ORLANDO, Fla. – SIMETRI, Inc. will aid the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) by conducting scientific research and development (R&D) and simulation in a contract awarded in June 2019.

Under the contract, SIMETRI will analytically quantify compounds of concern and examine the environmental impacts of these compounds by using analytical and geochemical methods, computational modeling and evaluations, and materials analysis and fabrications. SIMETRI’s chemists will complete testing on water, sediment, and tissue samples to determine any adverse conditions, then prioritize the compounds of greatest concern and predict the most likely environmental reaction mechanisms and transformation of products.
“Composed of scientists, researchers, project managers and engineers, the SIMETRI team is a perfect solution for the USACE ERDC requirements,” said Angela Alban, SIMETRI president and chief executive officer. “SIMETRI is honored to support the U.S. Army in its efforts to improve the lives of service members and Americans.”

Since its founding, SIMETRI has performed original research with the goal of applying practical knowledge to expand understanding and develop solutions to problems. Within the last five years, much of this research has been focused on developing solutions to more effectively train personnel in accordance with U.S. Army program goals, specifically in support of the warfighter and with applications across all medical domains. This contract expands SIMETRI’s scientific research to support American citizens.

SIMETRI is an SBA-certified 8a and Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) that possesses extensive expertise in the provision of advanced medical training simulation and medical training program management. Experts in curriculum analysis and development, SIMETRI also manufactures and fields high-fidelity human patient simulators, part task trainers, and moulage kits such as those used by the Army Medical Department Center & School Health Readiness Center of Excellence (AMEDDC&S), the Joint Special Operations Medical Training Center (JSOMTC), and other military medical training centers.
