Ever heard of “death by PowerPoint?” That feeling of staring at crowded slides while desperately trying to stay awake? Our San Antonio team will have none of that. Working closely with the defense community, they’re dreaming up ways to prepare our armed forces using immersive techniques that make PowerPoint look as dated as a chalkboard.
Immersive environments are simulated experiences that mimic reality to teach complex tasks. You can practice language skills by exploring a foreign restaurant, rehearse your response to cyber threats on an operations floor, and even learn how to fly a plane.
“One of our goals is to train pilots safely and quickly,” says Steve Wright, who leads our Air Force contract in San Antonio. “That’s where augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) come into play. Instead of watching a slide deck or visualizing a flight maneuver, you don VR goggles and experience it.”
From digital arts to production for VR platforms, our team is focused on every aspect of the industry and growing exponentially. One reason for the rapid-fire expansion is Booz Allen’s reputation, says Recruiter Lauren Jordan. “We’re a company of dreamers, drivers, and doers, so the government consistently trusts us to do great work.”
And that work is truly leading edge. Business Development Lead Sophia Rodriguez and her teammates collaborate at the forefront of innovative technology adoption for the U.S. Air Force. “We were recently selected as the premier Digital Twin provider at Tyndall Air Force Base,” she says. “This work will transform how the Department of Defense collects, analyzes, and visualizes data. Our integrated approach will drive decisions for our resilient installations.”
Solving complex problems is only part of the revolution underway in San Antonio. We also focus on internal transformation, which is why we encourage our people to grow.
Jay Stowell, a lead technologist on the cyber team, has applied his work experience to further his professional certifications. “I passed the Certified Information Systems Security Professional exam, one of the most difficult cybersecurity certifications to achieve,” he says. “Experience is key for the exam, and thanks to the expertise I’ve gained working at Booz Allen, I was able to achieve this major professional development milestone.”
