LVC Interoperability Challenge
On August 1, 2023, Michael O’Connor and Dr. Michael Bearss presented the Trideum entry for the Central Florida Tech Grove LVC Interoperability Challenge. There were eight presenting teams selected to compete for a share of $100,000 in prize money as well as recognition from the community. Thanks to the hard work and expertise of the extended Trideum team, the judges awarded Trideum Corporation first prize and $50,000 in prize money. Although the judges were from the Naval Air Warfare Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the USMC, the Tech Grove challenge was supported by all the services and the University of Central Florida.
Thanks to the entire Trideum SimChEC Team who supported the preparation for this successful event, including Joel Banta, Tim Friest, Kurt Lessmann, Jason Martin, Stefano Partida, Mark Riecken, Aaron Robinson, and Britt Sheffield.
Trideum has a longstanding commitment and demonstrated expertise in LVC interoperability. We are committed to supporting the services in their increasingly challenging tasks of building complex LVC networks for purposes of national security.
—Kurt Lessmann, Chief Technology Officer for Trideum
