Who Are We?
Our primary customers to date have been the U.S. military and defense contractors. These customers use us to model such things as body armor effectiveness, analyses of alternatives, model and simulation verification and validation, battle command and control configuration, human cognitive performance, crew fatigue and efficiency and route planning under threat conditions. In addition, we have helped defense contractors optimize system concepts as well as assess the mission concept of operations which would drive the need for such concepts.
What We Do
Our mission is to be the technical organization that government, commercial and non-profit leaders and decision makers rely upon for state-of-the-art operations research and systems analysis.
ORSA was founded with the idea of providing valuable support to our customers, our community and our colleagues. Keeping all three in mind at all times is like to building a three legged stool. It will not function properly if any of the legs is cut short. Our founder has also been unabashedly committed to the ethical principles articulated by organizations such as Scouting and Rotary International. The Rotary four way test is quoted in our employee handbook and is used explicitly in the company’s decision process. The four-way test:
Is it the truth (Do we have all the facts)?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
