ENSR is an environmental consulting and engineering firm that provides a comprehensive range of services logically aligned with its clients’ asset management life cycle to help resolve complex environmental issues. Focused on the oil and gas, gas and electric utilities, transportation, manufacturing and government sectors, ENSR resolves demanding business challenges with innovative approaches to reduce costs, mitigate risks and liabilities, increase efficiencies and improve overall performance.

For the US Department of Defense, ENSR worked on an application that compiles a set of scientific data, including experimental test results, scientific papers, and software model abstracts. After compilation, the US DOD and ENSR distributed the application on portable hard-drives, designed to enable easy access in the field, and to prevent unauthorized disclosure of sensitive data.

For searching the compiled scientific data, ENSR chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine. “We used dtSearch to index and search the abstracts and the underlying search documents,” explained ENSR. “Our user interface made use of dtSearch’s natural language searching, boolean searching, and combined fielded and full-text searching.”

The end result: “ENSR using dtSearch delivered a solution that was on time and on budget,” Further, “the methodology that ENSR developed using dtSearch would be applicable for other technical problem areas. In fact, the methodology we developed would be of general use in providing easy access to any scientific body of knowledge.”
