Modest Tree was awarded a contract by the United States Space Force (USSF) – a division of the U.S. Armed Forces through Space Launch Delta 45. The contract will address the U.S. Department of Defense’s interest in a 3-D/virtual reality (VR) system to identify any issues and help mechanics’ proficiencies when servicing vehicles at the 45th Logistics Readiness Squadron Vehicle Maintenance centre. The 3-D/VR system will be delivered with Modest Tree’s Tech Companion software and was awarded through participation in the Space Launch Delta 45 Pitch Day.
Regarding the program, “Space Launch Delta 45 prioritizes shaping the future through revitalizing our squadrons, transforming the enterprise, and innovating at every level,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Mark Shoemaker, Vice Commander for Operations, U.S. Air Force. “This year’s Pitch Day was successful in helping us accelerate acquisition and implementation of key enabling technologies and capabilities to execute our mission of assuring access to space and delivering combat capabilities for the Nation.”
The program is designed to obtain innovative solutions for the U.S. Space Force that meets mission needs, closes capability gaps and provides technological advancements. During Pitch Day, a panel of evaluators listen to the pitches and evaluate them on funds availability, importance to agency programs, and technical merit. The three-member panel for this year’s Pitch Day included U.S. Air Force Col. Mark Shoemaker, Vice Commander for Operations, U.S. Air Force Col. Anthony Graham, Vice Commander of Support, and Gregg Kraver, Executive Director.
