Our Work

Nimbis partners with DoD Labs, the Defense Industrial Base, and Program Offices to accelerate technology transition and advance capabilities.

The Key to Transition Acceleration Is Virtual Testing & Evaluation

Advanced Virtual Testing and Evaluation provides iterative feedback regarding the suitability of technologies to mission applications, reducing near and long-term risk to Program Offices.

Nimbis' unique digital-twin capabilities for microelectronics, manufacturing, and aerospace technologies include radiation effects analysis, thermal analysis, electro-magnetic analysis, and hardware-software co-verification.
