Technical guidance from epiphany to product delivery.
QS-2 provides best-in-class scientific and technical consulting services and evaluation methodologies by applying deep subject matter expertise across multiple domains including applied mathematics, biology, machine learning, physics, optics, chemistry, materials science, and engineering. We know the way through new scientific projects, because we’ve been there before, drawing on decades of experience working at the forefront of bleeding-edge scientific research and development in academia, government laboratories, and industry. Our team is passionate about identifying the most promising research and development directions for organizational investment and innovation.
From inception to a successful program close-out, QS-2 works side-by-side with clients to manage large, multifaceted, complex programs. QS-2 understands the dynamic environment of program management, and our team excels in the ability to focus on the details that ensure a seamless delivery from ideation to innovation. From the review of proposals, vetting statements of work, and monitoring the achievement of program objectives, QS-2 aids our clients with in-depth due diligence and technical oversight of academic and industrial researchers. A solid program is founded on precise and aggressive-yet-feasible technical milestones, which our team has years of experience developing across a wide range of scientific disciplines covering the fundamental to the applied.
Testing and Evaluation
Our client’s mission is our mission, and our team at QS-2 has expertise in coordination, planning, and execution of test and evaluation activities to support program objectives. From assessing requirements, identifying test cases and methods, establishing test plans, formulating independently verifiable quantitative metrics, developing virtual testing environments, and managing the overall execution of the T&E process, QS-2 is there to ensure project success. We have experience with hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop testing, and over the course of numerous engagements have developed methods and software to allow for automatic scientific and verification scoring with the ability to tailor algorithmic solutions and development support to meet the client’s specific test-bed needs.
QS-2 is passionate about reducing the disordered universe of “big data” into digestible and actionable insights for our customers. With expertise in the newest techniques in data mining, machine learning, and network theory, our team turns our clients’ complex and high-dimensional data into a precise strategic plan that helps them move forward. We help organizations deploy predictive models for technology and market forecasting, and predictive and quantitative methods to point the way to new and innovative organizational investment strategies.
Technical Road-mapping and Bibliometric Analysis
Strategic technical investments are the lifeblood of organizations, and QS-2 works closely with our clients to understand their unique mission and needs in order to formulate tailored plans for scientific and technology investments. Using proprietary algorithms (based on graph analytics and machine learning), coupled with domain expertise, QS-2 identifies emerging scientific trends, disciplines, and even individual researchers to create comprehensive maps of the scientific and industrial funding landscape. This information provides our clients with an actionable picture of the current state-of-the-art that our subject matter experts can use to conduct deep-dive literature reviews, targeted workshops with leaders in the field, and analytical calculations to support our clients’ missions.
Federal Business Development
It can be difficult for a business or academic group to navigate the waters of federal procurement, proposal creation, and regulation. QS-2 provides our clients with advisers for all stages of the federal procurement and review process including detailed technical background research, authorship, and comprehensive review of proposals to federal science funding agencies. To maximize the chances of success for federal funding QS-2 provides strategic planning and advice QS-2 also actively works with clients through all stages of the federal scientific regulation and approval process, with a particular emphasis on the biotechnology sector.
Scientific and Technical Multimedia Production
Today’s communications portals allow lightning-fast engagement of viewers through social media and other digital multimedia domains. This means messaging needs to be compelling, clear, and concise, which can be particularly challenging when working in scientific, technical, and related complex disciplines. QS-2 leverages scientific and technical expertise to assist clients in engaging viewers by generating truly experiential productions — taking you there — and streamlining all production processes from project conceptualization to managing interviews, filming, and editing. Where larger production teams fall short in scientific and technical capabilities, at QS-2 we pride ourselves in ensuring both concept and content are translated in our multimedia productions, including educational videos, video advertisements, and promotional videos.
