Embedded and Open Systems

The technology we develop addresses a broad variety of defense-related needs that range from the deployment of real-time embedded processors to the utilization of commercial cloud environments. We succeed by participating in all program phases: system analysis, architecture definition, design, prototyping, field testing, and ultimately the transfer of our technology to provide mission critical capabilities to the warfighter. Our embedded processing systems use advanced computational elements and high-performance hardware/software to support applications in radar, communications, and artificial intelligence. We are involved early in the system development stage so that the embedded processing algorithms and hardware are integrated effectively and operate seamlessly within the systems. The group also develops multi-domain system architectures for sensor systems, avionics systems, ground systems, command and control systems, and enterprise systems. We apply modern software engineering principles and commercial best practices to define and prototype open architecture solutions for these systems.
