Spectrum Comm, Inc. Selected For Domestic Markets Expansion Program

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Spectrum Comm, Inc. was among 12 companies chosen to benefit from the Domestic Markets Expansion Program.

No state is more reliant on Department of Defense funding than Virginia. GENEDGE worked with the Governor’s office to design and implement the Virginia Domestic Markets Expansion Program (DMEP), which helps Virginia companies expand their businesses by diversifying into non-defense-related areas. For those companies that qualify and are accepted into the program, DMEP provides specific and targeted services to each individual company to help them enter new markets, develop new products and utilize new market channels to grow their business. This selective program has been offered by GENEDGE over the last two years, serving over 120 DOD supply chain companies, and helping 45 of them create and implement strategies to diversify and grow their businesses through innovative commercial offerings.

In its third year, the program is funded to assist 12 companies that previously benefited from DMEP services continue their commercialization efforts. This new approach enables the program to help each company grow by accelerating the execution of strategic initiatives to firmly diversify their business and help build the New Virginia Economy.

Twenty companies participated in a competitive selection process based on evaluation of their business case for a new, specific business opportunity. The selection panel consisted of 5 members of the GENEDGE Board of Trustees. All companies did a great job of presenting excellent opportunities – making the funding decision extremely competitive. We are pleased to announce that Spectrum Comm, Inc. was selected to receive funding to further their commercialization efforts.

Spectrum Comm, Inc. was founded in 1999 and is located in Newport News, Va. They are an employee-owned business that specializes in C4ISR, acquisition and logistics, cyber services and engineering integration.

The new product that Spectrum has introduced is the Go-Box. The Go-Box will resolve the issue associated with the manual process of the initial configuration and subsequent reset and refresh of Chromebooks. Potential keying errors add additional time and cost required for schools that deploy up to thousands of the device. The Go-Chrome appliance allows for secure and automated configuration or refresh of multiple devices simultaneously which results in no errors and reduces the time required by up to 80 percent.
