Coupi logo

Coupi has combined our science, engineering and DEM simulation expertise to provide consulting and R&D services, including R&D partnerships to agencies, organizations and private industry. Customers and partners include NASA, JPL, DoE, Johns Hopkins, Applied Mechanics Associates, and Honeybee Robotics.

Coupi consulting and R&D services works with customers to develop simulation solutions to meet their specific technical, design, budget and timeline requirements. We conduct customer-driven research and development activities to identify factors that affect engineering design and performance in operational settings. Our engineers and scientists can provide insight into the factors that affect performance of engineered equipment needed to successfully develop simulation models.

Models are validated and calibrated with available laboratory and field data, Coupi participates in government research programs that include agency RFPs, SBIR and STTR and welcome partners to develop ideas into successful projects. If your idea needs research and simulation expertise please contact us.
