National Security

ARA delivers robust and innovative solutions for our clients and for our communities: solutions that help secure our world.

ARA has a long history of helping government agencies and laboratories innovate to protect and defend U.S. interests. Our roots began in military support in 1979, simulating and analyzing weapons effects and developing new weapon systems to increase our forces’ technological superiority. With modeling and simulation at our core, ARA has grown to comprise a broad array of research and development capabilities designed to protect facilities, enhance warfighter effectiveness, and save lives.

Our workforce includes subject matter experts (SMEs) nationally recognized for their one-of-a-kind, deep technical expertise.  Our operational/application SMEs come from across government agencies and military services, ensuring we understand the unique operating environments in which our clients work. This practical operational awareness, combined with an in-depth knowledge of physical and cognitive sciences, allows us to develop improved technology and creative solutions our clients need to achieve their objectives.

We help our customers address current homeland security demands and prepare for complex, multidimensional national and global threats of the future.

ARA has a proven history of meeting Warfighter requirements through our disciplined Systems Engineering processes that merge proven hardware and software development techniques with nationally-recognized weapon system expertise.
