Simulyze, Inc., a leading provider of operational intelligence (OI) technology and applications that empower both federal and commercial organizations, today announced it has been named to the 2019 NVTC Tech 100 list by the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), the membership and trade association for the technology community in Northern Virginia and Greater Washington.

Recognized two years in a row for its federal and commercial drone work as well as its support of the research and development of UAS traffic management (UTM) projects with NASA and the FAA, Simulyze remains the only UAS service supplier who has exercised with all build versions of NASA’s UTM software and continues to play an integral part in supporting ongoing research phases.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the Northern Virginia Technology Council for the second consecutive year,” said Kevin Gallagher, president and CEO of Simulyze. “Simulyze remains committed to innovating in the Greater Washington, D.C. area and addressing the most pressing needs in the government, military and commercial drone industries while partnering with federal agencies that are putting in place the regulatory and technical backbone to empower UAS in the U.S.”

Since its founding, Simulyze’s OI technology has been deployed across numerous organizations in and around the Greater Washington D.C. area and worldwide, including the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community. Operationally deployed globally, its systems are trusted to safeguard data vital to the country’s national security. Simulyze’s flagship product, Mission Insight™, is the industry’s leading commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) application that makes complete situational awareness easy to attain and easy to deploy. After decades supporting government and military organizations, Simulyze has entered into the burgeoning commercial drone space.

Simulyze has led the industry’s support to the federal government in its research and development of technologies and platforms for enabling safe and effective UAS operations. In 2019, Simulyze continued its work with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in partnership with NASA to lay the groundwork for an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) traffic management system (UTM). Simulyze took part in the North Dakota test site selected by the FAA for the UAS Traffic Management Pilot Program (UPP), which demonstrated that multiple drone flights taking place beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) can be safely conducted at low altitudes in airspace where FAA air traffic services are not provided. Simulyze is working with the FAA and NASA to accommodate these operations safely and efficiently as demand for low-altitude drone use increases.
The 2019 “NVTC Tech 100” list is comprised of 100 top technology companies and 25 executives that are considered to be the best and brightest in the diverse and thriving technology ecosystem. The individuals and companies listed are accredited for driving technology innovation, implementing new solutions for their customers and leading growth in the Greater Washington region. Nominations received were reviewed and Tech 100 companies and executives were selected by a judging committee. The Tech 100 was celebrated at an event in Tysons Corner, Va. on Dec. 9, 2019.
