Phase III Alert!!! Our very own Virginia Beach #SDVOSB, Phoenix Group of Virginia, has been awarded a SBIR Phase III with their Air Force customer out of the 22nd Air Refueling Wing in Kansas. The Phase III’s backbone technology is based on installation energy to reduce costs and emissions creating more eco-friendly bases around the country. This was a long sought-after Phase III, but C5BDI was successful in helping our client bridge the notorious valley of death that so many contractors find themselves in.
In our recent giveback, we have donated to Weighted Angels. Weighted Angels is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization operating in Hampton Roads and Richmond Virginia that provides weighted stuffed animals to grieving families that have experienced pregnancy and infant loss. Infant and pregnancy loss is an unfathomable event for any expecting parent, so Weighted Angels help provide comfort and support for those who have to go through this unfortunate experience.
We’d like to take today to highlight one of our newest team members to C5BDI, Craig Knox! He joined our team back in June of this year as one of our Proposal Writers, so for any of our clients who hire us for writing proposals, Craig might be the man behind that written doc. Craig, thank you for everything you’ve done for the team and we are excited to have you as one of our newest C5BDI team members!
We want to honor Queen Elizabeth II and her passing today. Sending our condolences to her family and those mourning her death around the world.
Queen Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms from February 6th, 1952 – today, September 8th, 2022. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch in history and the second longest recorded of any monarch of a sovereign country in history.
