Services

ADS offers a wide range of mission assurance services encompassing system safety, system security, and fire/life safety consulting services to the aviation, space and defense, and public transportation industries.

Our Services:

Can be applied across any industry and any client organization. Our work processes have been crafted from both public and private sector clients across numerous industries.

Enable clients to clearly understand the pros and cons of the decisions they make with regard to their organizations. Our processes go beyond the basic analysis tools used by most consultants (i.e., cost benefits analyses, SWOT analyses, financial risk analysis, etc.). Instead, ADS couples these approaches with our risk-based approach and specialized technical expertise to help clients fully understand the risks faced by their organizations and to make educated decisions. Clients are able to better understand the consequences that may result if action is not taken to address these risks and are able to prioritize and implement appropriate and effective mitigation strategies.

Help our clients to remain compliant with complex federal and state rules and regulations. Our specialized technical expertise in the areas of System Safety, Security, Fire and Life Safety Engineering, Reliability, Maintainability and Availability, and our knowledge of federal and state rules and regulations enables our clients to avoid financial penalties that can result from failing to meet federal and state regulations, to reduce costs by lowering accident and injury rates, to improve operational efficiencies by increasing reliability.
