Who in the world of CHA is Chris Gallagher?

We’re excited to feature CHA’s Chris Gallagher in this entry of our “Who in the world of CHA” series. Chris has been with CHA for six years (in June), and he’s been a part of our Research & Disruption (R&D) department since 2017. As our regular readers know, we recently featured our entire R&D department and the incredible work they are doing to ensure CHA stays on the forefront of the latest technology while making some truly inspirational strides in the products we offer. So, who better to feature next, than the man who lives and breathes all things tech?

Chris’ official title here is Senior Multimedia Developer and he works closely with a bunch of engineering and computer science types while claiming not to be one himself. We think he fits in just fine, and is an integral part of what makes our R&D department so successful. We asked him what he’s most excited about at work these days and he said, “Using off-the-shelf game engine technology to generate digital twins for machine learning and computer vision.” For those of us who don’t speak CHA R&D lingo, a game engine is simply a software development environment designed for people who build video games. What they’re doing in R&D right now is exploring ways to use these game engines to enhance and expand upon the AI and other products we already produce, making them better and enabling these products to do even more. If you want to know more, check out our article on how R&D is playing with existing technology here.

While not a veteran, Chris is passionate about creating and turning out products that keep our military men and women safe and on the top of their game (pun partially intended). Chris claims his outside hobbies pretty much mirror what he does at CHA. “I’m into 3D, VR, and AR development, motion graphics, and design. These are the things I’ve been doing regularly as a hobby,” he says. Given his passion for technology, it may seem surprising to learn that Chris and his wife have two daughters currently in college studying for careers in the arts. His youngest is studying acting and his oldest is studying the visual arts. But lest we think his daughters may have fallen away from the proverbial parental tree, we should note Chris takes his technology interest in a similar direction:  he makes short films in his free time. “I recently completed an entirely CG-generated short film that now has more than 102,000 views on YouTube,” he told us.

What inspired such a “passion project,” as he calls it? It all goes back to a visit to the Haunted Mansion in Orlando, Fla., back when he was all of 5 years old. “I was terrified,” he recalls, but the experience stuck with him and when he had the ability and the time, he turned his hand and creative brain toward crafting that experience into something new. It took him five years to complete, working in what little free time he had, but, he says, “my knowledge of 3D grew 500% easily.” Most every aspect of his passion project spilled over into his work at CHA. “Everything from 3D model optimization to having learned how to rig 3D humans (avatars), to proficient audio engineering, virtual camera rigs, storyboarding 3D graphics, atmospherics, and 3D simulations…all of this, I bring into the work I do with 3D game engines and video production at CHA.”

It’s inspired him at work and made him more effective there as well. “What I’m pursuing now, is to go heavily into learning off-the-shelf game engines as much as I can.” He says CHA’s training division is getting into game engines to produce learning content for our clients and it’s something he’s extremely excited about. “R&D is already using [game engines] to develop AR and VR for learning content,” he states, adding that he’s excited to see that trickling over to training and, hopefully, to other departments as well.

Chris really likes what CHA has “already achieved internationally” when it comes to innovation, and he expects that to be exponentially more impressive in five years. He’s happy to be on the CHA team, striving to create new, better, beyond state-of-the-art products for clients, and looks forward to where we’ll be in the future. It’s interesting that Chris is so much at the forefront of undeveloped technology when you consider he’s an 18th- and 19th-century American history buff. “It reads better than fiction,” he says.

Behind the scenes inside CHA’s Fog Bank division

Recently we sat down with Systems Engineer Nosika Fisher and Senior Multimedia Developer Chris Gallagher of CHA’s extremely talented Research and Disruption (R&D) team, Fog Bank, to gain a little insight into what they’re up to these days. Joining us was CHA Chief Revenue Officer Chuck Wythe, who never misses a chance to showcase the incredible minds behind CHA’s innovative technology.

We asked what things CHA brings that differentiate us from other tech companies in the marketplace. Chuck was quick to point out that CHA doesn’t have a platform; we’re a product developer. CHA doesn’t have a catalog, per se, of pre-built models. Instead, everything is customized to a client’s needs. “We provide stand-alone environments that can be ‘architected’ for a client.  Our FogLifter proprietary product is a technology stack framework that we can scale, adapt, and configure to a client’s need.”

