SCS Engineering, Inc. is a Small Business.
SCS, founded in 1982, specializes in Software, Simulation and Test tools and services
for the development of real-time software. Our employees have been a part of the
aerospace and defense industry since the 1970s.
SCS’ R&D services include the core areas of Distributed Technologies which include Processing, Simulations,
Mission Rehearsal, Embedded Training, Real-Time Architectures and System Integration.
SCS’ support services include system design, software development, software/system integration and testing, software
quality assurance and general software/system support and maintenance.
SCS’ tool suites encompass real-time Software, Simulation and Test development and analysis tools, visualization
tools, and communication backbone tools.
SCS’ commercial tool line also includes model suites providing theater level, vehicle level and subsystem level
SCS’ development activities have included Systems and Mission Rehearsal Tool Suites which support distributed
planning, mission execution, observation and post-mission analysis.
SCS’ activities have also included Avionic Simulation Software used in the development of System Integration
Facilities and Laboratories.
SCS also holds specific experience in developing PC-based real-time visual systems and rendering engines based on
OpenGL/DirectX and Open-Source concepts. SCS has developed out-the-window scene generators using non-
proprietary graphic suites and standards as well as fully interactive virtual battle spaces using goggles and head

SCS has extensive experience in deploying real-time systems on desktop workstations. SCS has developed toolsets
which allow legacy mainframe and mini-computer based simulation systems to be replaced with Microsoft Windows
based workstations and systems. SCS has deployed applications, tools, and APIs on platforms based on VxWorks,
UNIX and Linux.
SCS specializes in providing services related to real-time simulation applications and
developing real-time simulation tools and systems.

Our engineers have developed Ada, FORTRAN, C/C++, Pascal, LabVIEW and Assembler software applications for
host computer systems as well as Ada, Jovial, C/C++ and Assembler for embedded computer systems. These host and
embedded applications include:
Software Development Tools - Tool Sets for the development of embedded systems,
expert systems, mission applications, subsystem integration, operating systems and
distributed systems. The tools included:
Expert System Shells
Real Time Data Loggers
Bus Stimulation and Analysis Environments
Data Reduction Plot and Tabular Dump Utilities
Interactive Graphics and Plotting Packages
System/Subsystem Integration Environments
Ada Software Development Environments
Mission Applications - Mission applications that range from real-time multi-sensor
data fusion to non-real-time system status and diagnostic monitors. Our engineers
have developed applications such as: navigation, multi-source sensor data fusion,
air-to-air weapon delivery, air-to-ground weapon delivery, crew station interfaces,
display systems, status monitoring, built-in-test, down loadable diagnostics. Our
engineers have also developed algorithmic as well as rule based applications.
System Control / Resource Management - Resource management applications that
assess system capability, mission requirements, mission priorities and mission
phase; these systems are then dynamically balanced based on system assessment.
Our engineers have developed these systems which included embedded, host, real-
time, non-real-time, man-in-the loop and hybrid systems.
Automated Test Sets - Automated Test Sets have ranged from single commercial
aircraft fixtures to complex DoD weapons system avionic suites.
Data Management - Data management systems that manage low and high speed
data bus interfaces, central and distributed data base systems, shared memories,
linear busses, ring busses, cross bar switches, bulk memories and magnetic media.
The control strategies that our engineers developed for these systems include
sequential access, direct access, physical addressing, logical addressing and hybrid
Operating Systems - Operating systems for single as well as multi-processor
systems. Many of which were developed in high order languages to ensure
maximum transportability. Our engineers have the background required to assess
timing and sizing issues to determine the proper balance between HOL
implementations versus native language implementations. Our engineers have
developed Kernels that operate on multi-vendor Mil-Std-1750A computers, CISC and
RISC based systems.
