Autonomous Systems

Autonomous Systems is composed of ground, air, or sea-launched kinetic munitions that utilize on-board sensors, algorithms, and control methods to improve estimates on the target state, to understand the implications of the engagement situation/environment, or to develop engagement geometries that are otherwise unavailable to a conventional weapon.

Quanterion has teamed with AgentFly Technologies (AFT) of Prague, Czech Republic in supporting a natural extension of our current UAS experimentation work with Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, NY and extending it to the…  Read More


Product Reliability Online Tools Collection (PROTOCOL) is an online reliability knowledge base developed for the Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) under the DoD’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. It includes expert system features and advisers for decision-making, automated analysis tools, interactive tutorials and traditional knowledge content in the form of definitions, rules-of-thumb and lessons-learned.


Handbook of Software Reliability & Security Testing

Quanterion developed and published the “Handbook of Software Reliability and Security Testing”, a comprehensive manual developed for the DoD’s Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC).
The increasing complexity of modern systems, and systems-of-systems, is such that reliability considerations must extend beyond hardware, and include both software and human-machine interactions. This book specifically addresses software reliability and security, in terms of the reliability necessary to achieve the mission, the factors that influence the required reliability (e.g., customer expectations) and…  Read More

System Reliability Toolkit

Under the former Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC), Quanterion’s staff collaborated with the Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS) (another DTIC-sponsored IAC) to develop the System Reliability Toolkit, an update to the successful Reliability “Toolkit” series.  The previous toolkit publications predominantly had a hardware-based focus, while DoD systems had become increasingly software-intensive. The System Reliability Toolkit provides technical guidance in all aspects of system reliability, addressing both software reliability and human factors to better reflect the changing requirements of…  Read More


The Software Model Repository, an online database of software models, was initially developed by Quanterion during the operation of the DoD’s Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS) and was transitioned to the Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC). The objective of the SWMR effort is to collect, analyze and verify the existence and characteristics of software models for estimation, behavior, data, and object modeling to provide a centralized web-based repository that is accessible to researchers and…  Read More

Embedded Phoenix Code Base

Under this effort, Quanterion is providing AFRL expertise in applying the Phoenix architecture concepts and base code, currently a mix of Java and C++, to the Cognitive Processor (CogChip) in a careful and fully-documented way, such that the resulting embedded C++ code base supports fully military compliant deployment and operational utility as a component of the Content and Context-aware Router (C2TR) effort. The C2TR is a medium-term effort to provide a robust capability for military networks to support advanced information…  Read More
