Founded in 1977, Wolf Technical Services is dedicated to engineering excellence. The business operates within two primary areas of engineering expertise: forensic investigations and design engineering.
Some of Wolf's Forensic accomplishments include:
- Since 1977, Wolf's experts have investigated more than 25,000 forensic cases. We pride ourselves in working for both plaintiff and defense attorneys as well as insurance companies. Our analyses and conclusions are based on the laws of physics, on mathematical computations, on published data, and on our experts' education, background and experience. Our analytical methods are in accordance with scientific principles.
- Attorneys throughout the US have utilized Wolf's Demonstrative Evidence tools to successfully mediate, settle and try cases resulting in millions of dollars in awards, settlements and judgments annually. Wolf's evidence consultants work closely with expert witnesses to more effectively communicate their professional opinions.
- Wolf contributes to the continuing education of professionals throughout the US with their scientific knowledge and practical experience. The lessons Wolf has learned in more than 40 years of forensic work provide unique value and insights into forensic science delivered within the context of a litigation team's casework. Classes and presentations can be custom tailored to your organization's needs and can include no cost case evaluations by Wolf staff. A sample of informational seminars is available, and we are open to requests and customization to your team's needs.
- We serve as consulting engineers for the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and Indy Car in their safety improvement efforts for spectators and participants.
- It was Wolf's technical expertise that was instrumental in creating laws mandating the addition of retro-reflective striping on semi-trailers and truck tractors.
- We offer a no cost case consultation. Our team will show you why thousands of clients, including hundreds of members of ABOTA and many members of the Inner Circle of Advocates, call on our team for their exceptional skills, professionalism and value.
- Our very first client still calls us - more than 40 years after our first case together!
Similarly, Wolf also provided input to the FRA on the currently in-process taping of railroad design cars.
Some of Wolf's design engineering accomplishments include:
- To date, Wolf has been awarded 10 Phase 1 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contracts and 7 Phase 2 SBIR contracts with multiple branches of the Department of Defense (DoD). Two of the Phase 1 projects did not move into Phase 2 due to funding or priority changes.
- Wolf is responsible for the technical development of UMARS, the first restraint system with energy attenuation intended to improve safety for occupants in military helicopters. The UMARS concept has commercial application potential for use in civilian helicopters.
- Under contract to the U.S. Navy, Wolf developed CMARS, a compact, lightweight restraint system with electronic and mechanical sensing designed to stop webbing payout as soon the system detects an impact to the aircraft or webbing speed above a threshold.
- The Wolf team reverse-engineered and redesigned a robotic manipulator that packages insulin pens for a large Midwest pharmaceutical company's production line. Wolf engineers simplified the design, decreasing down time and significantly reducing maintenance issues.
- Wolf developed a visual signal beacon for use in emergency vehicles, offering an alternate optical design that included a set of non-moving lenses with multiple programmable LEDs, illuminated sequentially.
- Wolf has provided technical insight to healthcare organizations in numerous areas including heart acoustics and monitoring, medical appliance design and medical waste disposal.
