Focused on delivering exceptional modification and digital upgrades from concept through lifecycle management

Our structural, avionic, and system engineers are a part of the process at every stage – specifying, designing, assembling, testing, and certification...working meticulously from the initial preparation right through to the delivery of the aircraft.

Digital Engineering Services

Our industry-proven, agile approach to modernizing and sustaining aircraft, using the latest digital methods, is essential to the future of both military and commercial aviation. Key focus areas include:

  • Reverse Engineering: converting legacy product definition into 3D technical data packages for reduced sustainment costs, cycle times, and impact due to obsolescence
  • Digital Thread: establishing a link between the most valuable datasets and the outcomes that matter most using modern Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) methods and tools
  • Digital Twin: creating and leveraging digital models of physical designs to reduce acquisition product development cycle times and enable conditioned-based maintenance outcomes


Our engineering team designs all levels of military and commercial aircraft modifications using state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools and techniques. Key focus areas include:

  • Prototype Designs: creating virtual and physical prototypes to ensure delivery of the best solutions in the shortest time
  • System Integrations: orchestrating multi-system integrations aimed at delivering new and/or extended life capabilities
  • Configuration Changes: modifying aircraft to the latest customer standards
  • Publications: producing both technical and maintenance publications to support modified designs


Our engineering analysis capabilities ensure that all systems components operate smoothly and perform as they should. Areas of analysis include:

  • Classic Structural Stress Analysis
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Damage Tolerance
  • Aerodynamic Load Analysis
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling
  • Failure Modes and Effect Analysis
  • Electrical Load, EMI / EMC (electromagnetic), and Antenna Conflict Analysis
