: 29 October, 2007  (Company News)
Aptima is opening an office in Dayton, Ohio, locating alongside military, university, and research lab partners that are developing new technologies focused on the human element of warfighting.
Recognized as a center of scientific and military expertise in the area of human performance, Dayton is home to the Air Force Research Lab, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Wright State University, and University of Dayton Research Institute. Aptima's long-standing collaboration with these institutions has led to the development of simulation, training and measurement technologies for improving the combat performance of fighter pilots, AWACs controllers, and other warfighters.

'As military missions and systems become more complex there's an urgent need to create technologies that aid and improve how humans perform,' said Daniel Serfaty, Principal Founder and President of Aptima. 'The close proximity and partnerships among the military agencies, research labs and contractors in Dayton creates a remarkable synergy for the research and development of cutting edge, yet affordable technologies. Aptima is thrilled to be located next to our partners.'

Under the 2005 defense base closure process ('BRAC'), medical-related research and educational organizations will be consolidated at Wright-Patterson from Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Florida. These organizations will work with the existing Human Factors Directorate already located at the Base. The moves will be completed by 2011. Additionally, a new Human Performance Wing will be formed, encompassing AFRL's Human Effectiveness Directorate and several other entities.

Aptima, which expects to hire between 15-20 employees over the next three years, was assisted in its selection of the Dayton region by the Dayton Development Coalition. The company was extended Job Creation Tax Credits from the State of Ohio through the Ohio Tax Credit Authority, and relocation incentives from Greene County and the City of Fairborn.

'With Aptima coming to the Dayton Region, we are seeing the fruits of the BRAC victory,' said Jim Leftwich, Chief Operating Officer of the Coalition. 'We expect to see many more jobs created in the region in the next several years as a result of the new defense missions.'
