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

The Problem

• Difficulty recruiting recent graduates in the following fields to Northrop Grumman (NG)– Computer Engineers– Computer Scientists– Electrical Engineers

• Competition:

Client’s Proposed 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

Metrics for Success

• Deliver a prototype that our client is happy with

• Guest testing survey results:– Does the experience accomplish our goals?

Last Presentation

• Presented RTS game• Some of the recurring Feedback:

– Need to better understand target demographic– Its not clear the gameplay we showed will be engaging– Focus on making the products sound/look way cool.

Addressing Faculty Feedback

• Researched NG’s recruiting practices and results– Narrowed target demographic

• Created surveys NG new hires

Progress Since 1/4

• New idea– Interactive Virtual Product Tour

• NG employee interviews• Storyboard

– Client only had positive feedback

• Implemented 1 “path”

Demo

Project Schedule

Guest Testing

• Testing at several development stages • Testing with:

– Engineering students– ETC students

• Procedure:– Let the guest take the tour– Brief questionnaire

Risks

• Hollywood has tainted our perception of what is possible

• Lack of knowledge regarding NG and their industry

• Getting really good interviews that we can build the experience around

We Could Use Help With…

• Sound• UI/game design feedback• Flash programming• Making professional quality videos
