G3 Systems, Inc., founded November 3, 1993, moved into the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (VTCRC) in 1995 when there were only four buildings in the park (there are 33 now)! “We moved into a small 300-square-foot interior office in the Garvin Innovation Center over 20 years ago and we are now the ninth oldest company in the park,” said Gordon G. Miller, CEO.

G3 Systems was established with the primary objective of supporting the mission critical needs of government, military, corporate, educational and non-profit customers. G3 expertise focuses on four primary categories: user interface design, software engineering, training development, and modeling and simulation.

G3’s solutions support military, federal, state, regional and local law enforcement agencies, military and commercial aviation clients, and healthcare. G3 has provided solutions for the U.S. Army Military Police School, FEMA, the National Guard and Joint Forces Command, as well as for the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD).

Their technology solutions are used in the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of vital energy sector facilities such as refineries, pipelines, storage farms and port-loading solutions with their innovative inspection processes, infrastructure management GIS, universal real-time sensor networks and cost-saving solar technologies.

“The availability of high speed connectivity offered by the VTCRC attracted us to the facility,” Miller said. “G3 started out as a technology consulting firm specializing in interactive multimedia design and education and training applications, website development and hosting. Thanks to our residence at the VTCRC, we were able to land our first government contract in 1996 quite by accident. That launched G3 into the training and multimedia in the government space.”

Miller helped launch Harmonia, Inc. in 1999, which was sold to investors in 2003 and still remains at the VTCRC. InteractiveGIS is another company that Miller helped start, and it shares space with G3.

From 1994 to 1997, G3 was recognized as winning three international design awards in Education Applications, Technical Training and Corporate Presentations. 

Some of their first clients were FedEx, MCI and Eastman Chemical Company. 

“I have always credited our early decision to be at the VTCRC as being instrumental in our success over the years,” Miller said. “Over the last 21 years of our time in business, G3 has saved over $1 billion for our clients and in the process realized over $40 million in sales. None of that would have been possible if it weren’t for the leadership and guidance offered by Joe Meredith, Ph.D., President, and the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center.”
