What we do

We analyse problems and then generate the requirements that any solution to the problem has to meet. These requirements may be completely internal to the project but many such solutions have external implications that need to be addressed.

Throughout the analysis process we will evaluate options and parts of options through modelling and in the construction and test of hardware if required to validate a conclusion.
