Who are we?

J & P Technologies was established in 1997 to provide contract services for the development, assessment, and support of integrated flight systems, scientific computing, and complex control systems, specifically in the aerospace and biomedical industries. The company is backed by 30+ years of experience in supporting, developing, and delivering small and large-scale systems for both the government and commercial markets.

J&P employs highly-trained professionals who have extensive experience in developing, integrating, delivering, and sustaining major human-rated systems / projects and are familiar with complex development and delivery processes, as well as system support requirements.

Areas of expertise:

  • System Engineering
  • Software Design & Development
  • Software Architecture
  • System Integration & Test
  • System Safety & Risk Analysis
  • Software Configuration Management.


J&P's system engineering, safety, and integration tool, "System Effects and Capability Losses from InsertedFailures" (SEaCLIF™), is currently used by NASA JSC's Safety & Mission Assurance (S&MA) Directorate to support flight operations.The tool focuses on product integration and provides data to the Safety Engineering Team in the MER for pre-flight assessments and anomaly resolution during flight. SEaCLIF™ enables significant increases in efficiency via the "presentation" of pre-integrated design, operational, and safety data sets, without either re-hosting the data (required by most knowledge systems) OR requiring significant maintenance resources. Of primary benefit to the engineer is the integration of classic engineering data, such as certification limits and detailed design drawings, operations engineering data, such as crew procedures and flight rules, and SR&QA engineering products and analyses, such as Hazard Reports and Failure Modes and Effects Analyses.
