Dynamic Software Solutions was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I contract from the US Small Business Administration through their SBIR program for the proposal “Integration of Geospatial, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies.” This project is responsive to the Air Force’s needs for an autonomous system to ingest data streams from various platforms/systems utilizing 2- and 3-dimensional data, geospatial data (raster & vector), AR & VR data, and audio data within the US Air Force Command and Control (C2) Simulator.
The award will allow DS2 to research candidate solutions to incorporate existing Rapid Airfield Damage Assessment (RADAS) software, real-world working groups, and training simulators in a connected environment and to develop a proof of concept. Jeff Williams, Director of Operations at DS2, is leading the research team in the development of the candidate solution that integrates many of the software stacks DS2 has been involved in over the past twenty years. Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Richard Pruitt said: “Most companies, like ours, working in the Information Technology domain need to stay ahead of the technology curve to be competitive. At DS2 we want to be able to give our customers a best fit solution with the most accurate and up to date technology recommendations on their problem-solving requirements."
“It is our goal to develop a solution that enables all of these AF solutions to take on the best practices, processes, and data found within each of them and share this information in a transparent and efficient manner. Time is paramount within this community and knowledge that helps them make thoughtful decisions in a quick and decisive manner will undoubtedly improve training, their performance, and potentially save lives,” said Jeff Williams.
“We’re working alongside the best and brightest Civil Engineers and their stakeholders to better understand their business process,” said Jeff Williams. “That’s what’s exciting—their insight into a very complex process will ultimately define the solution and data that must logically be shared.”
Aims of the research project are to identify candidate solutions and develop a proof of concept between the various systems to illustrate how these systems can collaborate and share information and processes. New insights will inform future development initiatives on the integration of data across all these solutions. The research team intends to use the findings from this project to support a larger evaluation of the integration needs through the SBIR mechanism in 2021.

Dynamic Software Solutions (DS2), is excited to announce the award of the company’s first Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract from the US Small Business Administration, working directly with AFLCMC/HMB OL1.
DS2 was awarded a follow-on Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract to further develop on the work during the Phase I for the “Integration of Geospatial, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies” topic.
DS2 is quickly evolving into a recognized provider of mission planning software to the warfighter.
The EWAAC vehicle will allow DS2 to continue to serve our customers at AFLCMC/EB, AFLCMC/HB, AFRL and others by providing a means to support the development of new technologies and engineering solutions to further their missions. This 10-Year $46 Billion IDIQ is the way of the future, providing Eglin with a local and agile procurement solution to meet the needs of the digital trinity. DS2 is currently using this vehicle to develop mobile mission planning solutions using tools like ATAK, JMPS, and NOMS.
DS2 was recently awarded a subcontract through Intuitive Research and Technology Corporation of Huntsville, Alabama to address mission planning capability gaps via mobile device / applications.
Over the past two-decades, DS2 staff have been developing solutions to meet various civil engineering command and control mission needs.
