Research and development is our core business.
In Atmolab, we have engineered several high-end quality payload setups, based on users’ experience feedback.
If none of the existing setups fits your mission and/or your platform, we can develop system just for your mission and your platform, for best fit. Research and development custom options are available for hardware and software aspects of our products.
Atmolab is a member of Katapult accelerator. Katapult is a Hardware accelerator, based in Trbovlje and owned by Dewesoft. Katapult members have unlimited access to Dewesoft laboratories and various testing devices.
Atmolab development of ISR systems
ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) systems are critical for gathering and processing information in a wide range of applications, including military and law enforcement operations, border security, disaster response, environmental monitoring, and more.
Here are some areas we consider when researching and developing of our ISR systems:
Sensor technology: New or improved sensors emerge on the market as Sensor manufacturing sector evolves faster and faster every year. Our team is up to date with the different types of sensor options available on the market, that can provide high-quality data under different environmental conditions, such as low light, bad weather, or low visibility. Some examples include radar, lidar, sonar, and infrared sensors.
Data fusion: Atmolab’s software team develops algorithms and methods for integrating data from multiple sensors and sources to provide a comprehensive picture of the situation. This involves fusing data from different modalities (e.g., visual, acoustic, and chemical) or different platforms (e.g., ground, air, and space-based sensors).
Machine learning and artificial intelligence: Atmolab’s software team develops algorithms and systems that can analyze large amounts of data in real-time and identify relevant patterns, anomalies, or events. This involves using techniques such as deep learning, computer vision, natural language processing, or decision-making models. Our gimbal camera systems use most powerful microcomputers enabling such features.
Communication and networking: At Atmolab, we develop systems that can transmit data and information securely and efficiently between different platforms and sensors. This involves using different types of networks, such as satellite, wireless, or mesh networks, and different encryption and authentication methods.
Human-machine interfaces: At Atmolab, we develop interfaces that can facilitate the interaction between human operators and ISR systems. This involves developing intuitive graphical user interfaces and immersive visualization systems.
Autonomous systems: At Atmolab, we develop systems that can operate independently or semi-independently without human intervention. This involves using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ground vehicles, or water vehicles equipped with sensors and communication systems.
Cybersecurity: At Atmolab, we develop methods and techniques for protecting ISR systems from cyber threats, such as hacking, malware, or denial-of-service attacks. This involves using secure communication protocols, intrusion detection systems, or vulnerability testing.
Ethical and legal considerations: At Atmolab, we develop frameworks and guidelines for ensuring that ISR systems are used ethically and legally. This involves considering issues such as privacy, human rights, data ownership, and accountability.
By focusing on these areas, Atmolab’s researchers and developers contribute to the ongoing evolution of ISR systems, making them more effective, efficient, and safe for various applications.
R&D Testing and Certification
First operational tests are done in-house in a workshop. Second operation tests are performed on the field.
For the specific tests we work with the Katapult, Dewesoft and use their facilities.
Certification is done in SIQ.
In the past, we have been involved in several R&D projects for the Army and the Civil sector.
1. R&D project Galeb – Slovenian Army (Coast Missions)
2. R&D Project Mantis – Slovenian Army
3. R&D Project ADD – South Korean Government
(Ability to withstand high G forces and to operate in extreme weather conditions)
4. R&D Project Thailand (Area Monitoring, Wildlife protection)
5. R&D Project Portugal (Wildfires monitoring)
6. R&D Project South Korea
(Radiometric IR sensor Integration and SW development)
