Infinity Labs in late 2020 landed a trio of research contracts for work in the Air Force’s exploration of new flying vehicles, a project called “Agility Prime.”

Jason Molnar, Infinity Labs co-founder and chief strategy officer, told the Dayton Daily News in 2020 that with the award of a Phase I contract, the Air Force was giving Infinity Labs an opportunity to tackle research and development in its exploration of vehicles sometimes called “flying cars.”

More recently, in November, the business announced plans for a $25 million “world class R&D and prototyping facility in Dayton,” at 118 E. Fourth St., dubbed the “Power House.”

Infinity Labs had applied for $1.5 million in funding for the project through the Dayton Region Priority Development & Advocacy Committee.

“One of Jason’s key personality traits was his passion for leadership and training especially for those who may lack experience but had a desire to lead. Jason excelled at leadership. He breathed mentorship. He made others better and those that worked for him revered him,” the company said on its recent LinkedIn message.
