Since 1995, Applied Optimization, Inc. (AO) has been collaboratively discovering innovative solutions in material science and space science to address the technical challenges of our clients and partners in industry and government. Offering the right balance between critical thinking and non-conformity, our team of scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and software developers strive to further the understanding and state-of-the-art of additive manufacturing (AM), materials processing, space situational awareness, and space object characterization. Our software products’ capabilities include optimizing AM process parameters, mitigating defects in build parts, and processing and exploiting photometry data from Earth’s space domain.


Our Focus

We focus on interdisciplinary research and development of space science and materials science. From analyzing brightness data from man-made space objects in earth’s orbit to mathematical modeling in AM processes, Applied Optimization’s team is adept at assessing, researching, and developing optimized solutions for today’s technological problems.

We perform interdisciplinary research in the following areas:

  • Applied and computational mathematics and modeling
  • Algorithm development
  • Problem solving in pure sciences and engineering
