Red 6, a technology firm at the forefront of synthetic air combat training, has today announced the opening of its new headquarters in Miami, and a new Technology Hub in Orlando, Florida, US. “The move will allow Red 6 to build a presence in two great cities within a state that leads the United States in business friendliness, corporate openness, and economic growth,” said Daniel Robinson, Founder and CEO of Red 6.
According to Red 6, moving to the State of Florida is a strategic business decision for the company and its customers. Following a successful USD $30M Series A funding round, Red 6 has selected the two sites to help drive its growth. “Florida is attractive for many reasons; high quality education systems and talent availability, the state’s competitive operating costs, present and projected economic growth trajectory, government investment in infrastructure, access to military customers at nearby centers of excellence, a business-friendly culture, and more,” said Maissan Almaskati, Chief Financial Officer of Red 6.
The company noted in its announcement that Orlando’s proximity to Florida’s “internationally renowned” simulation and training industry will create an ideal foundation for Red 6’s next phase of growth. “We are thrilled to be in Florida, and with high-skill and high-wage jobs we know we will attract and retain the world-class talent developed here,” added Robinson.
Red 6 works with the US Air Force to provide an augmented reality (AR) solution for military training applications as part of the AFWERX program. Today’s announcement adds to the momentum that the company has been building throughout this year and would indicate that there is continued and increasing demand from the defence sector for Red 6’s AR fighter pilot training offering.
