Our team has the capability and experience required to deliver world-class surveillance solutions.
Our capabilities include expertise in:
- Military/surveillance operations
- Experimental trials
- Sonar (detection, classification, localization, tracking)
- Physics (underwater acoustics)
- Innovative user interfaces
- Reusable software/system development
Our partners have complementary capabilities in:
- Command and control
- Sensor development
- Acoustic modelling and oceanography
- Human factors engineering
- System testing
- System integration.
We select individuals and groups from our diverse team, optimizing our ability to provide solutions for every project that we take on.
Our team is led by individuals with first-hand experience using acoustics for surveillance during military operations, experimental trials and for general monitoring tasks. We use this experience to ensure that our solutions are practical, user-friendly and relevant.
We have taken on more than 80 projects ranging from less than $1K to more than $100K, while we manage multiple standing offers with ceiling values approaching $1M.
Projects are executed concurrently using a similar code base, which requires careful technical and managerial coordination. All projects have been completed on schedule and budget to provide a wide variety of deliverables including:
- Data analysis packages
- Proven software prototypes
- System components
- User training
The members of the Akoostix team also have experience leading operational system development work on firm fixed price projects over $1M.
We use innovative modern processes to help ensure consistent and effective results.
Our processes foster reuse, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of our service delivery and our products. Wherever possible, we share solutions with our customers to reduce cost and provide value back to contributors in the form of low or no cost improvements and in some cases, royalties and license fees.
We are a collaborative business that focuses on building capability through strong teams. Our business model is built on success through reuse of technology for multiple applications and successful commercialization of useful research.
We use a proven process to rapidly conceive, evaluate and refine practical solutions for real operators. Our process then stands ready to rapidly address new challenges, quickly delivering upgraded capability.
We tailor our engineering processes to address the requirements of each project. We strive to establish agile lightweight processes that provide value, ensure consistent performance and are readily adopted as part of our team culture.
Our common set of flexible reliable tools helps reduce cost, facilitate collaboration and reduce time to market.
STAR and Adeos each benefit from flexible reusable software libraries. Their sophisticated design allows us to build layered modular solutions that will fit into any reasonable architecture. We can reduce complexity, cost and risk of delivery, while providing an efficient and effective continuous upgrade path. New solutions can be quickly migrated to existing products because the design remains compatible.
Our software will run on many platforms including Linux, OSX, MS Windows, and some embedded designs running Linux.
The software tools for analysis and research (STAR), which are used under license from DRDC, provide a wide variety of capabilities to support R&D including:
- Automated and manual data analysis
- Experimental monitoring
- Autonomous data collection and monitoring
- Algorithm prototyping and refinement
- Concept evaluation
Adeos is the foundation of our system solutions. Thus, all of our solutions are derived from the same software base. The designs and overall architecture are maintained across solutions, allowing various systems, budgets and innovations to contribute to a common capability, which is shared with the user base wherever possible.
