    - SCADA

We provide project leadership and mentoring in a variety of areas, including:

  • Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM)
    - Selecting and implementing ETRM solutions for gas and electricity
  • Gas Pipelines
    - Gas measurement
    - SCADA
    - Gas allocation, dispatching, and normalization
  • GIS and airborne LIDAR

We are expert iOS developers, using Swift, SwiftUI, Combine, and SIMD vector analysis.

Our mobile software products include:

  • Beat-It Drums
    Teaches drummers music notation and develops advanced drumming skills.
  • Visual Music
    Models human spectrotemporal percpetion of musical signals
  • Master Tuner:
    Tune your instrument to historical temperaments, or analyze your vibrato
  • Temperament Designer:
    Design your own musical temperaments

Our EFM Test Bench lets you validate electronic flow computers.

It subjects a flow computer to an endless variety of simulated pipeline conditions. It does this by producing the electrical signals that would be produced by pressure and temperature transducers, and a gas chromatograph. It calculates the exact flow volumes being simulated, and compares that with the flow computer's measurements. Use it to:

  • Validate flow computers
  • Determine the suitability of a flow computer at meter runs with pulsation, or mixed streams
  • Determine whether a gas chromatograph would make a significant difference at a site
  • Simulate gas measurement flow runs
  • Diagnose flow measurement problems
  • Simulate gas chromatographs

Our Performance Testing package is used by pipeline operators to measure and track the "as installed" performance of natural gas compressors. It helps them to:

  • Get the Maximum Value from Natural Gas compression
  • Build operating maps (wheel maps)
  • Measure isentropic and polytropic performance
  • Measure anti-surge control performance
  • Diagnose pipeline conditions which affect flow and compression
  • Track ongoing changes to unit performance

We can work with your development team, or provide complete software development services. Some of the areas we've worked in include:

  • Airborne LIDAR
    - Integrating instrumentation, and providing real-time mission support tools
  • Enterprise Application Integration
    Using middleware and web services tools to create wide-scale enterprise integration
  • Vendor Management
    Working with solution vendors to help them meet quality standards and time deadlines
  • Instrumentation Software
    For the past decade, we've been responsible for developoing the software used to configure Gas Chromoatographs and UV Absorbtion Spectrocopy analyzers build by Ametek Process Instruments.
  • AGILE development
    We use Scrum as our primary Agile methodology, but also use XP or other methodologies
