Advanced System Design (A-SYS-D) is as an independent research and development bureau. The company is specialized on system solutions especially in the field of various autonomous applications. We have successful experience of developing oil and gas pipeline inline inspection robots, sea bottom seismic stations for geophysics research, unmanned aerial vehicles and control systems for railroad maintenance machines. We also have developed a number of custom system-on-chip solutions, some satellite electronics and even several flight computers..
During last two decades A-SYS-D company has completed a number of successful projects in various fields of application. The results of research and development sold either as designs or as series of products or as spin-off companies so the company is financially independent and all new developments were always funded by own funds only. Many of our designs were successfully proven in field/flight and protected by numerous (over 30) patents
Over 20 various models of sea bottom geophysics data acquisition stations were developed by the team during 1990-s for 2D and 3D seismic imaging under sea bottom. Series of our seismic stations were successfully used in hydrocarbons resources exploration off-shore in polar waters. Special data acquisition system version was developed for Antarctica’s subglacial lakes seismo-acoustic research.
Apart from system solutions we have a huge experience of sophisticated SoC design as on FPGA so on ASIC platform. Since 2001 we operate as a local technical centre and IP solution partner for Microsemi Corp. SoC Division (Formerly known as Actel Corp.), implementing various high integration HDL designs. Our own IP core portfolio includes various CPUs ranging from Forth processors up to PowerPC-compatible chipsets, high performance hardware data processing accelerators and various modern interfaces. We utilize that knowledge to develop various onboard computers for autonomous systems. Over a dozen of them were developed through the years, including satellite flight computer prototype with a patented original architecture of dynamic re-configuration and multiple redundancy based on a modern spacecraft networking philosophy and state-of-the-art hardware. We have also developed various customized unmanned vehicles central computers. Our weather data processing module is now still orbiting the Earth onboard of a meteorological satellite.
Since 2012 our key research subject was hybrid-electric hardware for manned and unmanned all-terrain mobility applications. Since then, a completely new power management and control system was developed, as a fundamental basis for a family of new products. Designed under highest safety standards, our unique low voltage system appears to be suitable even for amphibious vehicles. A number of breakthrough solutions were also developed for ATV control and navigation, including extra long range spread spectrum remote control system with first person view video channel, «follow me» autopilot and radio-optical navigation system for outdoor AGVs. The Vanquisher, an amphibious all-terrain vehicle specially designed for alpine rescue operations, is the first of a number planned products to utilize our research achievements.
