Embedded and Open Systems

We develop software and processing architectures for sensors, aircraft, ground, and cloud-based systems to address a broad range of challenging national security needs. Our work spans all program phases: system analysis, architecture definition, design, prototyping, field testing, and ultimately transfer of our technology to provide mission-critical capabilities to the warfighter. Our embedded processing systems use advanced computational elements in support of applications such as 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. Leveraging private and commercial cloud environments, we design and develop multidomain architectures for sensor, avionics, ground, command-and-control, and enterprise systems to improve mission timelines and data access. We apply modern software engineering principles and commercial best practices to ensure that effectiveness, reliability, efficiency, and security are prioritized in all our solutions.
