Lifecycle Management

Riverside Research provides full lifecycle management support to weapons systems and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) programs. Our multi-disciplinary team of experts, many of whom are certified by the Defense Acquisition University (DAU), comprises engineers, acquisitions and operations subject matter experts, logisticians, maintainers, program managers, and test pilots. Our teams have extensive experience with defense and intelligence community systems acquisition processes to include proof-of-concept analysis and development at pre-milestone A (MS-A); technical data analysis (e.g. Capabilities-based Assessments) and engineering recommendations to support MS-B decision; and development, testing and evaluation, and design reviews required for production, deployment, and sustainment studies through MS-C.

Riverside Research supports a wide range of programs across a variety of mission areas. We support the development and operation of some of the most advanced radar systems deployed for ballistic missile technical collection, ballistic missile defense, and space situational awareness missions. Riverside Research also supports an Air Force rapid acquisition program focused on manned and unmanned ISR systems and is a key contributor to the quick development and deployment of critical platforms for certain foreign operations.

From concept and requirements definition through formal testing, independent verification and validation, deployment, sustainment, and eventual service life extension or system modernization/upgrade, Riverside Research is a proven partner to the US government.
