Avaliant applies systems engineering discipline to help our customers successfully conceptualize, specify, architect, analyze, design, develop and deploy complex systems. The Avaliant team offers a unique combination of breadth in systems engineering experience across a wide range of multi-discipline commercial and government programs; depth of technical expertise in several critical technical fields; and management experience ranging from small project teams to large program organizations. Our core strengths include systems engineering, system modeling and simulation, networking, wireless communication, satellite systems, software development, and program management.

Our goal is to help our customers achieve success by leveraging our skills to solve their most challenging problems. We work with our customers in a number of ways, including: integrating as team-members within their organization; managing teams, projects or programs for our customers; operating as a separate self-managed team; or through more ad hoc relations as advisors, facilitators and reviewers. We enjoy what we do - and we believe we do it well.