Nosika was quick to agree. “We can set up quick R&D prototypes with it. A simpler way to think about it is that we can take data that companies have but are unable to garner meaningful information from, and we can quickly spin up a prototype without the large cost of a full-blown product. We can prove or disprove theories quickly. Our prototype will answer questions clients have to help them determine their next steps.  It takes several iterations of experimentation to configure FogLifter to work with a wide variety of different structured/unstructured data, but it is not a costly, time consuming process. Once we narrow down what the client finds valuable through the prototyping approach, then we can scale it up to whatever tools or platform they prefer to use.” That adaptability and scalability is what makes FogLifter unique and drives a lot of what R&D is doing these days.

While FogLifter has been used to help our government clients sift through and interpret various data, it also has corporate functionality. “CHA does the interpreting between companies and customer in order to help facilitate industry,” Chuck said. Although it’s an expensive process to configure FogLifter for custom use, it can give a company that competitive edge in AI applications. That’s where Nosika, Chris, and Chuck all see the industry going: toward more and more advanced use of AI technology, especially that which can be completely configured and reconfigured to meet growing and changing needs.

Chris added that he’s been spending more time recently getting into 360-degree VR training. With the advances gaming technology applications have made with products such as Microsoft’s HoloLens, the training industry is seeing a shift in how it operates. “Our military clients especially are interested in how this technology can advance their training into and beyond the 21st century.” CHA has spent a considerable amount of time over the last few years developing training technology that is currently being used in places like the Navy’s Carrier-Advanced Reconfigurable Training System (C-ARTS). Being able to bring state-of-the-art training to wherever Sailors need it, whenever Sailors need it is a game changer and one that is seeing immense success. Expect R&D to continue focusing on revolutionizing VR training that will be ready and relevant for a long time to come.

Finally, lest you think Fog Bank R&D doesn’t know how to have fun while developing new technology, Chris and Nosika shared that one of the more “fun” experiments they’re running these days involves refining their identification technology. “We’ve been working on an ID tech that will allow the military to determine different data, such as IDing tanks, weapons, etc. on the battlefield,” Chuck said. “And we’ve had some success, but we’ve recently shifted focus to identifying biological stuff.” Experiments are being run right now on how accurately our tech can distinguish between male and female deer. Yes, some of us really do get to come to work and determine how well an artificial intelligence can identify bucks and does. While it’s a bit of lighthearted fun, the result will be highly-efficient and accurate AI that will be of monumental value to our military service men and women. We think you’ll agree: it’s a motivation we can get 100% behind.

CHA Speaks: Where will we be in 10 years?

Here at CHA, we believe a collaborative environment fosters the best and most innovative ideas. Teamwork really is at the hallmark of everything we do, from dreaming up the “impossible” to delivering those dreams to our clients. In the spirit of that philosophy, we’re launching a new blog series titled “CHA Speaks,” where we will hear straight from our employees about all kinds of topics CHA – some serious, some more lighthearted. Since we do dream big, we decided to start with a simple question: “Where do you think CHA will be in 10 years?”

We’re happy to report our employees overwhelmingly believe we’ll still be around in 10 years. Not only that, but as one put it, “We’ll be a big company, but with small-company attention to detail.” We wouldn’t have it any other way. Keeping that small-company dedication to detail is exactly what our clients have come to expect from us and we’ll continue to deliver cutting-edge products that don’t cut corners.

Many of our employees echo the idea that CHA will only grow and expand. We heard that a lot, but almost always with the caveat that it would be with a focus on the products and services that have helped us make our name. One put it quite succinctly: “CHA will be earning bigger contracts, but continuing to do what it does best.” Another said, “We’ll have an increased presence on the West Coast to coordinate MPT, specifically with C-ARTS operations.” Some weren’t sure we’d be a “big company,” but did say we’d be “growing a bit more, but not too much.” We hear and we’re listening. Any growth we make will be considered and executed with precision planning.

