AFSIM Training & Ohio TechCred

We are excited to announce our inclusion into the Ohio TechCred website as a training provider for both the AFSIM User and Developer Training certificate courses. Our AFSIM training courses have been a resounding success and we hope this allows defense contractors to get even more of their workforce trained on these vital skills required across many DoD programs and beyond. This is a great benefit to many companies wanting to improve their workforce skills through reimbursable training.

For existing TechCred participants, you can find us under AFSIM within the credential list by visiting the TechCred credential list here, and searching for AFSIM.

If you’re an Ohio business not currently enrolled in the program, we encourage you to visit the TechCred website. The program allows businesses to identify skills needed for their workforce, partner with a credential provider and apply for reimbursable credential training. To learn more about the process involved, please see TechCred’s About page.

Agility Prime Phase II Awards

We are excited to announce not only one but two Agility Prime Phase II awards! The first effort will focus on Urban Air Mobility for satellite communications connectivity while the second effort will focus on emerging battery technologies.

We are confident that the technologies and toolsets we’re working on to support the UAM network bring significant value-added to eVTOL primes as well as other users in both the commercial and defense sectors. In total, these awards account for nearly $1.5M in funding over a 15 month period-of-performance. As a two-time Agility Prime Phase II awardee, this is an honor we do not take lightly and remain humbled at AFWERX’s confidence in our technical understanding and approach. These awards expand the company’s R&D bonafides, infrastructure, and innovative mindset to solve the world’s hardest problems.

Digital Acquisition Meets Urban Air Mobility

We’re excited to announce our award of three research contracts from the U.S. Air Force as part of Agility Prime, a non-traditional program to accelerate the commercial market for advanced air mobility vehicles.

The research addresses emerging technology needs and ecosystem-wide capabilities in three key areas: (i) enterprise optimization of urban air mobility satellite communications; (ii) lifecycle tradespace analysis of emerging urban air mobility battery technologies; and (iii) immersive 3D auditory perception in urban air mobility operating environments. Infinity Labs is teamed with The Ohio State University in all efforts.

The solutions being developed by the Infinity Labs team are geared toward “big picture” understanding of synergies amongst enabling technologies, vehicle platforms, and system-of-system implications of commercial and military operations. In addition to addressing specific research questions as part of Agility Prime, the Infinity Labs team will be creating a flexible and open analytical framework that effectively brings digital acquisition tools and methodologies to the urban air mobility market.

In addition to The Ohio State University, the Infinity Labs team also includes Ansys – the global leader in engineering simulation. Scott Granger, Director for USAF Programs at Ansys states, “Ansys is proud to collaborate with Infinity Labs on Agility Prime and push the boundaries of innovation. Digital engineering is a core tenant to Air Force strategy and building virtual twins of UAMs with Infinity Labs will help demonstrate the value of modeling & simulation.

Infinity Labs is grateful for the support from our research and industrial partners and the sponsorship from the Air Force Research Laboratory. We would also like to thank Dr. Will Roper, SAF/AQ, whose visionary leadership continues to inspire and enable innovators throughout the defense community.

Infinity Labs is an innovation-focused defense firm based in Dayton, Ohio that fosters an entrepreneurial mindset to solve our nation’s hardest problems. Want to learn more? Check out the rest of our website.

Infinity Labs LLC Challenges the Status Quo

(see the Dayton Business Journal for the BizSpotlight article published on 7/16/2020)

New capabilities provider and entrepreneurial technology company Infinity Labs LLC plans to intensify and accelerate the innovation renaissance occurring in the Dayton region.

Amidst the many defense firms surrounding Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Infinity Labs aspires to stand out among the crowded landscape. Unique in the defense and aerospace ecosystem by promoting both radical innovation and entrepreneurship as founding principles, Infinity seeks to solve complex problems through invigorating and inspiring creators. According to Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ken Edge, “While other companies may provide engineering solutions that address customer requests, our company designs, builds, and implements enduring capabilities to solve the problem beyond the problem that is, the issue customers have yet to identify or anticipate. Engineers are naturally problem solvers, so why limit their creativity and innovation to fit inside a proposal response when the alternative is often transformational.

Infinity Labs was founded in Dayton, OH by seven members: three U.S. military veterans (Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps) each with significant cyber, Department of Defense, and industry experience; a former Federal civilian from the Air Force Research Laboratory with multiple decades of experience in multidisciplinary technologies; and three distinguished experts in system-of-systems modeling, simulation, and analysis. Since beginning national operations, Infinity Labs has hit the ground running. “We knew there would be interest in our company and its capabilities, but to receive such a steady surge of attention, a constant stream of inquiries, and hundreds of job applicants since our launch has been really motivating” according to Chief Disruption Officer, Jason Klein.

With entrepreneurship and radical innovation at its core, Infinity invests in revolutionary ideas and technologies with disruptive potential. The company views technological advancements strategically, through the lens of National Defense Strategy, and recognizes that the creation of transformational capabilities requires the embrace of unorthodox approaches. At Infinity, employees are encouraged (and trained) to think holistically and to attack problems from all possible viewpoints. According to the innovation architect within the company, Dr. Nick Kuprowicz, “Innovation occurs at the interfaces. It is fundamentally driven by new connections between disciplines, organizations, and perspectives. The modern defense ecosystem has embraced this culture of integration, and at Infinity Labs we are taking it to the extreme. We don’t just think outside of the box. We destroy the box.

If you too are a status quo destroyer and would like to work with Infinity, please get in touch here.
