Halifax firm gets millions from feds to develop software tool

Software will help engineers with verifications for early-stage designs in fields such as defence and aeronautics.

HALIFAX — A Halifax-based design and engineering firm is getting more than $2.9 million in federal funding to develop software to assist engineers with early stage designs.

The money for QRA Corp. is conditionally repayable and comes from a pool of $7.1 million for four projects under the federal government’s Atlantic Innovation Fund.

The QVtrace is a software tool that will help engineers with verifications required for early-stage designs and can be used in fields such as defence and aeronautics.

The software will allow engineers to test all aspects of their designs to find any limitations before the product is made.

QRA Corp. plans to collaborate with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics on the project.

The company plans to create 13 new research and development positions through the project.
