For over 20 years MTSI professionals have supported the U.S. Air Force with engineering and expertise on its emerging and most important programs. Today, over 135 MTSI professionals deliver solutions to the Air Force’s toughest challenges in the missions of air, space, and cyberspace. Our Air Force customers have come to know MTSI for being there when it counts – whether it involved the engineering and test of the nation’s most capable and most classified aerospace fleets, or solving the toughest systems engineering & integration (SE&I) challenges encountered in the program offices of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) and Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
MTSI capabilities exist to lead-turn the USAF’s engineering and technical challenges and deliver effective solutions where our less capable and less agile competitors fall short. Our Flight Test business unit of over nearly 90 engineers and analysts, including 40 Test Pilot School graduates, in Nevada, Arizona, and California have planned and conducted test and evaluation on a wide range of manned aircraft, one-of-a-kind prototype systems, payload sensor systems, and unmanned systems. Exemplar systems include B-2, F-35, F-15, A-10, HAVE BLUE, AGM-129A Advanced Cruise Missile, AGM-158 joint air-to-surface standoff missile (JASSM), Miniature Air Launch Decoy (MALD), Global Hawk, Predator, and the Airborne Laser Lab (ABL). Having established a strong reputation in electronic warfare and low observable technologies, MTSI expertise is often sought-after as a first-choice provider.
MTSI’s acquisition experts and systems engineers include 71 graduates of the Defense Acquisition University program management course, and 39 hold a Level III program management certification. These astute professionals support multiple program offices with innovative solutions for the AFLCMC at Wright-Patterson AFB as well as Space and Missile Center (SMC) in Los Angeles, Colorado Springs, and Albuquerque. For example, our development and deployment of a remote-access requirements traceability capability for the KC-46 aircrew and maintenance training systems provides the government with unprecedented requirements insight through a budget-conscious solution. Similarly, our systems engineering and analysis support on several space prototype systems, including the Commercially Hosted Infrared Payload (CHIRP), helps prove the viability of emerging technologies, techniques, and procedures. Helping the Air Force advance space operations with new technology, MTSI software developers and space experts are also assisting in the design, development, and integration of the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) Mission System (JMS). This system provides space situational awareness and command and control of space forces. Furthermore, our internally-funded solar flare prediction modeling brings our customers new solutions and capability to effectively delivering space-based capabilities.
In support of cyberspace, MTSI Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP) and cyber analysts provide the Air Force with support across the acquisition life cycle, including requirements analysis, planning & execution, threat identification & mitigation, hardware assurance, and software assurance. MTSI is also working closely with Air Force leadership on understanding and testing the value proposition and cost savings of implementing keyless signature infrastructure (KSI)-based digital signature/timestamp systems to protect electronic data.
