New training capabilities
Dynepic Delivers on Interconnected Augmented, Virtual Reality Training for USAF
The U.S. Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command has validated a new platform to keep track of disparate augmented and virtual reality training programs across the command to speed up the training process and create a continuously updating digital training record on airmen’s performance. The new technology, called the Member Operations Training Analytics and Reports platform, and soon to be distributed to AETC wings, was developed by Reno, Nevada-based Dynepic, Air Force Magazine reported Tuesday.
Dynepic, a company providing immersive learning, won the AFWERX Mixed Reality Challenge in 2019 and a series of Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 and 2 contracts. It was later awarded a multiyear Phase 3 contract supporting AETC’s Maintenance Training Next program, which has since evolved into Technical Training Next.
The company later won AFWERX’s 2020 Recruiting, Reimagined Challenge, adding recruiting elements to the MOTAR platform for both the Air and Space Forces. Additionally, Dynepic was one of seven companies to win AFWERX’s Accelerating Pilots to Combat Ready Aviators Challenge, adding another 15 products to the MOTAR platform in support of aircrew training.
Margaret Merkle, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s chief innovation officer for simulators, said the service is striving to bring together various digital training assets and capabilities into one platform so Airmen can access them from anywhere and at any time. The new platform connects all performance data for Airmen even though the actual training remains with the individual major commands, she added.
Meanwhile, Andrea Hagen, a program analyst with Air Combat Command’s Capability Development Engine Room, said that although the command is much earlier in the process than AETC, the platform could one day play into ACC’s Reforge fighter pilot training plan.
