Functional Areas and Geographical Zones:
TAI is eligible to provide support in Geographical Zones 1, 2, 4, and 7, in the following functional areas:

  • Research and Development Support
    This functional area consists of supporting the development and application of scientific and analytical disciplines to conduct fundamental research; scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state-of-the-art or increasing knowledge or understanding; concept formulation; assessment of system and subsystem requirements; development, analysis and evaluation of concepts, technologies, systems and subsystems; and development of operational concepts and tactics with the end goal being the application of results to developing new or improving existing warfighting capabilities.
  • Engineering, System Engineering and Process Engineering Support
    This functional area consists of supporting the application of engineering disciplines to technically support development of new warfighting capabilities and systems, technically support development of significant alterations to existing systems, support integration of existing equipment or software into different applications or platforms to support the warfighter, and support evaluation of foreign or non-developmental weapons systems, equipment, and technologies to satisfy existing warfighting requirements. Support is required for system and process engineering disciplines that systematically consider the requirements, synthesize and evaluate alternative concepts, identify a recommended selection, and generate a design and system specification.
  • Modeling, Simulation, Stimulation, and Analysis Support
    This functional area consists of the application of a standardized, rigorous, structured methodology to create and validate a physical, mathematical, or otherwise logical representation of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process. The functional area involves the use of models, including emulators, prototypes, simulators, and stimulators, either statically or over time, to develop data as a basis for making managerial, technical, strategic, or tactical decisions.
  • System Design Documentation and Technical Data Support
    This functional area involves the engineering effort required to prepare and assure that the detailed technical data documentation that is necessary to support system development reflects the latest design, configuration, integration, and installation concepts. Technical documentation may be in the form of paper, electronic (digital) or interactive computer systems.
  • Reliability, Maintainability, and Availability (RM&A) Supports
    This functional area consists of applying engineering, scientific, and analytical disciplines to ensure that systems and platforms RM&A requirements are integrated with the system design, development and life cycle sustainment resulting in warfighting capabilities that function effectively when required.  This will assure that detection and correction of design deficiencies, weak parts, and workmanship defects that affect functionality are implemented.
  • System Safety and Engineering Support
    This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to ensure that safety is considered in all aspects of design, development, operation, maintenance, and modification of systems and platforms.
  • Configuration Management (CM) Support
    This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to identify, document, and verify the functional, performance, and physical characteristics of systems, to control changes and non-conformance, and to track actual configurations of systems and platforms.
  • Quality Assurance (QA) Support
    This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to ensure that the processes and products used in the design, development, fabrication, manufacture of result in quality products.
  • Logistics Support
    This functional area consists of applying the engineering and analytical disciplines required to implement acquisition logistics as a multi-functional technical management discipline associated with the design, development, test, production, fielding, sustainment, and improvement modifications of cost effective systems that achieve the warfighters' peacetime and wartime readiness requirements. The principal objectives of acquisition logistics are to ensure that support considerations are an integral part of the system's design requirements, that the system can be cost effectively supported through its life-cycle, and that the infrastructure elements necessary to the initial fielding and operational support of the system are identified and developed and acquired.
  • In-Service Engineering, Introduction, Installation, and Checkout Support
    This functional area consists of the application of engineering, analytical, and technical disciplines and skills to establish and maintain long-term engineering, operation, and maintenance support for in-service warfighting capabilities as well as the capability to modernize or introduce transformational technologies into those capabilities.
  • Program Support
    This functional area consists of applying the business, financial management, and technical disciplines required to support planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and leading team efforts in managing acquisition programs such that the result places a capable and supportable system in the hands of the warfighter when and where it is needed, and does so at an affordable price. This functional area represents an integration of a complex system of differing but related functional disciplines that must work together to achieve program goals through development, production, deployment, operations, support, and disposal.

SeaPort-e Quality Assurance Program:
TAI has an established in-house QA/QC system. The fundamental of this plan is that Quality is not "inspected in", but quality is the responsibility of all workers whether they are managers, engineers, designers or administrative support staff. Every employee knows that quality is every individual's responsibility. This not only includes quality workmanship, but also quality communications and documentation. In addition to this the QA Manager, ensures that all the work meets the in-house design standards, the clients requirement and applicable ABS and USCG, or other regulatory body requirements. Periodically employees receive ongoing quality training. Supervising engineers and supervising designers ensure that the work is done correctly to meet customer's requirements, and that the technical products is not only functional, but is also a practicable, optimal and producible solution which meets applicable regulatory standards. The TAI Quality system includes quality audits, quality training, and quality improvement processes.
