Solving the toughest warfighter challenges through our technology and engineering expertise

We leverage our prior military experience to identify and deliver cost-effective warfighter solutions.

JHNA consultants don't shy away from tough challenges. As former warfighters, we have endured the obstacles facing our military today, applying and focusing that expertise on developing practical, sustainable technology and engineering solutions.

Our reputation is that of the firm with unmatched subject matter experts who the solve the most difficult problems.  Our consultants provide decades of ground and aviation experience, both in combat employing infantry & aviation task forces, through to the halls of the Pentagon shaping the HQDA and OSD future years defense programs. 

JHNA provides expertise and experience across every stage of the systems engineering process and every phase of the acquisition lifecycle. We help managers of complex technical problems align product designs with initial operational intent and end-to-end mission threads. We are relationship-builders, taking ownership of a problem to ensure that warfighters, acquisition professionals, program managers, software developers, and testers are unified in their vision.

We understand management-focused Software Engineering, Systems Engineering, Developmental Test & Evaluation, and Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and have decades of experience performing independent assessments to assess technical feasibility, alternate technology opportunities, technology refresh, technology insertion, interoperability, alignment and integration with relevant mission architectures, and consideration of operational mission requirements.

We bridge the gap between technology and our warfighter clients.

JHNA provides unparalleled expertise to the government in the exploration of innovative ways to employ various types of manned and unmanned aircraft systems with disparate capabilities, avionics and mission systems software, and survivability or lethality payloads, as part of DoD operations involving teamed engagement, force protection, and maneuver.  

we have strong capabilities in:

modeling and simulation

post-production software support

program management

developmental test and evaluation

technology transition.
