QinetiQ North America (QNA) has more than twenty years experience providing technical support to the government agencies on critical space programs. In particular, QNA has an extensive background and heritage performing IV&V (Independent Verification and Validation) analyses in support of Expendable Launch Vehicle (ELV) and Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) missions. In addition to Government space programs, QNA has been expanding the support to Commercial Space Programs using its unique technical capabilities and experiences. A full spectrum of launch vehicle system and sub-system engineering analyses are performed by QNA to ensure vehicle systems function properly and comply with applicable mission requirements. Engineering analysis disciplines include Flight Mechanics, Flight Controls, Thermal and Propulsion, Loads and Dynamics, Structural Analysis, and Flight Software. Special skill sets encompass model development, integrated simulations, and system analyses. Analex has supported the complete spectrum of launch vehicle mission analysis IV&V including analytical model development and testing, system and subsystem engineering analyses, mission requirements verification, participation of technical exchange and review meetings, and identification and resolution of technical issues.
