  1. Northrop Grumman Project Team: Lucas Machado Shaochun Lin David Allen Asif Yusaf Gaurav Shrivastava Advisors: Josh Yelon & Jess Trybus

  2. Who is Northrop Grumman? • 3rd largest defense contractor in the US • Integrated Systems Division (formerly Aircraft Division): • Air combat systems • Unmanned systems • Airborne air & ground surveillance systems • Airborne battle management systems • Airborne electronic warfare systems

  3. The Problem • Difficulty recruiting recent engineering graduates to Northrop Grumman (NG) • Competition

  4. The Solution • Create a game to increase interest in NG and its products • Excellent medium for target demographic • Quick insight into what NG does • More engaging than pamphlets • Increasing interest in the industry is enough

  5. The ETC’s Role • Prototype a recruiting game for Integrated Systems Division • Provide insight as to how the prototype can be further developed and expanded to all the divisions within NG • Working with Mark Conger (Project Manager, Video Game Technology Project)

  6. Metrics for Success • Deliver a prototype that Mark is happy with • Guest Testing Results: • Who does NG employ? • Does it give you a feeling of patriotism? • Do you think NG’s work is meaningful? • Does it make you want to know more about NG and/or their industry?

  7. Progress • Client visit in LA • Brainstorming and storyboards • Freezing on an idea and platform (Flash)

  8. Game Should Show: • Integrated Systems makes technologies work well together • The work done at NG is important and meaningful • NG employees build cool “toys” and work with the most advanced technologies • The “toys” aren't built magically

  9. Restrictions • Can’t kill people • Can’t be ridiculously inaccurate • Can’t misrepresent NG & their products • Focus on Integrated Systems division

  10. Story-boards

  11. Desktop

  12. Project Schedule

  13. Guest Testing • Testing at several development stages: • High school students • Engineering students • ETC students • Guest Testing Results: • Who does NG employ? • Does it give you a feeling of patriotism? • Do you think NG’s work is meaningful? • Does it make you want to know more about NG and/or their industry?

  14. Risks • Hollywood has tainted our perception of what is possible • Client doesn’t know exactly what they want • Lack of knowledge regarding NG and their industry

  15. We Could Use Help With… • Sound • UI/game design feedback • Flash programming

  16. Thanks!
