Dr. Tarbutton started Bravo Team in January of 2018 with the goal of providing engineering capacity to individuals and companies. The idea of Bravo Team is that we are the “B” team that helps the “A” team (you) get what they need done. Many engineering teams (and individuals) suffer from capacity limits even though they are highly skilled and often have years of experience.  This is where we come in – we help push projects to completion. Our main goal is to create engineering impact through design, innovation and automation.  Our small team of engineers doesn’t simply take jobs, we take responsibility and do our best to help you achieve what you need to get done on time and within budget constraints. Contact us to see how we can impact your organization.
