Our Mission

ATAC provides developmental and operational test and analysis, custom software applications, and related engineering services in the fields of avionics, aerospace engineering, support services contracting, and commercial software development. We are committed to providing the highest quality products and services to support military aviation missions through state-of-the-art simulation, modeling, and analysis tools, a highly qualified technical staff, and a creative, innovative, and responsive, small company environment.


ATAC is a small, woman-owned business providing specialized avionics test and analysis services to the 96th Test Wing at Eglin Air Force Base and the 412th Test Wing at Edwards AFB. ATAC has grown from a single-person start-up to a major acquisition prime contractor. ATAC has carefully managed its growth to preserve its reputation for excellence. With its industry standard setting professionals, ATAC has repeatedly met difficult technical requirements and stayed on time and within budget.

ATAC is completely RBA funded, successfully bringing flight test programs and budgets to the Wings we serve

ATAC was founded, and has achieved success, on the premise that systems engineers trained by the Prime Contractors coupled with computer software professionals with test experience can provide a tremendous benefit to the Government’s test and evaluation infrastructure. Most gained that experience by working as integrators at Boeing, Lockheed, General Dynamics, Draper Labs, Northrop, and McDonnell Douglas. Their collective responsibilities included all aspects of electromechanical installation, communication integration, and follow-on validation of a variety of systems on their respective aircraft. Of course, to accomplish these tasks well requires exemplary systems engineering talent. ATAC’s core engineering group consists of engineers well known in their specialty fields. Collectively, our engineers have worked through all aspects of the product life cycle: from initial trade studies to Test and Evaluation through redesign or replacement. We have the insight required to support Test Wing initiatives and to bring technical recommendations to fruition by understanding the funding and planning cycles required.

Mission Focus and Innovation are two keys to ATAC success

Aircraft development testing and analysis is our core business; we know tactical aircraft, nose to tail, because we work with the systems, pilots, and manufacturers every day in support of our squadrons. The unique mix of Prime aircraft manufacturing and large corporation managerial software experience our management possesses gives us special insight into the test process. We have earned our reputation of engineering excellence and innovation by solving real world problems in real world time frames at real world costs.

ATAC has unsurpassed Tactical Aircraft Avionics Design Experience

ATAC services are performed by a highly experienced technical and management staff, many of whom have advanced academic degrees and a broad base of experience in studies, analysis, research, and development projects. Our professional staff mix is multidisciplinary in character with backgrounds in engineering, operations research, mathematics, physics, statistics, computer science, physical science and business. Some key employees are nationally recognized authorities in their respective fields.

ATAC’s success is based upon a simple management philosophy:
