Victory Solutions is proud to have entered into a Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) effort with NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC). This CAN will demonstrate the effective use of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to complete typical design milestone-type reviews using a digital thread-based Product Lifecycle Management process for the Space Nuclear Propulsion (SNP) Program. Applying this data centric approach will enhance overall design review efficiency including ease of reviewer access, control board changes using a digital model, and cost-effective model reuse for future SNP reviews throughout the program lifecycle. Victory Solutions looks forward to supporting the SNP Program with a technology demonstration approach that combines our NASA Configuration Data Management expertise with ongoing MSFC digital transformation efforts.

Three of our Systems Engineering Technology (SET) interns from Calhoun Community CollegeAnthony Sanders, Kevin Calderon and Collin Langseth, were awarded On the Spot awards from company president David Alan Smith for their excellent MBSE support provided to Boeing and the Missile Defense Agency while working on the GMD System Integration, Test, and Readiness (SITR) contract. Anthony, Kevin and Collin have been recognized by the customer for their professional attitudes, understanding and adaptability to assignments, and high quality of work. Congratulations!

A great time was had by all at the Calhoun Black & White Gala Friday evening at the Cook Museum of Natural Science in Decatur, AL! Victory Solutions was proud to be a Silver Sponsor for the event which raises funds for scholarships, professional development, curriculum improvement and promotion of programs offered at  Calhoun Community College. Also had the opportunity to meet Anthony Sanders, a Systems Engineering Technoloy (SET) student at Calhoun, who provided the audience with information on this new program educating systems modelers to meet the demand for MBSE-skilled employees in the aerospace and defense industries.
