Enabling innovation with predictive scientific models

scientific models on demand

Many industries rely on scientific data and models for planning and operations.

Integrating them into modern web apps, mobile apps, and spreadsheets, can be difficult.

Our web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) reduce integration times from days to minutes.

aviation radiation

Our Earth is bombarded by high energy galactic cosmic rays and solar energetic particles. Predict cosmic ray exposures of pilots, aircrew, and frequent flyers using the validated PARMA and CARI7 models.

space radiation

Calculate the flux of trapped energetic protons, electrons and solar plasma with the AE9/AP9/SPM models, and galactic cosmic radiation using the DLR model. Use in mission planning to mitigate space radiation effects.

about us

Amentum was founded in 2016 to provide modelling and simulation services to enhance the capabilities of the Australian Department of Defence. We have since expanded our remit to enable other industries to access scientific software and data. Our user base is global and spans a range of industries, from space operations, to defense, mineral exploration, autonomous vehicle navigation, nuclear technology, through to education.

why the name 'amentum'?

The amentum was a leather strap used by ancient greeks to extend the range and stability of the javelin.

Similarly, Amentum exists to extend the capabilties of its clients through innovation.


Our modelling services have helped clients explore new technology concepts and de-risk development projects:
