In addition, we assist with the documentation of policies and procedures for performing cybersecurity scanning and testing of all applications, operating systems, services, interfaces, and system components per the guidelines provided in the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, and for applying security patches following the DoD Information Assurance Vulnerability Management (IAVM) process.
Furthermore, our professionals are developing Risk Management Framework (RMF) package documentation required for Authority To Operate (ATO)-submission, which includes the following components: Platform IT (PIT) Determination package documentation, System Categorization Form, Information System Continuous Monitoring Strategy (ISCM), Security Plan (SP), Step Concurrence forms, Plan of Actions and Milestones (POA&M), Security Assessment Plan (SAP), Security Assessment Report (SAR), Risk Assessment Report (RAR), Security Authorization Package, CYBERSAFE Certification, Package Endorsement Letters.
Transtecs' developed Artificial Intelligence (AI) based, Adaptive Learning (AL) featured training software achieves performance-based training, data streaming and collection, and automated recommendations for the training at the point of need (PoN). Our AI-based training software transforms the traditional learning processes and capabilities into an adaptive environment that responds, in real-time, to learner needs. We leverage open-source software solutions and products to develop our AI-based training software that incorporates AL algorithms and technologies to improve learning effectiveness/efficiency and increase learner perceptions of mastery and self-efficacy. Improved learning mastery directly improves the efficiency and effectiveness of Warfighter readiness.
Transtecs currently performs software design, development, and modification using Development, Security, Operations (DevSecOps) principles derived from Agile methodologies. At Transtecs, we work in a team-based Agile environment. Our customers specify high-level requirements or capabilities to our Agile team. We then use modified Agile processes to develop and estimate user stories and establish acceptance criteria, metrics, and the Minimum Viable Capability Release. Our team also implements DevSecOps strategies, continuous delivery pipeline, and DevSecOps metrics relevant to the project, including (not limited to) Lead Time, Deployment Frequency, the Mean Time to Recovery, and the Change Fail rate.
Our Agile team increases CI/CD/CT capabilities during software development by implementing automation components into our integration, delivery, and testing pipeline while also reducing the time to move approved code from development to production. We further improve processes by streamlining and integrating enhanced security practices within our CI/CD pipeline and automating code repository management, configuration management, code branching/merging, testing code coverage, and code scans.
Transtecs is helping our military forces close the gap between the conceptual knowledge taught in the classroom and the procedural, hands-on learning taught to students in workshops or while deployed. We are accomplishing this task by introducing 3D interactive and virtual training solutions that improve the communication and comprehension of technical knowledge in the classroom, workshop, and operationally. Based on a proven instructional design framework, Transtecs solutions improve student test scores and reduce failure rates while also offering significant cost avoidance. Additionally, our training services accelerate learning by providing unlimited practice of installation, maintenance, and repair procedures using job guides and maintenance manuals.
At the heart of Transtecs' 3D interactive and virtual training solutions are detailed knowledge objects, hi-resolution but low megabyte models, and accurate part specifications and definitions within realistic training environment(s). In addition, we develop exact interactive trainers that provide a complete virtual representation of the system, allowing the student to train with the digital system to the degree required to complete the selected maintenance task(s). Finally, we include an "advanced" Learning Management System that uses xAPI information to track user interactions within the training environment, evaluate what the student did right, and assess inputs the student selected that were not part of the operator and maintenance process.
Transtecs' Virtual Maintenance Training and Simulation is an integrated training system that includes a virtual environment-based maintenance training simulation integrated with a hardware part-task trainer. Using our maintenance training simulations, we shift student-training time from expensive platform instructors and full-up trainers - to - virtual reality simulations operating on workstations and fully modeled part-task trainers. In addition, we incorporate a Learning Management System to maintain student records as part of our maintenance training solutions. Transtecs' Virtual Maintenance Training and Simulation goal is to accelerate learning by providing unlimited practice of installation, maintenance, and repair procedures using job guides and maintenance manuals. We use realistic and highly detailed virtual models, equipment, systems, and hardware to provide more realistic operations and maintenance-training environment. Over time, schoolhouses and training centers will accelerate learning and improve comprehension, remove bottlenecks, increase throughput, and overcome limited training time by using our interactive 3D simulations when teaching maintenance procedures.

Transtecs' Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) Development Lab provides interactive graphical content from IMI levels 1-3. We boast a development team whose sole purpose is to design, develop, and deliver high-quality IMIs and Complex Media products to the US military and industry. The Transtecs IMI Development team is entirely in-house, and we use no consultants or outside contractors. All IMIs and Complex Media development is coordinated with the curriculum development team to ensure material correctly supports the course material.
With over 17 years of modeling and animation experience plus 15+ years of dedicated experience designing, developing, and delivering interactive simulations, Transtecs houses one of the most experienced designer-developers in the country. Our IMIs and Complex Media products have become powerful instructor tools at the schoolhouses. We build our IMIs to exacting standards, down to the lowest level of detail or with minor detail for higher-level instruction when we include components for systems familiarization. Our IMIs allow students to zoom in, provide real-time cutaway views of multipart systems, and change the rendering mode on the fly from full color, line drawing mode, or even to an x-ray mode. In addition, students can interactively stop a simulation and zoom into and pan around an area of interest to ensure the lesson topic is fully understood.
Transtecs' advanced gaming applications apply training strategies that capitalize on the inherent strengths of immersive, virtual environments to provide students with the capability to achieve knowledge, ability, proficiency, and skill. Our xAPI-enabled, game-based training applications provide immersive-interactive simulations of mechanical layout exploration, system and sub-system familiarization, maintenance training, and system operation testing. Additionally, the gaming application streams and collects xAPI assertions from the student's assessment activities to estimate competency levels and recommend additional or new training avenues. Our gaming functionality and high-fidelity virtual environment deliver the necessary immersion for interactive training simulations. The gaming simulation applications delivered are highly reusable, economical, and low-risk alternatives to using actual equipment.
At Transtecs, we provide professional and technical support for planning, analyzing, designing, developing, and maintaining various training course documents and administrative management support.
