The SI relies on modeling and simulation to support our analysis activities. Due to the complex nature of the systems we evaluate, it is essential to simulate interactions and dependencies to fully understand how these systems will perform in an operational context.
The SI leverages:
- Proprietary simulators recognized as the standard within their field by our customer community
- A highly-technical workforce with deep domain experience, equipped with the creativity and software development skills to accurately and efficiently develop applications to meet the unique needs of the mission
- A skilled team fluent in the latest software technologies that develops innovative applications to improve our systems engineering and integration methods and enhance the visualization and communication of complex information
Developing models creates a simplified representation of a system at a particular point in time or space to promote understanding of the real system.
A simulation is defined as the manipulation of a model in such a way that it operates on time or space to compress it, thus enabling one to perceive the interactions that would not otherwise be apparent because of their separation in time or space.
Application software, also known as an application or an “app,” is computer software designed to help the user perform singular or multiple related specific tasks. Application software is contrasted with system software and middleware, which manage and integrate a computer's capabilities, but typically do not directly apply them in the performance of tasks that benefit the user. The SI provides the expertise to define requirements, architect, design and develop value-added applications for your enterprise.
Business intelligence software is a type of application software designed to report, analyze and present data with the purpose of providing relevant data in an appropriate context to facilitate the decision making process. The tools generally read data that have been previously stored, often, though not necessarily, in a data warehouse or data mart.
Our advanced conceptualization and visualization offering utilizes a combination of multi-touch applications and virtual reality for presenting data and information in formats that aid in highlighting the important aspects of the data, conveying particular messages, and allow the interpretation of large amounts of data quickly and easily.
Data, information and knowledge management requires the collection and management of information from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to one or more audiences. The SI’s data, information and knowledge management service provides our customer with the ability to manage, transfer and share their information safely and securely.
