Quanterion Solutions Incorporated was formed with a mission to provide high quality QUANTitative technical services and tools to be used as critERION for critical decision making and processes, hence the name Quanterion. Since its beginning in 2000, the company’s technical reach has expanded considerably from the original reliability, maintainability and quality focus to now include:
- Reliability, Maintainability, and Quality (RMQ)
- Cybersecurity & Information Assurance
- Software Development/Engineering
- Information Technology (IT)/Internet of Things (IoT)
- Information/Knowledge Management
Quanterion’s success is the result of the company’s commitment to excellence in providing sound technical solutions to complex challenges in research and application for government, commercial, transportation, and energy markets.
Quanterion has been very successful in its technical collaboration with large and small industrial/commercial and educational institutions on quick-reaction tasks as well as long term technical “partnerships.” These activities are carried out under “non-disclosure agreements” and other similar agreements.
The range and depth of Quanterion’s technical expertise have also been clearly demonstrated through its breadth of government technical work such as its long time leadership ofthe DoDInformation Analysis Centers (IACs). These technical centers of excellence each provide a centralized knowledge center for the user community to obtain scientific and technical information (STI) related to specific technologies). Quanterion has received “exceptional” performance ratings from the government for its operation of these centers.
Quanterion has more than forty years in operating multi-technology data/information centers providing expertise, publications, training and consulting services to government and industry:
- Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC)
- Addressing reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability (RMQSI).
- RMQSI Knowledge Center
- Addressing reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability.
- Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC)
- Addressing software engineering, cybersecurity, modeling & simulation, and knowledge management/information sharing.
- Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS)
- Addressing software engineering and information technology.
- Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center (HDIAC)
- Addressing homeland defense, critical infrastructure protection, weapons of mass destruction, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) defense, biometrics, medical, cultural studies and alternative energy.
- Defense Threat Reduction Information Analysis Center (DTRIAC)
- Addressing Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) and CBRN.
In addition to the operation of technical information centers, Quanterion performs commercial, defense and other government R&D and support projects for large and small customers on both an on-going and ad hoc basis. Many staff are certified and well-published in their various technical fields, having authored numerous journal articles, white papers and technical reports on topics ranging from software engineering best practices and DoD network architecture requirements to materials compatibility issues and documented explosive events. Additional works include the development of web-based reliability tools for training and data/model access, the development of extensive reliability failure rate data publications and failure rate models and network Certification and Accreditation (C&A) under the Risk Management Framework (RMF), Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The company’s publications, tools and databases are widely used by government and industry practitioners.
The company has extensively expanded its research and development work for government and industry in recent years in such current critical technologies as Internet of Things (IoT), managed cloud services, mobile application development, and cybersecurity. This includes research performed under contract to various Department of Defense research organizations, as well as the company’s participation in the Open-Architecture, Resilient IoT for Operational Networks (ORION) ecosystem at the Innovare Advancement Center (https://www.innovare.org). Current research in these areas includes the development of a Secure IoT Operational Planning Environment (SIoTOPE) and an IoT onboarding and Testing as a Service (TaaS) capability.
Quanterion has developed many techniques/processes that are available in software tools, publications and standards for government and industry that are widely accepted and used worldwide. See a list of engineering data tools for more information.
