SRC reviews and evaluates the technical aspects of a project and manages the evolution of a system from initial concept to production.
SRC’s systems engineers lead product development, ensuring that system requirements are met in the intended environment throughout the system's planned lifecycle within the cost and schedule constraints of the project. We practice “big picture” thinking when making technical decisions, balancing the contributions of the many disciplines necessary for the design and development of a product (software, hardware, mechanical, etc.).
We provide full end-to-end systems engineering capabilities, partnering with our customers for early concept development, trade studies, and evaluation of candidate architectures. From there we work to solidify system architecture and derive sub-system designs and requirements from desired capabilities. We develop detailed models of the system to aid in evaluation of alternatives and to provide insight into the expected system utility. Finally, our system models and requirements are used to drive implementation, integration and test activities.
Through systems engineering, we produce a highly effective, compliant, manufacturable design in the face of opposing interests and multiple, sometimes conflicting, constraints.
Our systems engineers play a key role in leading the definition and allocation of requirements, development of the concept of operations (CONOPS) and resulting system architecture, defining boundaries, evaluating design tradeoffs, defining and assessing interfaces, and providing oversight of verification and validation activities. Our engineers combine innovative thinking and specialized tools like the Dynamic Object Oriented Requirements System (DOORS) and Enterprise Architect to lead the design, development and delivery of critical systems.
