COMPANY OVERVIEW

Pioneer Award(Finalist)

Dr. Lee Lacy, Ph.D., CMSP

Dr. Lacy is currently Director of Programs, DiSTI Corporation. He is a 30-year veteran of the Simulation and Training community, contributing to the success and growth of the industry in the United States and abroad. He is a Certified Modeling and Simulation Professional with a doctorate in Modeling and Simulation. His contributions throughout his career have helped shape the industry from its founding with first-generation graphical programming, his contributions towards developing standards for distributed learning in the mid-1980’s, to the present with the development of intelligent tutoring and the new era of increasing student immersion with virtual and mixed reality.

Of late, his contributions have focused on managing programs that leverage commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) applications to deliver high-performing results for military programs while simultaneously “de-greening” military virtual maintenance... Read More

Dr. Lacy is currently Director of Programs, DiSTI Corporation. He is a 30-year veteran of the Simulation and Training community, contributing to the success and growth of the industry in the United States and abroad. He is a Certified Modeling and Simulation Professional with a doctorate in Modeling and Simulation. His contributions throughout his career have helped shape the industry from its founding with first-generation graphical programming, his contributions towards developing standards for distributed learning in the mid-1980’s, to the present with the development of intelligent tutoring and the new era of increasing student immersion with virtual and mixed reality.

Of late, his contributions have focused on managing programs that leverage commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) applications to deliver high-performing results for military programs while simultaneously “de-greening” military virtual maintenance training (VMT) best practices to improve results for commercial clients implementing virtual training solutions. His pioneering work in VMT development, combined with his expertise in program management, has directly contributed to many multi-million dollar programs delivering training to thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen throughout his career.

He is presently writing a book, to be published later this year, on the science behind the learning, training delivery and practical application of virtual maintenance training. Immersed in the Orlando simulation training culture, Lee regularly gives back to the local community and engages with other thought leaders via event participation, article submissions, board positions and mentoring. He is widely recognized for his contributions and active engagement with local STEM programs, the National Defense Industrial Association, the National Center for Simulation, ITEC and I/ITSEC communities.
