Systems Engineering

Riverside Research supports the full lifecycle of systems engineering through the needs and requirements management, design, development, integration, testing, fielding, maintenance, and transition of government systems. Our systems engineering team supports a myriad of government programs and are demonstrated experts in scientific study design and experimentation; technical analysis and training; needs management; system and subsystem requirements definition; testing and evaluation; modeling and simulation; integration support; technology design, development, procurement and transition; and maintenance and sustainment. In addition to assisting our customers with operational and systems requirements, Riverside Research develops new technologies and applies lessons learned to help our clients assess and plan for future program needs.

We have a deep understanding of engineering requirements for technology development, trade studies, proof-of-concept demonstrations, agile and quick reaction capability (QRC) development, and systems integration and fielding. This experience is evidenced by our support to programs such as the Technical Sensor Radar Support (TSRS) program, the US Air Force’s (USAF) Airborne Cueing and Exploitation System-Hyperspectral (ACES-HY), and a variety of USAF unmanned aircraft systems, in addition to our work supporting national and intelligence community systems. Our success with these programs is due in large part to our experience working across platforms, ground systems, associated exploitation elements, logistics support entities, responsible test organizations, and operational customers. We also understand the need to apply proven systems engineering methodologies while tailoring those to best suit the system and mission environment.

With systems engineering certifications through the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and professional certifications from the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), our experts apply interdisciplinary approaches to enable the realization of highly complex systems through the combination of demonstrated knowledge, strong technical education, and employing and tailoring industry best practices relevant to customer missions.
