Atlantec Enterprise Solutions Awarded Navy Contract

Tuesday, April 29, 2003
Atlantec Enterprise Solutions has received an SBIR Phase II contract from the Office of Naval Research. The project, entitled Connector Architecture for CAD and CAM Systems is a 24-month project totaling $850,000. Based on open standards, the "Connector Architecture" will streamline and simplify the information flow required to support production processes. It will also facilitate collaboration between shipyards, design agents, and subcontractors on navy and large commercial contracts. As part of the project, Atlantec will also develop two shipbuilding CAM applications. With Northrop Grumman Ship Systems Ingalls Operations and Sandia National Laboratories, Atlantec will develop and test a commercial version of AUTOGEN, an automated-robot-control system developed by Sandia. Working with Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW) Kiel Germany, Atlantec will develop and demonstrate an automatic nesting module for shipbuilding. "This project is a great opportunity for Atlantec to leverage our core competencies - engineering and production in shipbuilding," said Bryan Miller, President of Atlantec. The SBIR Program, sponsored by various Federal agencies is the largest source of early stage R&D funding in the U.S. for small, high tech companies. The goal of SBIR is to spawn product development for both defense and commercial applications.
