NEWS is a software system which can be used to calculate both complex dispersal situations and warning and hazard areas according to NATO standard ATP-45. news is currently deployed as the WMD evaluation module in the German Air Force's new Surface-to-Air-Missile Operation Centre (SAMOC).

Planning and optimisation of production facilities

tms has decades of experience in modelling, simulation and software development. It was mainly set up for system analyses and technology studies of defence issues. Since 1998, we have also provided this know-how to solve industrial and economic optimisation problems. This has already lead to our completion of several projects, which are listed here as examples.

  • Albert Ackermann GmbH & Co. KG
    The aim of this project was to reduce coordination problems in the decentralised production structures by providing the manufacturing cell managers with software which quantitatively assessed the consequences of their alternative actions for them. An optimisation potential was established as a result.

  • Distribution centre - investment check
    An investment in planned handling and conveying technology was saved. We were able to show that the performance requirements could not be achieved with the specified planning.
  • Comau
    The availability of a car body production line was improved by 7% by specific planning of buffer areas.

System Safety and Functional Safety

  • System Safety Demonstration Manual
    System Safety Demonstration Manual developed on behalf of the Germany‘s Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (Bundesamt für Ausrüstung, Informationstechnik und Nutzung der Bundeswehr - BAAINBw).
  • IRIS-T SL
    Functional safety audit of a guided missile.
  • EFCS-MLRS (MARS II)
