Electro-Optical Mechanical Engineering Services

Leonardo DRS Specializes in the Design of Electro-Mechanical and Opto-Mechanical Systems for Rugged Environments

Systems Engineering Services

Leonardo DRS has the talent to support your product design. Our multi-disciplined electro-optical engineering teams can provide turn-key design services or can augment your existing staff with added bandwidth and capability. Our expertise includes system design, requirements development, and system partitioning & requirements allocation for complex electro-mechanical and electro-optical products with embedded processing where thermal management, power consumption, and performance are key to providing your customer with a solution that meets their objectives.

Test and Certification

Whether for our products or our customers products, testing and certification are key components of the product design life cycle. Leonardo DRS can help with test planning, test execution, and agency certifications. This can include in-house Design Verification Testing or formal testing for MIL-STD, safety, or regulatory requirements. Our team can design, develop, and integrate custom testing equipment to aid in reliability growth.

Mechanical Design

Leonardo DRS specializes in the design of electro-mechanical and opto-mechanical systems for rugged environments for the Defense and Oil/Gas Industries as well consumer products where thermal and structural considerations are key to a successful product. We provide design services for anything from electronics packaging for consumer devices to structural and thermal analysis for complex, high reliability systems. We have experience transitioning your prototype designs to production – including critical source and material selections, tooling & assembly flow, and DFMA for high volume.

Embedded Software Development

Leonardo DRS’ team of software engineers supports embedded systems development from bare metal on low-cost microcontrollers to custom OS, device driver, and application development on large multi-core networked processors. We specialize in video processing and motion control.

Electronics Design

Leonardo DRS’ electrical and computer engineers design custom boards with embedded processors, programmable logic, high performance low noise analog, high bandwidth digital, power supplies and battery management capable of operating in extreme environmental conditions with limited power consumption. Our team also has a strong background in logic design, motor drive, and control systems.

Analysis and Modeling

The best design decisions are supported by data. Leonardo DRS has the analysis and modeling capability to provide that support, including structural analysis, control and motion simulation, circuit and timing simulation, and imaging range and performance modeling.
