What We Do

BFA Systems, Inc. provides support to various programs in the area of interoperability. Interoperability is one of the keys to successful missions in the battlefield. We strive to provide a comprehensive understanding of what the information exchange requirements will be between two or more different systems. This includes, but not limited to, track support information such as target position and identification attributes, engagement support information such as command to slew and requests for support, initialization information such as what modes to operate in and what communications paths to utilize, and status information such as operational status and logistical status. In addition, BFA Systems, Inc provides support in the development of requirements for common components. The development of common components is a step toward achieving battlefield interoperability.

Complex modern systems are designed, built, and tested with help from various computer models and simulations. Many physical processes and phenomena can now be modeled or simulated very effectively using specifically designed computer programs, but before they can be “trusted” for use in testing a developmental system, they themselves must be “verified” and “validated”. Since models and simulations are created based upon specific requirements, the requirements can be used as evaluation criteria for the model/simulation. That process is called Verification and determines “Was the model built right?” Validation, on the other hand, is the process of putting the model/simulation through its paces and determining “Was the right model built?”, which is to say does it produce results that are consistent with the physical processes or phenomena that are represented? BFA Systems supports the Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) with V&V activities to support the testing of several Ballistic Missile Defense Systems under development today.

Systems Engineering provides a system solution balancing capability needs, design considerations and constraints, as well as limitations imposed by technology, budget, and schedule. The Systems Engineering process is applied early in concept definition, and then continuously throughout the total life cycle.

Program / Acquisition Management is the management of a program / product throughout its life cycle, that is from concept through disposal (cradle-to-grave). Cost, schedule, and performance must be closely monitored during design, development and fielding to ensure that any technical adjustments allow the project to continue and still stay with schedule and budget. Management is responsible for planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and leading the combined efforts of all personnel throughout the system life cycle.
