Modeling & Simulation Development
Barron Associates has decades of experience in modeling and simulation of dynamic systems. From simulation models of space vehicles, fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, ships, and underwater vehicles, Barron Associates has developed simulations ranging from low-order, low-cost linear models to high-fidelity nonlinear simulations with a full gamut of environmental disturbances and hardware aging effects. As a testament to Barron Associates’ modeling and simulation expertise, Barron Associates is an approved MathWorks Systems Integrator. As one of the leading users of Simulink, Simulink Coder, and xPC Target, Barron Associates has established expertise developing and deploying real-time xPC Target applications to include system development and integration with other real-time operating systems and computer architectures. This capability sets the stage for rapid and efficient development of real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulations. Barron Associates works with MathWorks products as well as its own suite of in-house developed software tools for system identification and parameter estimation.
Barron Associates can develop mathematical system models from high-level system specifications, first-principles physics-based descriptions, and even collected sensor data. Barron Associates works with customers to ascertain the appropriate level of fidelity for the application and always works within agreed upon customer time and budget constraints.
