Systems Engineering and Integration
Wired and Wireless Surveillance and Security Systems

ARA provides system engineering and integration services for software and hardware development programs as well as research and development programs.

Our systems engineering process is based on standard Department of Defense practice, but makes extensive use of value-based modeling methods, physics-based analysis, and modeling and simulation.

Our analytical tools and in-house subject matter expertise can identify key technology gaps and integration issues far upstream.

We have the technical expertise to design detailed specifications that will meet requirements as well as define scientific, engineering, and test programs to fill technology gaps.

We apply our methods to individual systems and systems of systems at the project and agency level. We perform Analyses of Alternatives (AoA) Studies, Modeling and Simulation, Operations Research and Program Management Support.