When asked more specifically what CHA might be doing in 10 years, we also heard a lot of consensus opinions. “Still at the forefront of helping DoD/DoN develop manpower and training solutions for future Sailors and the systems they’ll operate”; “Leading the industry”; and “the number-one MPT provider with exponential C-ARTS growth” were some of the responses we got. Several referenced our work with AR/VR/MR technologies. “We’ll be actively involved in AI and virtual training” as well as “at the forefront of AR/VR/MR technologies as the go-to company for AR/VR/MR development.” It’s an exciting time to be a part of the technology development world and we’re eager to explore the various ways these technologies can be applied.

Overwhelmingly, our employees answered with an understanding that they would still be part of CHA in 10 years. “We’ll be Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger,” said one employee. That might be what we’re most proud of: assembling a team of dedicated, hardworking visionaries who not only know how to dream the (seemingly) unattainable, but have the practical knowledge and skills to make the “unattainable” the next big offering our clients haven’t even yet imagined they need.

CHA Services Overview

We’re probably as eager as you are to put the challenges of 2020 behind us and look toward the possibilities of 2021. We learned a lot about ourselves and how we operate and are even more confident that we can adapt, improvise, and overcome. Since that’s the case, we thought we’d take a moment to focus on some of the amazing services we provide as well as offer a little insight into what you might see from CHA this year.

Our proprietary software, Lighthouse, is a fantastic place to start, as it is the basis of much of what we offer. This highly versatile technology stack can capture and integrate diverse datasets while providing analysis at near instantaneous rates. From training, to courseware, to instructional systems and SMART classroom design, Lighthouse can do it all. One example of this workhorse technology: the High Velocity Learning Environment, C-ARTS, is at work for the Navy helping train Sailors at their point of need as part of the Navy’s Sailor 2025 initiative.

As CHA’s Chuck Wythe likes to say, “This is an exciting time to be part of the artificial intelligence world.” CHA’s AI and Machine Learning office is working at breakneck speeds to develop and implement first-rate technology for our clients. Powered by NVIDIA NGC, our mobile AI framework, FogLifter, is capable of rapid ingestion of a wide variety of data with flexible visualization options. Our clients know that our AI and Machine Learning office will deliver state-of-the-art (if not ahead of its time) technology options.

Engineering and Logistics remains a strong part of the CHA mission. Backed by Lighthouse, we offer a wide variety of services from maintenance systems analysis to maintenance gap analysis. We also provide manuals and system installation.

Requirements Analysis also operates at “exceeds standards” levels. Need a tool to accurately and efficiently identify and analyze potential problems? Want recommendations on how to make the most of what you have and where you need to “shore up” possible soft spots? Requirements Analysis ensures our clients have the agility and strength necessary to remain at the top of their game.

Finally, we can’t go without mentioning our Research and Disruption department. The people in this department drive the innovative, industry-changing technology CHA offers. Without R&D, there would be no Lighthouse, no C-ARTS – really none of our cutting-edge services. We’re so enamored with this division in fact, that we will be offering a series of blogs providing a “sneak peek” into the work they do. If you’ve ever wondered about the great people who dream up the “impossible,” you’ll want to tune in. Who knows what you might learn? It might even inspire you to dream. If it does, rest assured that we at CHA can make that dream a reality.

How technological innovation is contributing to “Army Strong”

The history of warfare and international security is the history of technological innovation, and today is no exception.

-Klaus Schwab

The ability to work and learn from home as so many of us have been doing for nearly a year now was practically unheard of not so long ago. We may take the technological advances that make this possible for granted these days, but they are the result of years of innovation. A fierce determination by the United States Military to remain ready, relevant, and the world’s premier military force has brought about many of the technological advances we enjoy today, including the development of a little thing we like to call the internet. We are currently living in what the World Economic Forum has dubbed “the fourth industrial revolution,” one characterized by “a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.” This is occurring at a rate that has no historical precedent. The 2020 COVID-19 quarantines look nothing like those of 1918, for instance. At least in the technological sense.

The United States Army is no stranger to being on the cutting edge of technological advances. In fact, it’s one of the world’s foremost leaders. One only has to look at the most obvious ways they advance the technology cause: the development of the SB-1 Defiant and V-280 Valor aircraft, light tank prototypes, and the ever more ubiquitous autonomous aircraft otherwise known as drones. Of particular note is the Army ALIAS program, which aims to make aircraft such as the Blackhawk optionally piloted drones. With such capability, they could pick their own landing zones, fly at near ground level, and even pilot themselves better than with humans at the controls, according to Military.com.

