PEMDAS Technologies & Innovations
PEMDAS’ experts have spent decades leading the way in analysis, research and development of complex systems.
The PEMDAS Story
In 2008, Mary Lockhart, President and CEO of PEMDAS Technologies & Innovations, first identified the need for the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community, civilian emergency response authorities, and the private sector to integrate Environmental Intelligence (EI) into their most critical activities. She gathered a team of dedicated Subject Matter Experts to ensure PEMDAS client needs were met. Since then, PEMDAS has delivered on that vision, providing clients with unique services and insights to help them succeed.
PEMDAS’ team of nationally recognized experts and highly skilled engineers – all of whom have a proven record of exceeding objectives – brings expertise to solve complex problems for our clients by using innovative approaches, strategic planning, the application of proven systems engineering methodologies, and effective communication.
PEMDAS management includes senior leaders from the military, atmospheric science, systems engineering, risk assessment, lifecycle product development, and high-end engineering services.
Our expertise crosses disciplines and application systems:
- High spatial and temporal resolution rapid updating environmental intelligence forecasts
- Real-time environmental alerts and warnings
- Assimilation of disparate data sources into environmental prediction system
- Tailored applications for unique missions utilizing environmental hazard data
- EI decision support products in four dimensions (3D + time)
- OGC compliant web-service delivered data
- “Big Data” analytics
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML)

Answer This Problem If You’re A Mathaholic
4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 – 4 x 4 = ?
Hint: Remember, P.E.M.D.A.S.
(73% of people fail to answer this correctly)
Want the answer?
(4 X 4) + (4 X 4) + 4 – (4 X 4)
(16 + 16 + 4) – 16
36 – 16
Department of Defense
PEMDAS is under contract with the United States Army, Air Force and Navy to analyze and develop solutions for improved Environmental Intelligence (EI) for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations, especially for unmanned platforms.
PEMDAS solutions close the environmental gaps with real-time sensing technologies and data fusion techniques to enable better decision making. PEMDAS’ environmental intelligence tools have been proven effective from the Arctic to the Tropics.
PEMDAS, as a member of the Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) team, is helping NASA develop the concepts and regulations for the safe and efficient operation of unmanned platforms within America’s national airspace structure.
Through innovative research, PEMDAS is using atmospheric modernization research to improve operations and reduce costs for NOAA.
University of North Dakota (UND)
PEMDAS is under contract with UND, providing EI for a next-generation ground combat vehicle for the U.S. Army.
