Technology Solutions

IST Technology Solutions provide technical and mission support services, and product development/delivery to US Government and commercial sector clients.  We deliver subject matter expert-level capabilities to enhance mission and enterprise operations through data analysis, intelligence analysis, mission management, and technology insertion.

Our specialized laboratory facilities support the development of advanced technology solutions across advanced materials, advanced textiles, chemical processing, electromechanical systems, and systems engineering/integration domains. In addition to developing and integrating technical products, we work closely with our customers to develop and establish supply chains capable of meeting their needs past LRIP.

As the principle developers and maintainers of core AFSIM source code, Infoscitex is the main developer and master integrator of AFSIM and its core capabilities.  IST develops and applies the AFSIM framework in support of various mission objectives for Air Force, Navy and Joint sponsored initiatives.


Along with our extensive specialized communications modeling, IST can develop new model capabilities, data rich displays, and adaptable interfaces to meet your organization’s modeling and simulation requirements for sensors, communication, aircraft, and space assets as well as other emerging technologies ranging from kinematic weapons to cyber warfare.

IST produces broadly reaching scenarios derived from intelligence sourced data combined with representations of present day to cutting-edge future concepts.  These concepts are portrayed with a wide array of behaviors, responses, and orders of battle in order to fulfill your organization’s AFSIM modeling requirements for the evolving battlefield reaching beyond a single scope of effectiveness and into multi-domain coordinated capabilities.

IST can create custom AFSIM applications to meet a variety of growing requirements. Applications such as Warlock which provides an interactive game-like experience for AFSIM and the P6DOF Mover Creator used to expedite and simplify the creation of high fidelity models for existing and future aircraft are examples of products produced by IST.

IST will meet your organization’s needs for military utility and effectiveness analysis through the use of a variety of techniques with a basis in design of experiments methodologies in conjunction with AFSIM’s flexible script based input and user defined output to examine vast trade spaces across a myriad of existing and emerging equipment, concepts, actions, and settings.

IST employees literally created AFSIM and with over 10 years of AFSIM experience, IST will make AFSIM work for you with our custom training modules.


AFSIM Training Opportunities
