Dynepic, Inc. Wins Contract to Expand MOTAR, Create Portable MOTAR-In-A-Box


Dynepic® announced today it was awarded a significant contract to expand its secure training backbone infrastructure, MOTAR®, to operate securely across environments, even disconnected ones. With MOTAR-In-A-Box (MIAB), Airmen will be able to train wherever they are - at a moment’s notice, and even on the frontlines. 

“Over the past few years, MOTAR has successfully empowered trainers and students to engage in new ways, including within the Metaverse; MOTAR-In-A-Box will allow them to have that same secure experience and access to MOTAR’s rich ecosystem of training content and applications regardless of connectivity, location, and timezone,” said Krissa Watry, Co-Founder, and CEO of Dynepic. “MOTAR-In-A-Box is both the culmination of our longtime vision for MOTAR and just the beginning!”

Essentially, MOTAR-In-A-Box provides portable access to sync and download MOTAR-hosted third-party training content and courses, regardless of internet access. The goal of MIAB is that it can work in a semi-connected, bandwidth-challenged area, fully disconnected in a secure facility with only “sneakernet” updates, or used in a contested, 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. 

Further supporting its status as the backbone of the Military Metaverse, earlier this year Dynepic’s MOTAR earned an Impact Level 4 (IL4) Authority to Operate (ATO) from the USAF, solidifying the secure cloud infrastructure on USAF’s NIPRNet, used for up to Controlled Unclassified training. MOTAR will run on military networks this Spring, while the company also pursues an IL6 environment called MOTAR Red to bring MOTAR to SIPRNet, the secret portion of the US Defense Information Systems Network, that will allow cross-domain capability and delivery of classified training content for authorized warfighters DoD-wide. 

“The combination of our IL4 ATO, MOTAR Red, and MOTAR-In-A-Box will allow both users and creators in the MOTAR ecosystem to ‘level up’ once again,” Watry explained. “Soon, creators whose applications are deployed within the MOTAR IL4 boundary will have the option to have their content available across MIAB, SIPRNet, and NIPRNet within one seamless infrastructure.” 

US Air Force Makes Big Bet on Dynepic, Inc. with $51m STRATFI

The new funding will help MOTAR become the backbone of the Military Metaverse so Airmen can effectively train across time zones and dimensions

We're STOKED!!

Dynepic® announced today it was awarded a significant contract worth $51m. The AFWERX Strategic Funding Increase (STRATFI) will match over $36m of Phase III committed dollars with $15m of STRATFI SBIR funds to expand Dynepic's MOTAR® Platform.

Known as the secure 'platform of platforms' for training delivery, analysis, and reporting, MOTAR has been proven across the USAF in programs like Maintenance Training Next and Accelerating Pilots to Combat Ready Aviators, both of which leveraged MOTAR to harness an ecosystem of digital content to improve and enhance training. Through the streamlined, central training infrastructure, Airmen can leverage diverse eXtended Reality (XR) content, create XR training lessons, and deliver innovative training across time zones and dimensions to achieve Multi-Capable Airman (MCA) training requirements.

"This is another huge milestone in operationalizing MOTAR as the secure backbone for training delivery across the US Air Force, bringing critical immersive learning technologies to our Warfighters," said Krissa Watry, Co-Founder, and CEO of Dynepic. "It's hard to take a technology from innovation to a program of record and make it through the 'The Valley of Death'. We're excited to get this much-needed boost to keep moving and deliver this critical training infrastructure for Airmen."

With the STRATFI funding, Dynepic will:

  • Build out continuous integration and delivery pipelines for containerized and Unity applications to be rapidly fielded to production
  • Ensure seamless delivery and training management of applications across devices, including VR headsets
  • Continue to build out the secure digital infrastructure to operate across classification levels both for cloud-native and on-prem use

This news comes just a few weeks after the company secured Authorization to Operate (ATO) for MOTAR and was awarded a $2.9M Sole Source Phase III Contract to Operationalize MOTAR.

Dynepic® is a woman- and service-disabled veteran-founded tech company based out of Reno, Nevada. To learn more about Dynepic, check out our website and connect with us on LinkedIn.

Dynepic Wins Contract to Pursue MOTAR Red and Support Classified Training

There’s no stopping MOTAR®! 

Just a few weeks ago, Dynepic secured an Impact Level 4 (IL4) Authorization to Operate (ATO) for MOTAR from the United States Air Force, solidifying the secure platform across the US Air Force’s NIPRNet, used for unclassified communications. True to form, the company already has its sights set on an IL6 environment to bring MOTAR onto SIPRNet, the secret portion of the US Defense Information Systems Network. The milestone would allow MOTAR Red to deliver classified training content for authorized warfighters DOD-wide. 

“With MOTAR officially launching on NIPRNet this Spring to be the secure training delivery, analysis, and reporting platform, it just makes sense that we provide the same capabilities across classified environments as well,” said Dynepic Co-Founder and CEO, Krissa Watry. “We’re in the early stages of design, but it is clear the military metaverse requires a cross-domain solution that will allow for training lessons to easily be deployed up to IL6 classified environments, while student metrics can still flow down to the Unclassified MOTAR Live (IL4) environment.”

When MOTAR Red is approved, it will share a common code base with MOTAR Live (IL4) while leveraging configuration as code to enable classified environment requirements. This will ensure cost efficiency and enable rapid technology deployment even in a Classified environment.

Dynepic’s Sr. Security Engineer George Moats added, “There’s not a doubt in my mind MOTAR Red will be the secure backbone of SIPRNet and show the same stellar results as MOTAR Live on NIPRNet. There aren’t many commercial organizations trying to do what we’re doing, and we’re happy to be the trailblazers.”
