Advanced Programs

In the mid-2000s, BGI saw an opportunity to branch out from our traditional role of support for major system integrators by pursuing technical contracts of our own. This strategic decision led to the expansion of BGI’s team to include talented systems architects, systems and software engineers, and data scientists. Over the years we have continuously performed on numerous research and development, software development and data analytics projects supported by a dedicated BGI-owned facility in Akron, OH. Our seasoned technical staff and mature cyber security infrastructure supports advanced programs that include data analytics, human performance assessment, digital engineering, modeling, simulation, autonomy, and software engineering. We specialize in maximizing the benefits of data for discovery, and we transition algorithms into enterprise systems in a DevSecOps environment. BGI software engineering emphasizes a wide spectrum of programming languages and host platforms, flexible data structures and scalable solutions that integrate well with other components within enterprise frameworks.
