ATL Laboratories

Organized for Solutions

Advanced-computing and information technologies span many challenging functional domains. To effectively attack these diverse challenges, we are organized into five focused, collaborative laboratories: Advanced Concepts, Applied Sciences, Informatics, Intelligent Robotics and Spectrum Systems.


Advanced Concepts Laboratory

We are ATL's center of excellence for developing classified technologies. Our uniquely skilled engineering staff solves some of the nation's most demanding challenges. We focus this work in three research areas:

  • Adaptive Application Networking
  • Automated Cyber Testing
  • Information Operations
 

Applied Sciences Laboratory

We increase system capabilities that accelerate the pace of research and development though modeling, informatics, and formal methods using advanced computational tools. We do this in two broad research areas:

  • Computational Physics
  • Advanced Software Technologies

Informatics Laboratory

We develop technologies to radically improve the timeliness, scope, quality and confidence of analysts and decision makers. Human experts in fields like strategic analysis, intelligence analysis, and command and control bring unique skills and insights, and IL technologies focus on designing systems that integrate the triad of human expertise, machine intelligence, and massive quantities of information. We are organized into four research areas:

  • Information Exploitation and Understanding
  • Model-Based Reasoning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • User-Centered Interaction
 

Intelligent Robotics Laboratory

We are focused on developing and applying robotics and autonomy to real-time systems for military platforms. We are organized into three interrelated research areas:

  • Perception
  • Human Robotic Interaction
  • Robotic Control

Spectrum Systems Laboratory

We research and develop innovative technologies related to spectrum usage, management and control across various media such as Radio Frequency, photonics and acoustics. This work focuses on four research areas:

  • Advanced Processing Physics and Sensors
  • Spectrum Awareness and Surveillance
  • Spectrum Exploitation Management
  • Spectrum Protection and Denial
