Quanterion offers professional services and software that
provide QUANTitative critERION for critical decision-making:
Quanterion offers consulting, products and training opportunities that can help solve your RMQ challenges at any point in the life cycle of your product, process or service, beginning with requirements definition and compliance issues, through performance of life extension studies. Our RMQ consulting, product and training offerings directly address the depth of your organizational needs, starting at the Senior Management level, all the way down to the RMQ practitioner. Our consulting and training can be tailored to address and solve your specific RMQ needs.
Given the complexity and costs to develop and maintain today's software intensive business and application systems,
high quality software needs to be developed and maintained using the latest and best software development practices,
processes, and technology. Through Quanterion's software engineering training and consulting services,
we are able to guide you at selecting and implementing the best approaches and technology to maximize your return
on software investment dollars.
Materials and Processes Engineering involves the selection of the optimum materials and development
of analytical methodologies to be used to ensure robust designs, whether they are for military systems
or commercial products. The activities also address the nature of failure modes and mechanisms
in existing designs and identify means to improve designs, and to mitigate failures with proper
consideration of environmental severity, condition-based monitoring, and effective maintenance
Quanterion supports Cyber Security / Information Assurance activities in the DoD at system architecture levels
as well as detailed engineering levels. At the architecture level, Quanterion develops and
documents system implementations underlying modern DoD information networks, emphasizing software
engineering approaches that integrate security and enforcement with the availability and effective
use of military information.
Knowledge Management includes the strategies and practices used in an organization to identify, create,
represent, distribute, and enable adoption of insights and experiences. Efforts target improved
performance, competitive advantage, innovation, the sharing of lessons learned, integration and continuous
improvement of the organization. Closely related, Information Sharing traditionally referred to one-to-one
exchanges of data between a sender and receiver but has now evolved to the "sharing of information" across
Alternative Energy Investigations involves the investigation of alternative approaches to meeting current
energy demands that are environmentally friendly, or "green," while at the same time identifying the
secondary effects that result from their use. Factors such as reliability and maintenance strategies are
addressed as part of a total ownership approach.
Homeland Defense activities include a wide range of investigations and analyses intended to improve
the U.S. defense and responsiveness to events that threaten it. They address chemical-biological events,
weapons of mass destruction, critical infrastructure, cyber security and fail-safe/fault tolerant systems.
Quanterion has been supporting programs and projects involving situational awareness of threats recording,
distributing, analyzing and visually displaying information of the warfighter and responders as well as
efforts to review and benchmark processes for effectively managing/maintaining stockpile monitoring

Quanterion Solutions Incorporated, was formed with the mission to provide high quality
QUANTitative engineering services to be used as critERION for critical decision making,
hence the name Quanterion. In its eleven years of operation, the company has expanded its
technical capabilities beyond the original reliability, maintainability and quality to now
also include knowledge management, software development/engineering, materials engineering,
information technology and document management services. These technical capabilities are
currently being applied in the defense, commercial, health care, energy and homeland defense markets.
Quanterion is the operator of the DoD's Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC),
one of eight IACs sponsored by DTIC, performs the Basic Center of Operations (BCO) functions necessary to
fulfill the mission and objectives applicable to the DoD Research Development Test and Evaluation (RDT&E)
and Acquisition communities' needs for Cyber Security, Information Assurance, Knowledge Management and
Information Sharing, Software Intensive Systems Engineering, and Modeling & Simulation.
Quanterion is the subcontracted day-to-day operator of the DoD's Reliability
Information Analysis Center (RIAC), its Center of Excellence in Reliability, Maintainability and Quality.
Quanterion Automated Reliability Toolkit (QuART) is a desktop set of RMQ tools
that facilitate the design, analysis, and testing of products and systems.
