Systems Engineering

Bastion's Systems Engineering approach integrates other disciplines and specialty groups into a team effort, forming a structured development process that proceeds from concept to production to operation and disposal. Systems engineering solutions considers both the business and the technical needs of all customers, with the goal of providing a quality product that meets the users' needs. Our Systems Engineering capability is a key component to many of our customers’ challenges. For this reason, Bastion provides proven and unique concepts to address highly complex issues.

Our support in leading and coordinating the development and integration of complex designs and simulation capabilities requires engineers to support engineering studies, flight procedures, and crew training. Areas of emphasis typically include tracking and communications, robotics systems (prototype hardware and software development for intelligent systems automation), thermal systems, and structures and mechanics.
