Employee technology to solve warfighter needs


Easier. Faster. These client needs are the driving forces behind our Systems Engineering & Model Based Systems Engineering services. At JHNA we apply our combined expertise as warfighters and engineers to source solutions to our clients' most complex systems. It's this unique dual perspective that allows us to strategically apply our methodologies and processes to challenges and opportunities across the systems engineering process, resulting in solid software solutions.

Clarify the need

In the early stages of systems engineering, our work centers around clarifying the end user’s need, evaluating possible technologies to implement the solution, and identifying additional technology roles and applications.

Systems Development

Once we are confident in the need, our consultants begin systems development, sourcing components from science and engineering. This may take the form of developing software from scratch or replicating open architecture, depending on the challenge at hand.

It is during the development phase that we judge the technology's application in a war fight and evaluate its outcome. Our JHNA consultants will depict how a potential solution might work, creating a graphical representation of the system in an operational environment, clarifying requirements and metrics to ensure the eventual design meets the specific user needs, and establish key system and operational views and event trace architecture.

During the engineering and manufacturing development phase, JHNA ensures the user-defined capability is represented in modeling and simulation, system specifications, and system design. We identify capability gaps in the modeling and design documents and guide the technical development process through requirements decomposition, risk management, and trade study execution.

Production and Deployment

When a system enters the production and deployment phase, JHNA's focus turns to developing a comprehensive test plan for system and subsystems, including tests that will ensure critical requirements are measured and verified. As production and testing occur, we incorporate results back into the requirements and design phase to optimize system capability.

On-going Support

During the operations and support phase of system development, our JHNA consultants will continue to fine tune solutions. We develop fielding plans, assist with system upgrades, help develop training programs that optimize system use, and facilitate hardware and software training and integration.

JHNA’s end-to-end system development support ensures the system stays responsive to warfighter needs and within the realm of engineering capability.

Our Systems Engineering Services help clients:

Focus on early acquisition activities, such as requirements definition, development planning, and early acquisition systems engineering support

Lead multi-functional teams to provide broad-scoped support assessments to identify and reduce risks

Evaluate milestones and determine program impact

Identify and implement systems engineering best practices

Assess program data and make correction recommendations when appropriate
