Acute Focus on the Airman’s Needs

Using Human-Centered Design (HCD) techniques, we uncover the true problem, deeply examine user pain points, and explore future trends and conflicts. The result: custom solutions and capabilities designed around the Airman’s precise needs.

Forecasting and Education

We scan two to three “ridgelines” out to discover upcoming technology and anticipate potential problems so that they won’t happen. Our futures-focused approach also empowers Airmen to optimize the new tech and smooth its transition as soon as it emerges.
