Research and Development Engineering Services
We have extensive experience working in all phases of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance R&D — be it concept design and development, prototyping and demonstration, adapting existing baseline models, or transitioning sensor prototypes to final product status.
And it is this broad technical and operational experience, combined with our proven program management capabilities, that provides our customers with a low-risk path to effective solutions that meet program objectives and perform in the field.
Our services include:
- Mechanical, electrical, and optical design
- Software and algorithm development
- Low SWaP high-performance embedded processors
- Sensor design and miniaturization
- Systems integration
- Flight testing
Logos Technologies uses a methodical yet flexible approach to system engineering. We apply “best practice” R&D methods and a tailored, iterative approach to maximize innovation, while meeting customer needs.
All our R&D projects are executed based on Department of Defense (DoD) 5000 acquisition processes and practices set forth by the Defense Acquisition University/DoD Systems Management College.
In addition, Logos Technologies applies its system engineering processes during each phase of the R&D lifecycle to ensure that our solutions meet all performance and operational requirements.
Adaptability is key to successful concept and prototype development. Logos Technologies maintains regular communication with our customers throughout the concept development and design process to allow for adjustments along the way.
As part of our approach, we begin with a set of in-depth trade studies conducted by subject matter experts.
Once we identify viable options, we perform an analysis of alternatives to determine the best concepts for presentation to the customer. Throughout this iterative process, we ensure that the results of the concept development and design phase meet all our customer needs.
Our strength is our process. When designing a prototype for customers, Logos Technologies conducts regular design reviews, mitigating risk and ensuring the design meets all requirements. Then, when the customer approves a design, we move forward to fabricate, assemble, and integrate the prototype.
All along the way, the prototype—whether developed from a brand-new design or an existing baseline model (our own or one provided by another party)—is thoroughly tested to ensure it meets every functional and performance requirement, after which it is demonstrated to the customer.
Customers trust Logos Technologies because we recognize the importance of sourcing dependable partners, rapidly developing multiple iterations of prototypes, and collaborating with partners and suppliers early in the design process to achieve a working integrated system that meets customer needs.
In addition to design, testing, integration, and training, our team brings with a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, including:
- A cleanroom for sensitive optical and electrical assembly
- Dedicated machine shop
- Reconfigurable systems integration lab
- Optical calibration and test equipment
- IESD-protected electronics laboratory
- Lab space to support all levels of integration and testing
- Thermal chambers, vibration tables, and two-axis rate tables
- Internal HALT and EMC/EMI testing infrastructure
Test and Evaluation
At Logos Technologies, we have led both component- and system-level tests and evaluations on our wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) and multi-sensor systems, including Constant Hawk, Kestrel, Redkite, and Serenity. And we apply those very same R&D skills and services to all our sensors and systems.
We are also available to test and evaluate systems designed and prototyped by other contractors.
With facilities in Northern Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina, Logos Technologies is positioned to provide quick and reliable production and manufacturing services. We have successfully and repeatedly transitioned R&D projects to final product status — delivering systems that satisfy all customer requirements, at the lowest possible cost.
We have implemented a robust quality assurance/quality control system and documentation in product development and delivery processes. Our software processes have achieved CMMI Level 3 certification, and our hardware processes incorporate supplier quality compliance inspection/testing, intermediate verification procedures, and factory acceptance testing.
