Dynepic Awarded $3.6M Contract Increase to ‘Level Up’ and Expand MOTAR

Benefits for ecosystem users include enhanced security evaluation, more time and cost savings 

RENO, NV --- The United States Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command (AETC) has awarded Dynepic® a ~$3.6M increase to its current contract to support the expansion of its secure DX platform, white-labeled for the US Air Force as MOTAR (Member-Operations-Training-Analytics-Reports). The modification increases the total contract value to over $10M and is an exciting proof point to the value and innovation Dynepic’s platform has brought to the USAF since it became a requirement last year. 

“At Dynepic one of our goals is to always be working to ‘Level Up,’ and that’s exactly what this contract modification will do for MOTAR,” said Co-Founder and CEO Krissa Watry. “This increase will help support Dynepic and its vendor ecosystem to continue bringing US Airmen the best in modern training technologies and experiences and help support the acceleration of Authority to Operate (ATO) certification for vendor technologies integrated with MOTAR.”

The first key piece of the MOTAR expansion is the creation of a Software Factory, which will save significant time and money as well as ensure the deepest level of security for every app and training tool in the MOTAR ecosystem. 

“The MOTAR Software Factory will automate the activities in the development, build, test, release, and deliver phases and support multi-tenancy, helping ecosystem vendors deliver cutting edge training to Airman faster and more securely using a modern DevSecOps pipeline,” explained Brian Moyer, Dynepic’s Director of Cyber Security. “By implementing a Software Factory, MOTAR will improve software product consistency and quality; shorten time to market, increase productivity for applications within the MOTAR ecosystem, and simplify governance. Additionally, applications will be able to leverage the MOTAR ATO (estimated completion of June 2022) to obtain a Certificate to Field (CtF), which will greatly reduce the approval time required to get their application fielded in a production environment.”

The second piece of the expansion is the new Airman Learning Record that will be available within MOTAR, designed as a one-stop-shop for capturing and reporting an Airman’s training across their career. The Airman Learning Record will bridge and aggregate their training data from authoritative sources active in the USAF and is the first end-to-end MVP integration of the ALR, MOTAR’s new mission planning capabilities, and an AI-driven Competency Management. This effort will allow Dynepic to expand the AI agnostic plug-in framework on the platform and pilot an ecosystem approach to AI with Discovery Machine®, Inc. blazing the trail. 

“MOTAR is critical to the creation of a unified training system that will allow the Department of the Air Force (DAF) to modernize existing training and be future-ready as emerging technologies come online,” shared MOTAR program manager SMSgt Powell Crider. “Using MOTAR to link together disparate systems and present information in a modern, adaptable interface, allows us to deliver pertinent training and operation data with the analytics and features required for the future Air Force.”

If you’d like to learn more about MOTAR, Dynepic will be onsite at the upcoming Logistics Officer Association (LOA) Symposium in Salt Lake City, UT. March 15-18. Swing through to experience a demo and learn more at booth #425! 

 

Dynepic, Inc. to Host ‘MOTAR Zone’ at Logistics Officer Association Symposium 

 

 

The showcase will include ecosystem vendors, demos, 1:1 learning sessions, and expert panel

SALT LAKE CITY, UT --- Dynepic, Inc. is excited to be a part of the first-ever ‘MOTAR Zone’ at this year’s Logistics Officer Association (LOA) Symposium March 15-18, giving attendees an exclusive opportunity to experience the most powerful, immersive training and learning technologies on the planet and learn how MOTAR is reducing the logistical strain on the Air Force and supporting agencies.

“We’re stoked to join LOA this year and spotlight some of the incredible vendors that power MOTAR’s rich ecosystem of 3rd-party technologies and training tools,” said Dynepic Co-Founder and CEO, Krissa Watry. “LOA is the place to be this year for anyone committed to solving challenges for and empowering those in the defense industry.” 

Dynepic’s first year at LOA is especially exciting because, together with Air Education and Training Command (AETC)/A9 Detachment 23, Dynepic has been named as this year’s recipient of the Maj Gen Marcelite Harris’s Trailblazer Award which honors industry-leading businesses that have developed innovative solutions to benefit the US Air Force. 

“In true Dynepic fashion, we’re going big for our first time at LOA, and we are so excited to lead the MOTAR Zone with our USAF partners at AETC/A9 Det 23,” shared Dynepic’s Vice President of Partnerships and Growth, Christina Padron. “Dynepic has and continues to work closely with the Air Force to realize efficiencies and ensure that the best training innovations are available to Airmen at the speed of need.”

Dynepic’s MOTAR was born from a passion for leveraging immersive technology to improve training readiness for US Air Force aircrews and warfighters. White-labeled for USAF as MOTAR (Member-Operations-Training-Analytics-Reports), the innovative 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. In 2021, MOTAR was deemed a requirement for USAF and is on track to become an official USAF Program of Record.

The ‘MOTAR Zone’ will be a first of its kind at LOA. Spearheaded by Jondavid DuVall, COO of LOA, the Zone will allow attendees to physically experience a digital ecosystem for training and operations. Attendees will see firsthand how the MOTAR ecosystem has been forged to support the warfighter, increase access to training, and improve readiness. 

“Building the MOTAR Zone into this year’s LOA Symposium was a no-brainer,” DuVall shared. “What Dynepic has done to help the US Air Force and other agencies reduce churn and increase success in training is unmatched. We think everyone should be using MOTAR!”

For those attending: 

  • Dynepic’s elite team will be onsite all week at Booth 425 - from potential new ecosystem vendors to USAF units, a Dynepic team member will be available to support your needs!  To schedule an in-person 1:1 with someone from Dynepic and receive a deep dive on MOTAR’s secure infrastructure, Hub, and Learning Content Management System, please email victoria@dynepic.com