It’s easy to point to such big-ticket items, with their wow factor, but equally impressive is the depth of attention the Army is paying to ensuring its technological dominance. For instance, the Army is leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to implement the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A), which combines more than 30 existing systems and allows soldiers to add trainings, language skills, and even hobbies to a central database that more accurately reflects their abilities. This type of technological upgrade will provide commanders with a real-time view of their forces and their capabilities, while also allowing them to identify and correct weaknesses.

Even gaming industry technology is finding a new purpose in the military. In 2018, the Army closed a $478 million deal with Microsoft that will provide Soldiers with 100,000 HoloLens headsets. This will allow for more refined and state-of-the-art training as well as have implications for real-world combat situations. Infantrymen and other troops will have heads-up displays they can use for a number of in-field applications with the potential for even more tech-savvy uses in the future. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Squad X Experimentation Program seeks to nest robots into the Army and Marine Corps to take over menial tasks, freeing up soldiers to focus on more important maneuvers.

Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum, states “the distinction between war and peace, combatant and noncombatant, and even violence and nonviolence (think cyberwarfare) is becoming uncomfortably blurry.” The Army recognizes that the state of warfare has changed drastically in the last few decades. It’s currently looking to technology to create a product that would effectively “see through walls and dense foliage.” This technology will allow Soldiers to identify friend from foe and more easily locate and track targets, and even allow tanks to see through their own armor to track enemy vehicles.

The Army is pursuing programs that will improve existing technologies and merge different technologies in innovative ways. One such example is utilizing AI and quantum computing to improve image recognition and target identification, thus allowing for the development of more autonomous weapons and cutting-edge systems. CHA is proud to be among those working to develop such technologies for our Armed Forces. Our Army has always been comprised of men and women of superior strength of character, working to protect our nation from threats of all kinds. Technological advances are simply giving them additional superpowers to ensure they remain “Army Strong” well into the next century.

CHA salutes our veterans

Cape Henry Associates (CHA) is proud to be a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSM) and we’re especially proud of the fact that 58 percent of our employees are veterans of the world’s premier military force. So as you can imagine, November is a significant month for us as we get a chance to honor those men and women who have put it all on the line to serve our country and who, after their active duty service has ended, choose to continue to serve by helping CHA develop and deliver some truly cutting-edge products that will continue to ensure America’s military strength and success.

In the past we have used this space to offer generic thanks to our nation’s military heroes (in our mind, EVERY man and woman who has put on the uniform, done the job, and more than earned the title “veteran”), to highlight specific veteran employees, and to just in general do our part to recognize the efforts, sacrifices, and patriotism of the less than 1 percent of our country’s population that answers the military call to service.

This year, we thought we’d do things a little differently. We asked our employees, both veteran and non-veteran, to tell us what they like best about working alongside CHA’s veterans. We expected certain answers (which we got) about how their knowledge of the military and the specific roles they played qualifies them to serve as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), but some of the answers surprised even us. Read on for some of the ways our veteran employees help us achieve our 99.5 percent on-time delivery rating, and how they make CHA the best place to work.

Several of our employees stated that our veterans help us because “their background allows us to utilize them as SMEs, which ultimately allows us to provide quality products.” They talked about how “our vets understand each other. They speak the lingo. This makes us uniquely qualified and adept at knowing not only the ‘what,’ but the ‘why’ behind our customers’ needs.” Our veterans added that it’s “nice to share stories and experiences. The problem with companies with mostly civilians is that civilians can be complacent to get a task done. With veterans we know how to work hard because we had to during our time in the service.” They told us how “having something in common right off the bat” helps them fit in with the CHA culture and be able to start producing quality work right away.

Everyone, veteran and civilian alike, told us time and again how the “strong sense of community and bonding” makes CHA a unique place to work. Veterans bring “commonality, understanding, and an incredible work ethic” to CHA that “ensures quality work.” “They know stuff,” said one civilian employee, “…they’re respectful, dependable, and mission-oriented.” They make it “fun to come to work” was also heard frequently.

