Rapid Prototyping and Development

The engineers in our Panama City Beach, Florida, facility, formerly known as Undersea Solutions Group (USG), are able to take operational requirements and generate system design requirements, develop conceptual through detail designs; and rapidly build and test full scale prototypes. We have the capability to go from design models to hardware under one roof, where we set schedules and manufacturing priorities. Our shop capabilities include precision machining, welding and assembly, composites mold building and parts manufacturing, electronics design and fabrication from circuit cards to full assemblies. We turn ideas into reality.

Our talented design engineers in a variety of disciplines including systems, mechanical, ocean, aeronautical, electrical, computer, human system integration, and production engineering. They provide a full range of engineering services from requirements analyses, concept through detail design, prototyping, technical documentation development, and engineering analyses. They turn good ideas into reality, meeting the needs of today’s sailors and soldiers.
