Modeling & Simulations

Defense Systems

Simulations has been involved with a series of U.S. DoD programs since 2003.

As a design, analysis, and materials development firm, our specialty is conceptualization, prototyping, and out-of-the-box innovation.

We perform non-linear implicit and explicit simulations daily using finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, 3D parametric automated modeling.

Our core expertise is from our decades of simulating and modeling:

  • Propulsion systems
  • Hypersonic projectiles
  • Interior ballistic response of integrated gun-launched guide projectiles
  • Rocket and missile structures
  • Electromagnetic railguns and components
  • In-flight aerodynamics and trajectories
  • Lightweight composite sabots
  • Aeroshell structures
  • Marine transport systems
  • Medical devices 

Our team and technologists have engineered, designed, and fabricated military defense components for:

  • The DoD
  • Army
  • Navy
  • Office of Naval Research
  • Strategic Capabilities Office
  • Medical devices
  • Military rotary and fixed-wing aircraft
  • Automotive components
  • Commercial off-the-shelf products
  • Customized diagnostics
  • Specialized tooling and molds
  • Composite materials.
