Applied Research

Numerate Consultants has supplied support to applied research indirect fire ammunition, demolition equipments and warhead domains both directly and indirectly to the MOD.

Feasibility and Pre-Feasibility Studies

Before introducing new technology into new or existing systems the feasibility and impact has to be investigated. Feasibility and Pre-Feasibility Studies at the concept stage will reduce program risks and cost whilst maximising delivered system performance. Many of the current in service weapon systems were developed over 20 years ago and will require replacement or modification to improve integration with newer systems.

Our consultants and associates possess technical knowledge coupled with specialist experience gained either in the defence industry or the Armed Forces. We feel that this expertise qualifies Numerate Consultants to investigate the potential applications for existing and future technologies in combat systems.

Requirements: elicitation, definition, analysis and capture

Efficient delivery of today's complex and integrated weapon systems is dependent on effective management of user and system requirements. Our consultants identify core system requirements through communication with our clients and associated teams

We identify user expectations in terms of operational concepts and any constraints e.g. cost, interoperability, operational environments. The Armed Services domain knowledge of our consultants ranges across the three services giving us a requirements capture capability across the full spectrum of weapon systems.

Numerate Consultants promotes requirements capture as a key means of engineering a system from concept through to acceptance. Custom requirements databases are constructed that permit management, configuration and association of requirements identification, justification, analysis, approval, verification and validation.

Our consultants have been intimately involved in the generation of documents for Staff Requirements, User Requirements and System Requirements for a range of weapon systems, software and components.

System assessments; performance, safety, risk, verification and validation
