Modeling and Simulation


At ITC Defense Corp, our engineers continually pursue research into developing and maintaining modeling and simulation software systems. ITC is involved in collaborative research with our partners which is motivated by practical problems and work that concern our customers.  Through the use of innovative empirical software engineering and the development of software metrics to overcome metric weaknesses in object-oriented systems, ITC’s modeling and simulation engineers create innovative test generation algorithms, improve test generation algorithms and investigate ways of refactoring test code so that it is easier to maintain and update as system requirements change.  By investigating the use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) simulation modeling packages, ITC is instrumental in developing distributed simulation systems, as well as being responsible for developing new theories and methods for distributed software testing.

ITC’s modeling and simulation engineers provide our customers tangible benefits by saving on manpower and materials, allowing for testing when no other means are available, a more efficient way to provide fast, consistent answers all while increasing understanding of any process or system, ultimately providing cost savings to the customer.

ITC’s Modeling and Simulation Engineers design, specify, deploy and sustain Real Time Optimization systems (e.g. ROMeo), steady state and dynamic simulation systems (e.g. UNISIM), asset monitoring systems (e.g. Smart Perform), interface RTOs with Advanced Process Control (APC) and base layer control, provide troubleshooting and technical support for modeling and Real Time Optimization (RTO) systems, interact with staff engaged in delivery of services to customers to facilitate training and participate in delivering R&D engineering standards and best practices.
