Challenge - Dangerous conditions lead to extreme technologies that pave the way for safety. Kutta Technologies creates command-control-communications systems for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DoD, and other government entities. Kutta needed hardened product development expertise to commercialize a new wireless communications technology, the Digital Radio for Underground Miners.
ATOM was tasked with developing an intrinsically safe product solution for use in hazardous environments such as coal mines.
Results - The ATOM team managed all aspects of the product development effort for this ground breaking technology. The process included research in a coal mine 8 miles deep as well as engineering and testing to meet tough government regulations. The final solution delivered a long anticipated technology into an industry needing advancement in communications.
