Gay Porter, vice president of Engility’s technical solutions group, said the event allowed employees to meet with senior systems engineers who support the U.S. Air Force‘s Global Positioning System and those who offer cybersecurity expertise to the U.S. Navy‘s frigate shipbuilding program.

“Every year this event results in some ‘lightbulb’ moments as employees imagine unique solutions they could leverage for their clients’ missions,” Porter added.

Engility modified the Synthetic Analyst system for Defense Department clients as a result of discussions during last year’s employee trade show.

The company-hosted annual event began in 2007.
