Modeling and Simulation

Performing high-fidelity, fast-time modeling and simulation that supports both early investment decisions and operational analysis

Federal agencies face significant obstacles when developing and maintaining high-cost, high-risk systems. By applying effective modeling and simulation, they can reduce risks, lower costs and gain insight into future system behavior. Noblis experts in modeling, simulation and visualization help government missions through every step of the process, from ingesting and analyzing high-volume data to creating high-fidelity, fast-time simulations and producing informative and compelling visualizations.

Our Offerings

Noblis delivers modeling, simulation and analysis of the government’s information and communications technology services under stress conditions. Our solutions help the government develop architectural solutions to ensure that all types of communications – audio, video, image and data – get through in times of emergency.

Noblis works on the cutting edge of technology to model tomorrow’s demands on land, air and space systems through machine learning, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and simulation.

Noblis develops tools and solutions that automate previously time-consuming manual processes for optimization and maintenance. We developed OptiSourceTM with maintenance availability and drydock optimization capabilities and tools which include decision support. Built on advanced modeling and simulation, OptiSource integrates stand-alone data sources and disparate files semantically into a comprehensive maintenance dashboard to deploy in existing and cloud IT environments. This automated and integrated decision-support tool enables data-driven decisions in a fraction of the time than it has previously taken to provide accurate information quickly for improving forecasting, scenario planning and overall fleet optimization and readiness.

Noblis creates tailored solutions that actively capture and solve stakeholder needs to transform legacy system engineering to model-based “digital twins” designed to support the system across the entire lifecycle.

Air Transportation Simulation Lab

Due to increased demand with the emergence of new airspace users, such as commercial space operators and unmanned aircraft systems, the National Airspace System (NAS) must consider enhancing or replacing legacy air traffic systems. Our Air Transportation Lab delivers the modeling, simulation and computing capabilities to understand the benefits and impacts these changes have on the NAS.
