From research concept to operational capability
A prototype is defined as an original model on which an operational system is patterned. At Metron Aviation, the prototype development process, within a structured concept engineering methodology, allows the end users to take prototypes beyond traditional models and test the product in live operations. Prototype systems tested in full operations mode enable customers to rapidly validate and improve concepts earlier in the software lifecycle, saving the client valuable resources and time.
Traditional engineering models alone cannot prove a concept in the same manner as a prototype in live operations. Prototype applications ensure that the product will function the way the client intended. Metron Aviation’s prototyping processes provide the full benefits of a comprehensive software lifecycle, from requirements, design, implementation, quality assurance and finally, support, providing the optimal framework for turning research concepts into operational capabilities.
