We provide analytical and software services to various clients. We use expertise in mathematical modeling, operations research, probability theory, and numerical analysis to solve challenging operations research problems. Our work relies both on the application of well-known mathematical techniques (such as optimization, Monte Carlo methods, and Markov Chain analysis) and on the development of new and specialized techniques to service our clients' individual needs. Since inception, QUANTICS has designed and implemented combat models, gathered and analyzed input data, and both documented and briefed model methodologies, inputs, and results.
