TRABUS Participates in EDC’s Defense Innovation Voucher Program Grand Prize Pitch

San Diego, CA (May 23, 2019) – Trabus Technologies, along with four other local companies—EpiSys Science, Inc. (EpiSci), Fuse Integration, Inc., GET Engineering Corporation and Planck Aerosystems—participated in the San Diego Economic Development Corporation’s (EDC) DIV Grand Prize Pitch today.

The Defense Innovation Voucher (DIV) program is a comprehensive business initiative, designed to build resilience in small to medium-sized, San Diego-based defense companies. Fifteen diverse companies were chosen to participate in the 2018-19 DIV program, each receiving an initial $15,000 grant for their participation. Of the 15 participants, five finalists were chosen to compete for an additional $25,000 prize. Each of the five companies shared their San Diego story and plan for the prize if awarded. All five finalists did a superb job at representing San Diego’s diverse and innovative defense technology community. Congratulations to all participants, particularly Planck Aerosystems, who won the grand prize.

A special thank you to Booz Allen Hamilton, San Diego ERDC, and the San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) for the opportunity to participate in Propel San Diego’s DIV Program.
