Information Systems Security Engineering (ISSE)
Chitra supports our federal customers with engineering of security controls for information systems and assists in maintenance to ensure the continued accreditation of the system. This includes developing and updating system security plans and managing and controlling changes to the system and assessing the security impact of those changes. We employ analytical and evaluative methods as well as qualitative and quantitative techniques to identify technological strengths and establish data systems that leverage and capitalize on improved processes and functions that tailor to our client’s needs. Our defense-in-depth approach to Cybersecurity ensures that all hardware and software are approved, secured, and configured properly.
A dynamic part of the lifecycle of a software and systems product is its design process, understanding the requirements and critical functional elements of the design process allows for the most appropriate development model to minimize risk, meet cost, and deliver on schedule. Utilizing developmental design systems such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Waterfall, Agile, Incremental, and Iterative. Chitra has the expertise to design, develop, integrate, and test custom federal system and software solutions and support start-to-finish development efforts from initial architecture and requirements capture through validation and deployment. With our experienced software and systems engineering team, we can help federal clients develop, integrate, manage, and maintain software and systems environments.
Integrated Logistics Support
An essential element to a successful program is Integrated Logistics Support. By providing a comprehensive range of support services, we can engineer a system that is optimized throughout its life cycle. Our highly trained personnel assist in developing a phased logistics approach that defines broad logistics concepts and becomes more detailed as the program matures to produce the right level of readiness to support and sustain our client’s needs. Our elemental process of logistic support is planned, acquired, tested, and provided in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Research and Development
At Chitra, we perform extensive research and analysis of the customer’s requirements to formulate the best approach in providing technological solutions to mission-critical problems. We continually delve into research and development of new strategies to increase product support and discover new methodologies and practices to provide cost-effective solutions to real-world problems.
