S3 has significant history and branding as both an aviation support and systems engineering company. Our programs that support aviation operations cross into many distinct market sectors but are at the same time often synergistic in delivering superior aviation service and product solutions to our customers. These programs include support to US and Partner Nation (PN) military/security organizations in the form of systems engineering and technical assistance, aviation training and operations, and aviation logistics. Additionally, we provide comparable commercial aviation support to the General Aviation community in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations. Each of S3’s business units and subsidiaries offer products and services in Aviation Operations according to their mission and market focus.
S3’s SETA Services Business Unit (BU) provides technical and programmatic support to the US Military Services and other select US Government agencies for aviation related systems and acquisition services. For example, the SETA BU supports the US Army’s Program Executive Office (PEO) for Aviation and the Army’s Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) with highly diversified products and services that include: life cycle management, systems engineering, acquisition support, modeling and simulation, experimentation, programmatic planning and execution, systems cyber protection, knowledge management, new equipment training, and logistics.
