Capabilities

 

Design, Analysis, & Prototyping

Designs begin with well defined customer requirements.  We leverage applied research as the foundation of our mechanical, thermal, and electrical designs to transform requirements into innovative solutions.  Each of these designs is backed by simulation and analysis of hardware loads representative of the intended environments.  We have the expertise to provide focused analyses from static structures to multi-physical, transient loads involving nonlinear materials.

Key Expertise

  • Munition Design

  • Shock Hardening and Isolation

  • Nonlinear Materials

  • Design for Shock and Vibration

  • Additive Manufacturing

  • Applied Research

  • Thermal Transients

  • Thermal Management of Electronics

  • Passive and Active Cooling 

Environmental Survivability

Warfighters operate in some of the harshest environments on Earth.  They rely on their hardware and tools to safely and efficiently complete their mission.  We use our expertise in weapon dynamics and military qualification to create robust hardware Warfighters can use, abuse, and rely on when they need it most. 

Key Expertise

  • MIL-STD-810, MIL-HDBK-310

  • MIL-STD-901

  • Shock and Vibration Systems

  • Material Properties and Temperature Effects

  • Seal Engineering and IPXX

  • Space Environments and Solder Fatigue

  • Pyroshock and Harsh Transients

  • LCEP Development

  • Weapon Dynamics

 

Instrumentation, Testing, and Evaluation

No design is complete without data and analysis that fully captures performance measured against hardware requirements. The saying goes, "Good data doesn't lie," and we believe good data tells the truth of hardware performance.  We transform test data into meaningful results by leveraging over 12 years experience in qualifying experimental military hardware using advanced instrumentation, data acquisition, and analysis techniques.  

Key Expertise
