We use modeling as a way to create a virtual representation of a real-world system that includes software and hardware. When the software components of this model are driven by mathematical relationships, we can simulate the virtual representation under a wide range of conditions to see how it behaves.
Modeling and simulation (M&S) are especially valuable for testing conditions that might be difficult to reproduce—such as BMDS Flight Tests or load testing—especially in the early phase of the design process or when hardware may not be available. Leveraging modeling and simulation in the design and verification and validation phases of the systems engineering V-Model improves the quality of system design by reducing the number of errors found later.
From developing advanced algorithms and creating virtual test environments, to utilizing best-of-breed Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) M&S software packages and high fidelity, hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulations, our engineers are capable of employing a wide array of modeling and simulation tools for system performance analysis, test planning, and post-test analysis processes.
ITC capability highlights include:
- MATLAB, C++, Perl, STK
- Sensor and radar simulation Verification and Validation (V&V)
- Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) experience
- System scalability and load testing
