MIST
Multi-Intelligence Simulation Technology, or MIST, is SRC’s
solution to reducing risk in radar and sensor systems,
architecture and algorithm development.

SRC, formerly Syracuse Research APPLI CATIONS


Corporation, is a leading supplier of MIST’s generic object-oriented
high-performance, physics based architecture allows modeling a

MIST technology is a cost-effective
means of predicting real-world system
