Four companies have been named to Capital Business‘ and the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s 2015 Destination Innovation competition that seeks to recognize products that show potential or value of being transitioned to market, the Washington Post reported Thursday.
Aaron Gregg writes in-home systems company CyberTimez, broadband provider Kajeet, information technology firm Unisys and Fairfax County Public Schools were declared finalists following a round of online voting from Post readers and product presentation that culminated in a panel interview from industry representatives this week.
Leeseburg-based CyberTimez was cited in the wearables and robotics category for its voice-operated smart watch technology, while Kajeet topped the education category for its take-home Wi-Fi broadband service for schools.
Unisys, which pitched its Stealth cyber defense tool, won the safety and security category, while Fairfax County Public Schools’ bring-your-own-device registration for students was picked for the apps and platforms category.
In NVTC’s live tweets of his keynote address before the declaration of winners, Tony Moraco, Science Application International Corp. CEO, urged participants to continue applying technology with a “holistic view” of both what is economic and practical.
