic, the C-Suite positions are hard-earned and it is my complete pleasure to announce Orchun’s promotion to CPO. Orchun embodies a rare capability to immediately understand my vision and thoughtfully combine it with our customer’s requirements to ensure we build meaningful, game-changing products for the immersive training market,” said Krissa Watry, Co-Founder and CEO of Dynepic. “As we look to scale over the next year, I could think of no better person to lead Dynepic’s products into the future. Congrats, Orchun!” 

With more than two decades of experience, Koroglu has built a career including everything from designing games and apps to co-founding SurrealVR, one of the first platform-agnostic virtual reality companies (VR) that helped lay the groundwork for immersive collaboration in the Metaverse. The company was acquired by Dynepic in 2022, and Koroglu played a significant role in building its multiplayer training capabilities into Dynepic’s MOTAR platform. 

“Dynepic is on the fast track to leveling up immersive training, and I’m thrilled to play a role in making that happen,” Koroglu said. “This company has always been one to watch, but you’ll want to keep an even closer track of us over the next year.”

Dynepic wins Phase 1 SBIR with AFRL to take MOTAR to The Edge!

MOTAR levels up again to meet ACE/MCA mission requirements under AFRL’s Just-In-Time Multi-Mission Airmen / Warfighter (JITMMA/W) program.

For our United States Air Force's Multi Capable Airmen (MCA), success is not usually found in the most comfortable places. They often live, train, and fight in less-than-ideal environments where just-in-time operational training is critical, and the internet is considered a luxury. These Airmen are living at The Edge - of computing, connectivity, and combat. 

As part of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Just-in-time, Multi-Mission Airmen/Warfighters (JITMMA/W) efforts to deliver combat power in austere, forward operating locations, the organization has enlisted Dynepic to do what we do best - securely deliver an open ecosystem of mission-critical, immersive content to enable warfighters to level-up their skills anytime, anywhere and on any device, including AR and VR devices.

“This program will result in a variant of our MOTAR-In-A-Box (MIAB) that can be deployed and configured in austere and internet-challenged environments to bring a digital information overlay to the environment that leverages training and operational content from MOTAR’s Hub. This will give Airmen the tactical advantage during combat operations at The Edge,” said Krissa Watry, Dynepic’s Co-Founder and CEO. 

With MOTAR’s Authorization to Operate (ATO) allowing it to connect to military networks and transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), deploying training content has never been easier. Under this Phase I effort, Dynepic will develop a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) and technology roadmap for how MOTAR can be further enhanced to meet the strict mission requirements for JITMMA/W in combat. 

I/ITSEC ‘23: Your Guide to a #dynepic Experience!

We’re just a few days away from descending on Orlando, Florida for I/ITSEC ‘23, and on top of our annual traditions (hint: miMOSAs are back!) Dynepic has a few surprises wrapped up this year. 😃

Below is your guide to getting involved in all the goodness, as well as a quick MOTAR 101 as a refresher or for those who are new.

We can’t wait to see you there!

MOTAR 101

  • Dynepic’s MOTAR is a platform of platforms for training delivery, analysis, and reporting, and the premier leader in delivering a modular open systems approach (MOSA) and multi-vendor ecosystem to level up US Military training, readiness, and operations.
  • Dynepic does NOT create learning and training applications. Our rich ecosystem of today’s cutting-edge vendors takes care of that while we focus on providing a secure backbone infrastructure.
  • There are three key services MOTAR provides:

Hub: Discover apps, experiences, lessons, AI, models, and XR building block elements in a central location

Training: Create XR-optimized and multi-modal courses with multi-vendor training content from the Hub, track student skills, and follow along with live learning dashboards.

Studio: Leverage low-code studio tools, API’s, and SDK’s to quickly create and integrate training applications with standardized services and field with rapid ATO tools.

  • MOTAR has an Impact Level 4 (IL4) Authority to Operate (ATO) from the United States Air Force, solidifying the secure cloud infrastructure on USAF’s NIPRNet, used for up to Controlled Unclassified (CUI) training.
  • So, what’s MOTAR-In-A-Box? MOTAR-In-A-Box (MIAB) allows service members to have the same secure experience and access to MOTAR’s rich ecosystem of training content and applications regardless of connectivity, location, and timezone. No internet? No problem! With MIAB, Airmen can train wherever they are - at a moment’s notice, and even on the frontlines. forward-deployed, austere environment. This includes local, offline, and secure access to multi-modal training content, as well as the ability to locally stream augmented and virtual reality training.
