Featured Projects

Metron’s employees are leaders in their technical fields who have made the commitment to solve real-world problems. They excel in statistical inference, operations research, physical modeling, and software development.

Our strategy is grounded in a dedication to applied mathematics and a first-principles approach to problem-solving. This means that instead beginning with assumptions about the problem and its solution, our path starts with a deep analysis of the problem to be solved, the nature of the data available, and the core needs of the end user. We find that this first-principles approach yields robust, tailored solutions that outperform black box or ad hoc options when operating live with real-world data.

Our team has performed some pretty amazing feats over the years. Here are a few that stand out.
