Technology Transition

Ryan Marceau Ryan is a member of the Business Strategy Group and Senior Scientist at Aptima, Inc. Ryan is an experienced commercial Product Manager with a background in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. As a Senior Scientist, he manages and contributes to multiple projects aimed at defining performance requirements, designing training, developing performance measurement systems, and evaluating the effectiveness of training systems.

Specifically, he has worked extensively with the United States Marine Corps (USMC) on multiple projects involving the design and implementation of digital applications for training measurement and performance assessment across multiple domains. Several of these efforts leveraged and applied Aptima’s SPOTLITE® performance assessment tool to USMC training environments, including the Infantry Immersion Trainer (IIT), USMC IED Defeat Mobile Training Teams (MTT), and USMC School of Infantry (SOI) Infantry Unit Leaders Course. Products of these efforts are now being leveraged to develop commercial applications of SPOTLITE across Medical and Law Enforcement domains.
