Engineering Analysis

TriVector provides a multitude of services centering on engineering analysis to the majority of our Customers, who have praised the company for the expansive knowledge base and work ethic of its employees. Among our areas of analysis are: missile performance, concept vehicle performance, software/data timing, thermal, space environments, and reliability. We have performed these services on a number of past and current contracts, including NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) and Commercial Space ventures; Sierra Army Depot and the UAS Project Office for the U.S. Army; and for the Missile Defense Agency’s Ground-based Midcourse Defense (MDA – GMD).
