Victory Solutions is honored to have received the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center 2023 Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year Award at the Marshall Small Business Alliance Meeting and MSFC FY23 Industry and Advocate Awards. The award is in recognition of the exemplary performance provided to the MSFC Engineering Directorate and Space Launch System Program Office under the Configuration and Data Management Contract. Kris McGuire, Founder and CEO, and Dr. Pete Rodriguez, Chief Technology Officer, accepted the award. Thanks to all of our employees and teammates whose hard work, dedication and outstanding performance led to receipt of this prestigious award.

Congratulations to our interns, Linda Myers, Bryan Haviland, GISP and Jackson Stapleton, who graduated from Calhoun Community College with their associate degree in Systems Engineering Technology (SET) last Friday! SET instructors James Grow and Ron Porter were there to cheer them on. Linda, Bryan and Jackson were part of the first student cohort to graduate with SET degrees providing them with the skills and training to enter the workforce as MBSE systems modelers. #futureisbright #mbse #collegegraduates #victorysolutions

Chris Crumbly and David Alan Smith participated in the recent Huntsville/Madison County Chamber annual trip to the State Capitol. Attendees enjoyed a reception honoring our state government leaders, the opportunity to meet and network with government leadership and lunch with Governor Kay Ivey.

Victory Solutions interns, Linda Myers and Zavier Jackson, were introduced by Calhoun Community College Systems Engineering Technology (SET) instructor, Ron Porter at this month's National Space Club - Huntsville breakfast meeting. Linda and Zavier are both doing their internships as subcontractors to Boeing supporting the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Space Launch System Program. The SET program at Calhoun trains system modelers in the use and application of tools used for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and helps address the growing need in the workforce for these high-demand skills. Calhoun will graduate their first cohort of SET students next month. Learn more about the SET Program at

The recent 2023 Washington D.C. fly-in by the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber proved our area’s incredible team and federal communities support with close to 200 in attendance. Victory Solutions is a proud team member and was represented by Chris Crumbly and Holly Ralston. Attendees participated in meetings and presentations by Senators Katie Britt and Tommy Tuberville, Congressmen Robert Aderholt and Dale Strong, and other member of Congress. Chamber leadership delivered the region’s federal agenda and issues and provided opportunities to hear from a variety of stakeholders and federal agencies: NASA, DIA, FBI, SDA, NHGRI, U.S. Chamber, and others.

Huntsville, AL Workforce training program created to address today’s digital engineering gap areas in aerospace and defense development.

IDEA, a non-profit national collaborative center supporting Digital Engineering Education and Workforce Development, is taking the next steps in fulfilling its challenge of accelerating the supply of a competent engineering technical workforce. This workforce will have the needed skills to meet the demand for employees capable of building, manipulating and exploiting Model-based System Engineering (MBSE) in the needed Systems Modeling Language (SysML) format.

IDEA in partnership with Calhoun Community College, Auburn University and Victory Solutions offers education and training solutions in Digital Engineering featuring:

• Associates Degree in Systems Engineering Technology (SET)

• Professional and Certificate Programs

• Professional Training Programs

• University Level Electives and Certificates

• Internships and Apprenticeships

These solutions are made possible through funding under the Department of Defense Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment (IBAS) Program for the continuation of the SET program development and application project including the pathfinder degree at Calhoun Community College. SET creates a new skillset of capable engineering technicians that will enable and accelerate the incorporation of digital engineering into the workplace. The SET curriculum has been developed to align with employers’ needs for workers skilled in emerging systems engineering technologies without requiring a four-year degree.

“We are confident that as the program matures throughout Alabama and our outreach expands to other states, we will see big gains toward filling the talent pipeline with a workforce that possesses more in-demand, hands-on experience with system modeling expertise,” said IDEA Executive Director and SET program Manager, Mr. Chris Crumbly.

Moving forward, the SET program continues to explore opportunities to expand its systems engineering technician curriculum to other schools across Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Project leaders are in conversations with stakeholders in Texas, Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia for potential expansion. IDEA is also working towards a Department of Labor registered apprenticeship program for SET. These next steps forward require support from industry and community to sponsor IDEA education nodes near MBE/MBSE centers of excellence, to sponsor interns and apprenticeships and to employ SET graduates.
