About Us

With more than 60 years of combined experience, SMS_ThinkTank LLC was developed to provide systems modeling and simulation business solutions. Based in the Brunswick area, Georgia, we've helped globally OEMs, suppliers, and both academic and government organizations to navigate through the difficult tasks associated with the adoption of systems engineering methods and best practices.

After seeing the need for systems modeling across industries as well as organizations, and volunteering for various organizations that provided exposure to those fields, our founders (Ed Ladzinski and Frank Popielas) left the corporate environment to make their knowledge available across those fields. This has been our foundation as a business that knows how to think outside of the box, develop new thinking, establish new cultures and discover new frontiers. Let us help you be a leader in your respective field by applying these new engineering and business principles to achieve a sustainable innovation culture.