The single word we most heard was “resourceful.” Veterans know how to work around and through obstacles. Another word we heard often was “teamwork.” Veterans are effective team members, with an “absolute passion to get the job done.” Everyone knows that teamwork is essential to CHA’s success.

What surprised us the most (though in retrospect, it shouldn’t have), was how often we heard that our veterans are the ones who contribute the most to the number one thing our employees love about working at CHA: our family culture. “The camaraderie” and the “strong sense of community and bonding” are attributes our employees find most endearing and most rewarding about our veteran work force.

So, to all our veterans, we salute you. Thank you for helping to make CHA the success it is and, more important, for fostering the type of community that engenders creativity, productivity, and success. For making us stronger by simply being who you are, and for the experiences you bring to the table, we are ever grateful. That you do so while making us laugh? Priceless.

Who in the world of CHA is Ed Myers?

We’re back and shining a spotlight on one of our favorite Cape Henry Associates (CHA) employees, Ed Myers. Well, they’re all our favorites, actually, which is why we like to take the opportunity to highlight them. If you haven’t met Ed, you really should, because he’s had an amazing career and is a stalwart as compliance director at CHA.

Ed started at CHA in January 2014, but you could make an argument that he’s been part of CHA from the very beginning. Prior to Charlie Arrants and Bill Allen starting CHA, Charlie and Ed worked together at the Center for Naval Engineering Excellence in Norfolk, Va. When Charlie and Bill decided to go after a big contract in the early days of CHA, they actually used Ed’s resume as part of the proposal. When they won (as a subcontractor), the salary they could offer Ed was so low that Charlie was embarrassed to offer it and instead mentored Ed in a different direction. So, after almost 31 years of active duty in the U. S. Navy, Ed started work with ITA International. Once sequestration hit in late 2013, Ed was let go from ITA. Charlie was on the phone that same afternoon, interviewing and offering Ed a job. Ed started at CHA in January of 2014 and the rest is the stuff CHA history is made of.

Speaking of Ed’s naval career, during that time Ed was a finalist for Fleet Master Chief Europe and a semifinalist for Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy. He served as the senior enlisted leader for the Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic and at NATO Headquarters in Norfolk. He retired as a Command Master Chief (E-9). It’s no wonder Charlie and Bill wanted him at CHA as soon as they could manage it. Ed is proud of his naval career. Although he was offered a full ride at Carnegie Mellon University and a three-year scholarship to the United States Air Force Academy, they weren’t great options for various reasons. Instead, he made an appointment with his town’s Marine Corps recruiter. When he showed up 10 minutes late, the Gunnery Sergeant had gone to lunch. Not one to miss an opportunity, the Navy recruiter came over and said they covered for the Marine Corps when they went to lunch and “since they’re part of the Navy anyway,” why not just join the Navy? We’re pretty sure that recruiter took one look at Ed and knew what an asset he would be. Ed gave almost 31 years of remarkable service to our country.

Ed currently works directly for CHA’s CEO, John Jackson. He primarily researches various certifications and requirements that cross department/divisional boundaries. He cuts through all the legalese and translates it into English for the rest of us. He tracks progress toward completion of certification requirements, and coordinates with various elements while providing much needed oversight and subject matter expertise on ISO, quality, and risk management. His favorite CHA contract that he’s been part of is the Philippine Coast Guard training curriculum. He was recently named a U.S. Subject Matter Expert to the ANSI/ASQ Technical Advisory Group 176 on Quality Management System Documentation and will serve as the ASQ Tidewater Section 1128 Leadership Committee Chairperson.

We asked Ed what he likes most about CHA and he said without a doubt, it’s “the fact that, while not always possible in the world of government contracting, we take care of each other as best we can.” The leadership “genuinely cares about their employees” and tries everything they can to keep them employed no matter what. This was truly evident when COVID-19 caused a need to convert to telework. As a high-risk individual, Ed was forced to work from home. (He is a throat cancer survivor – just ask him about how much he appreciated working for CHA through that – he’ll tell you how quickly CHA went from a work environment to a family one.) The transition was seamless. As great as teleworking is, he definitely prefers working from the office where he can more naturally interact with his work family. With leadership that is “actively involved in doing what is best for the company and its employees,” Ed sees CHA going great places in the next five years. Ed thinks we’ll be actively involved in AI and virtual training and will expand our reach in these areas past the U.S. Navy and even past DoD contracts.

