What We Do

Trident Research was established to combine applied research with disciplined systems engineering to solve challenging problems that make an impact on our world.

Solving Unusual Problems

Rarely do we have the luxury of accepting the status quo or standardized way of doing something, because we choose to solve the hard problems. Often our innovation creates something that did not exist before.

As a smaller, solutions-based engineering firm, this requires our team to strategically work across a broad spectrum of responsibilities. Each of our team members truly lives up to the very definition of an engineer by retaining a holistic approach to include design, rapid prototyping, manufacturing, field operations, and sustainment for new and legacy systems. We must also have the patience to switch lanes and work on supporting procedural or process documentation. So, we develop relationships with our clients in order to thoroughly appreciate their needs so that we can optimize the technical solution that is right for them.

Discovering Unknown Problems

Consistently viewing challenges from different perspectives at various points in the development process helps foster creativity and intuition. When creativity and innovation are the lens through which we see the world, we cannot help but notice problems in the world, but we find ourselves motivated to also discover their solutions. We know that keeping our personal skills sharp is imperative to discovering solutions, but so is having a great network of brilliant people around us. Relationships with fellow engineers, scientists, and field operations people maximizes the speed of our solutions.
