Service Experience:

WROCI Contract: On WROCI, InDyne engineers perform capacity planning and engineering analysis to meet technological challenges for future improvements to Range networks. Our network systems engineers analyze, design, and evaluate new network architectures using our standard engineering lifecycle process for implementation of new and modernization of current networks ensuring the critical data flow is not compromised. InDyne network engineers are responsible for router and configuration management, service request engineering, and for providing design and engineering support for new network service requests by 30th Space Wing (SW), Vandenberg AFB, and other Range customers. WROCI engineers have received numerous accolades from customers for their success including highly complex projects such as the Range Engineering Improvement Initiative for an Asynchronous Transfer Mode proof of concept.

ETTC Contract: On our ETTC contract, InDyne provides engineering support to ground test facilities including the McKinley Climatic Laboratory, the Guided Weapons Evaluation Facility, the Aerospace Vehicle Survivability Facility, the Joint-Preflight Integration of Munitions and Electronic Systems Facility, the Landing Gear Test Facility, and the Seeker Test and Evaluation Facility. InDyne provides similar support to the US Navy’s (USN) Shallow Water Mine Counter-measures surf zone test facility, the Navy Mine Roller Test Track, and littoral test and training areas for USN’s Landing Craft Air Cushioned hovercraft. InDyne has supported ETTC High Power Microwave tests for various Directed Energy customers including the USN.


Services Experience:

ALATEC has developed and delivered significant modeling and simulation and analysis support services over the past three years. As the prime contract support to the Training and Doctrine Command Analysis Center, ALATEC has developed several data manipulation tools and has led development of the Combat Analysis Tool for the 21st Century (COMBATXXI). ALATEC also provides support to TRAC in the use and One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) simulation and assists in the execution of studies and wargames and resulting analysis. ALATEC also provides simulation support to the Fires Center of Excellence where we provide development support to the FireSIM XXI proponent and to the Mission Simulation Center for simulation development and the execution of Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation (JCATS) suite.

All Points Logistics

Services Experience:

Services Experience:
AEHF Contract: LM’s Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) Satellite Systems Mission Control Segment (MCS) project. AEHF was one of the top three programs assessed by the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) as Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 5, enabling LM in 2005 to become the first company in the world to achieve this rating. AEHF follows rigorous disciplined processes defined in the program System Engineering Management Plan. LM used trade studies to define and evolve MCS architecture and migrate MCS to a single relational database eliminating commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) in targeted areas. All systems were delivered on-time or ahead of schedule. All MCS equipment was developed using the same architecture-based design process in place for the systems and software engineering. The 168 delivered systems included 54 racks of equipment containing hundreds of major COTS, Government off-the-shelf (GOTS), and Government furnished equipment (GFE) products delivered to 15 sites.

MEI Technologies

Service Experience:

ESES Contract: MEIT provides mission systems engineering in support of scientific payloads. MEIT’s engineering activity begins with initial concept development and extends through design and development to launch and post-flight activities. We work with principal investigators from the first concept stages to identify and analyze requirements necessary for the payload to meet mission objectives. Following classic system engineering disciplines, we allocate requirements to payload subsystems and implement a series of design reviews at key milestones before proceeding to the development phase of the project. We implement configuration management and controls from the first baseline definition to provide clear end-to-end requirements traceability and to support verification and validation activities.
Bioastronautics Contract: On the Bioastronautics Contract MEITs employees, in the Flight Hardware Departments’ function is to provide engineering support to various on-going flight hardware developments. The engineering support provided by MEIT for this work includes but is not limited to establishing operational concepts for ground testing and flight deployment, reviewing project and programmatic requirements, participating in the design, manufacturing and assembly of flight and ground support hardware, reviewing and participating in test protocols, assisting in the procurement of flight hardware and the logistics required for assembly and test and participating in the certification of the hardware for use aboard the International Space Station and/or launch vehicle. These job functions l require understanding and compliance to JSC/NASA and Bioastronautics Contract work instructions. These job functions will require the development and tracking of controlled paperwork throughout the development process. Employees will be required to present at design reviews.
DHEP Contract: On the DHEP Contract, our primary focus is to take DoD and other national agency experiments through the Systems Engineering process required for manned-spaceflight. This includes a myriad of ICD's that need to be defined, then verified throughout the process by MEIT engineers. If a mission is repeated, we also make adjustments requiring re-design (alterations) or adjust to changing interfaces on the NASA side of an interface. Part of the systems process that we support both with experiments and NASA is environmental testing. We have used NASA, other government agency, and subcontractor facilities for environmental testing; We have also developed all associated test plans, procedures, criteria, reports (including discrepancies). If there is a need to change established processes, our experience allows for adjusting processes as is necessary.
AMCOM Contract: Provide Navy Test and Evaluation Program Development support to the Navy Joint Air to Ground Missile System (JAGM). Provide T&E expertise in the development, coordination, scheduling and funding of T&E strategies to the JAGM T&E IPT lead in support of the JAGM System Integrated Baseline Review (IBR). Assist in identification of issues and recommend solutions to the T&E IPT lead. Support review and coordination of T&E crosswalks/test matrices of performance and capability of plans to system requirements. Support review of requirements and traceability of design for conducting system integration and interoperability tests and demonstrations. Analysis of and provide comments to the Test and Evaluation Program Plan (TEPP).
