Canvas is pleased to announce Jason Songy was recently awarded the Canvas Masterpiece Award – the highest honor a Canvas employee can receive.
Never shying away from any mission, Jason has proven countless times to be an asset to his MDA customer and to Canvas. With 25 years of DOD experience, including seven years as a Canvas Director, Jason manages all our MDA Technical, Engineering, Advisory, and Management Support (TEAMS) technical subcontracts. In addition to this role, Jason is a Senior Engineer at MDA where he leads a team to maintain the System Test and Requirements Tool (START) database and to develop the next major version (START 2.0).
With the unprecedented challenges of 2020, Jason took the initiative to leverage Area 220, the Canvas Innovation Lab, to work on a solution for the current version of the START database. Alongside members of Area 220 and his MDA team, Jason led the development of a web-based front end for START 2.0. When the customer viewed the prototype, they were ecstatic with the innovative solution Jason’s team developed.

These employee achievements serve as vital examples of our entire Canvas workforce which enables Canvas to be a true Masterpiece within the industry, the lives our of employees, and the community.