Ed’s a born leader and we benefit from that every day. His leadership style is very much in keeping with his core personality: he’s a coach in the best sense of the term. He wants his team to think about how to get something done and is happy to let them try inventive ways as long as they “aren’t too out there,” while providing them with the right tools and latitude to see things through. “There are times,” he says, “when as a leader you must make the hard decision,” but doing that too often tends to breed resentment “and possibly a lemmings-just-following-orders mentality.” Ed doesn’t want that for anyone at CHA. Creativity leads to the innovations we’re striving for and if he can help that by coaching his team to “victory,” then that’s what he’ll do.

Ed believes we should live for today because anything could happen tomorrow…whether that’s an amazing opportunity or a global challenge such as COVID-19. “Have fun,” he says, “but don’t be the one caught short if the proverbial bus happens to find you.” It’s all about learning how to be decisive and living with the consequences of your decisions, good and bad. There’s always something to learn, whether you’re right or wrong. Bottom line: Life is good! It really is, Ed, and we’re glad you’re living yours here with us at CHA!

CHA’s Chuck Wythe headed to I/ITSEC

Cape Henry Associates (CHA) Chief Revenue Officer Chuck Wythe plans to again represent CHA at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Fla., in December.  He will also chair the I/ITSEC paper presentation session on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, “Unmanned, Unarmed, and Artificially Intelligent.” This is the second year Wythe will chair the paper presentation session.

I/ITSEC is the largest conference of its type and takes place annually in Orlando. At this time, I/ITSEC is still planning to hold the conference Nov. 30 through Dec. 4, 2020, but attendees and interested parties are encouraged to routinely check the I/ITSEC website for updates on COVID-19 and I/ITSEC announcements.

Who in the world of CHA is John Jackson?

John Jackson is our intrepid chief executive officer (CEO) and as such, a crucial part of the success Cape Henry Associates (CHA) has enjoyed over the last few years. John has been with CHA for six years now. He began his CHA career in 2014 and was named chief operating officer in 2015. He has occupied the CEO’s office since 2017.

John is a 12-year Navy veteran who served as an Electrician’s Mate and Nuclear Field A School instructor as well as a Navy diver. John’s military service was something he always planned on doing, though he originally thought he’d serve with the United States Air Force. But every time he went to visit the recruiter’s office, the Air Force recruiter was nowhere to be found. The Navy recruiter was happy to step in each time and talk with John about the Navy. The Air Force’s loss was the Navy’s gain and John’s experience in the Navy has transitioned well to his abilities to further CHA’s commitment to bringing top-notch training and manpower capabilities to our military services.

One of the things John most loves about his post-Naval career choice of CHA is the atmosphere. It’s a true entrepreneurial environment with people who make it a joy and a privilege to come to work. With that kind of vibe, John can rest easy, assured that CHA will continue to produce cutting-edge products that will keep our armed forces the very best in the world.

John’s seen a lot of growth in CHA during his six years here. He cites maturity as one of the areas we’ve seen the most progress. By that he means that our organization has become even more disciplined and process-oriented since his arrival. From ISO certification to compliance with PMI and export standards, CHA has become a true contender in the military contractor field. CHA has a depth that few other small contracting companies can boast and continues to strive to add to its knowledge base as well as its ability to offer a wide-range of products and services.

When asked about his leadership philosophy, John was quick to point out that he views his position as that of a coach. If he can provide an environment where those he works with feel they have the freedom to make decisions while backed by the guidance of those who may have a little more experience, then that translates into everyone feeling they have contributed to and own CHA’s successes. When everyone is vested in the success of a product or service outcome, it frees them to dream bigger and better the next time around while gaining confidence in their own abilities.

John’s favorite CHA memory so far has been the SBIR purchase in 2015. That has catapulted CHA into so many critical success stories and given us a solid foundation from which to grow. With a “coach” like John as our CEO, we know CHA will continue to garner recognition as a top military contractor and solutions provider as well as grow into our full potential, all while producing state-of-the-art products and services for our clients.
