Our engineering expertise spans across the full system lifecycle, starting from early studies and prototypes to full system implementation, deployment, operations, and sustainment.
We provide robust systems engineering services that enable the realization of successful space and ground systems while ensuring that critical relationships between program scope, schedule, cost, and quality are effectively maintained. Our multidisciplinary engineering teams can adapt standard systems engineering frameworks and tailor and blend methodologies to address our clients’ unique requirements.
We’ve spent the last two decades designing and implementing cutting-edge software systems on platforms ranging from small embedded controllers to enterprise cloud solutions.
We provide custom software design and development services that leverage next-generation high-performance computing paradigms to deliver optimized solutions for unique, mission-critical requirements. Our software engineering capabilities span the range from enterprise services to driver development, and cover all stages of all the software life cycle, including architecture and design, implementation, and integration and testing.
Our system integration, verification and validation capabilities range from individual instruments and spacecraft to system-of-systems integration across site, platform, and agency boundaries.
We've successfully managed integration and test activities across the full mission lifecycle, spanning the range from component- and subsystem-level tests to operational rehearsals, launch and early orbit testing. We're experienced with the development, deployment, and operation of simulators and testbeds, as well as the utilization of automated requirements management and verification frameworks.
Our project and program management expertise ranges from small proof-of-concept and technology demonstration efforts to flagship long-term, multi-billion-dollar government programs.
Our expertise enables a consistent and controlled approach to project execution that effectively delivers tangible value to stakeholders while ensuring that project performance objectives are satisfied. By leveraging multi-disciplinary teams, we are able to provide support in a range of areas, including policy and technology governance, inter-agency coordination, and technology acquisition.
We internationally recognized leaders in the interpretation and implementation of space communications standards and reference architectures.
Through our work with the global CCSDS community, we have consistently acted as leaders in the interoperability arena, working cross the global civil space community to provide support for effective cross-agency protocol and data interoperability.
We are experts at assessing customer requirements and performing proof-of-concept prototyping to mitigate implementation risk, validate technical approaches, and reduce time-to-market.
We have been instrumental in supporting numerous concept and feasibility studies for government agencies as well as commercial enterprises, acting to demonstrate new technologies, mitigate future implementation risks, and assure clients and partners of the feasibility of proposed system architectures and mission objectives.
We are experts at rapid implementation of new technology prototypes to demonstrate the feasibility of designs to meet mission-critical requirements.
We’ve successfully developing a full spectrum of cutting-edge prototype capabilities using platforms ranging from embedded controllers to enterprise cloud solutions.
We are experts in architecting and managing the transition of legacy on-premises capabilities to next-generation, cloud-based implementations.
Working with stakeholders, we develop cloud architecture concepts, identify the key challenges and technology trade-offs involved in migrating mission-critical systems, and develop requirements and procurement specifications for cloud infrastructure and software elements necessary to transition to a fully cloud-based enterprise.
The world of segregated, siloed data systems and stand-alone data centers is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
The solutions we architect today are designed around the full scalability of high-performance clusters and cloud architectures, ensuring that mission systems can easily accommodate new users, address surges and crises, and reduce lifetime maintenance cost and hardware obsolescence risks.
Any mission-critical asset must be built to ensure resiliency against communications outages, site downtime, and component failures.
By leveraging multiple different architectural features, including component- and subsystem-level redundancy, automated system state assessment and fail-over, and system/site segregation, we can ensure that critical systems remain operational no matter the circumstances.
Security is at the forefront of our technology design mindset.
We aim to leverage a full suite of security best practices, ranging from static source code analysis to comprehensive vulnerability assessments, security control implementation reviews, and DFARS 252.204-7012 cybersecurity compliance, to ensure that every system is ready to meet both statutory cybersecurity requirements and day-to-day operational security needs.
We believe in designing for ease of usability from the ground up.
Working with experts in UI/UX design, technology accessibility, and human-machine interface modeling, we ensure that systems are easy and intuitive to use, minimizing training time, reducing the risk of user error, and allowing users to quickly and effectively transition systems to operation.
