The Defense Systems Group at PTR creates control and communications solutions for military and industrial customers. Our range of capabilities start with software and firmware design, include microprocessor based circuit designs all the way through distributed rack-mounted systems solutions. Existing customers include the US Navy, US Air Force, Northrop Grumman, L3, Boeing and Crane Aerospace.
Software and firmware capabilities include Windows, Unix and Linux-based human interface applications and real-time embedded algorithms in firmware. PTR specializes in the customization of real-time operating systems and embedded Linux to perform deadline-driven control tasks. We offer the expertise to modify kernel-resident code, to author board support packages, and to code drivers and libraries in support of embedded applications that meet strict deadline and real-time scheduling requirements.
Custom circuit designs augment our software and firmware expertise. The software we create runs on both commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and custom in-house circuit designs. PTR provides component and card level solutions to our DoD and commercial customers. Our skills include a full range of schematic design, gate array and logic design, simulation, manufacturing and quality assurance capabilities. We specialize in PowerPC and ARM based control solutions with custom sensor and actuator circuitry.
Do you require a tested and complete rack-mounted or custom-mounted solution? PTR leverages our software and firmware expertise, custom circuits and cards and systems experience to produce turn-key solutions. We provide equipment racks built to survive harsh environments and shield the components from extreme external vibration and shock. These complete solutions include VME, CPCI or ATCA enclosures, machinery control elements, custom wiring harnesses and the right combination of COTS and PTR hardware to meet your requirements.
