Physics-based modeling & simulation is one of the core capabilities on which ARA was founded more than 35 years ago. Since then, our M&S tools and experience have enhanced decision-making, product development, testing, and training for defense applications and national security, the transportation community, the medical and life sciences industry, and emergency management professionals. We complement our custom M&S tools with an expansive suite of government- and commercial-off-the-shelf software. In addition, we leverage our planning tool codes to the highest extent possible to develop highly reusable, extensible, and scalable codes.

These are some of the areas where ARA’s M&S solutions are making an impact:

National Security— We provide high-fidelity simulations that support decision making for weapons engineering, blast characterization, and force protection for defense agencies and others in the public and private sectors. Our virtual battlefield exercise models are also used by police and emergency responders for training in disaster situations and event scenarios and to simulate evacuation routes for homeland defense training.

Infrastructure— ARA’s M&S tools and proprietary software provide highly accurate, cost-effective alternatives to large-scale tests in forensics, crashworthiness and impact analysis, structural characterization and fire.

Health Solutions— Our physiological and computational models and simulation products are aiding in the evaluation of new drugs and delivery devices, assisting in research programs, and providing immersive medical education and training.

Environment— ARA integrates proprietary modeling and industry-leading research to model and simulate risks associated with extreme events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, storm surge and coastal flooding for catastrophe risk management.
