ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 1, 2021) — Ravenswood Solutions (Ravenswood) announces the opening of its new Product Development Center (PDC) within the University of Central Florida (UCF) Innovation District at Research Park. This move expands the company’s engineering footprint beyond Silicon Valley and solidifies their commitment to being part of, and better serving, Team Orlando.

According to Ravenswood’s CEO Kipp Peppel, “We are excited to be here in the heart of the modeling and simulation community. We look forward to strengthening our partnerships through this unique intersection of industry, government, and academia to help solve the national security challenges of today and tomorrow.”

Principal Engineer Stacy Corcoran, the chief architect of the Ravenswood product family, will lead the new Product Development Center. Together with UCF, Mr. Corcoran will work to rapidly grow Ravenswood’s local engineering presence, with a focus on augmented reality, expeditionary networks, and data analytics. “I am eager to bring our technology and ideas from Silicon Valley and blend them with the rich experience and know-how of Orlando’s modeling and simulation community to develop better solutions for our customers,” says Corcoran.

Corcoran is joined in Orlando by Ms. Kathy Keyser (Ravenswood’s Director of Contracts & Procurement) and Mr. Rob DeGaine (Senior Program Manager). “You have to be there with our customers to help them know what you are working on that could benefit them,” says DeGaine.
