Ideal Innovations is a leader in providing system integration, program management, and overall force protection to the Department of Defense, commercial entities, U.S. federal entities, and foreign customers.
We are experienced in synthetic chemistry, including organic, inorganic, and inert atmosphere syntheses. We are also experienced in synthetic materials science, such as epitaxial crystal growth and thin film deposition of metals, oxides, nitrides, and polymers. We have developed and patented new materials and processes for electronic devices and complex microfabrication. We fabricate novel formulations and microstructures in silicone and urethane polymers. We are skilled in all typical chemical, surface science, and physical laboratory analyses. We have applied some of these methods to the enhancement of biometric acquisition and analysis.
We have the expertise and skills to deliver Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) capabilities for long-range detection, tracking and classification of potential threats.
We develop fire-control solutions and computer control of automated weapons systems to engage threats with kinetic and non-kinetic munitions. We have designed a wearable UAS detection system that provides dismounted soldiers with early warning of potential threat UASs, tracks them and provides firing solutions and computer assisted weapon orientation for soldiers to engage the threat. We have also developed UAS systems to pursue and engage threat UASs to capture them in-flight and deliver them to safe locations for neutralization and forensic examination.
We have designed, developed and fielded sensitive compact Radio Frequency (RF) receivers to detect, classify and locate signatures of threats (including UASs). In support of Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE) operations, we have developed lightweight, hand-held systems capable of rapidly detecting, classifying and locating electronic systems and electronic components (those that are in operation and those that are not powered) in rooms and buildings. Also in support of SSE operations, we have developed an inexpensive hand-held device to quickly map the exterior dimensions of building and the interior rooms of buildings to identify hidden spaces in the buildings.
Field evaluation of airborne sensor systems
I3 has extensive experience testing airborne systems for remote sensing of IEDs and other types of ground targets.
From preliminary test planning and sensor selection to final analysis of system performance, the I3 team has tested sensors including optical sensors throughout the visible and infrared spectra, radar at low and high altitudes, lidar systems and more. We have experience directing tests with up to a dozen aircraft and multiple teams from Government and industry. Our services include:
· Conducting site surveys
· Developing detailed test plans and schedules
· Selecting, fabricating and emplacing targets and surrogates
· Managing logistics of teams, aircraft, targets and facilities
· Managing day-to-day flight operations
· Collecting ground truth
· Analyzing results and producing technical reports
Our experienced staff members provide an effective interface to test site personnel as well as customers and sponsors throughout the process.
I3 Field Service Representatives and Technicians train, install, operate and repair the Base Expeditionary Targeting and Surveillance Systems (BETSS-C) and provide operational subject matter expertise in support of military customers in the middle-East.
These systems provide the warfighter various force protection sensor assets, offering the ability to continuously monitor activities throughout the local operational area by augmenting the Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Systems. We are also responsible for the installation and training on a wide range of additional tactical and permanent systems supporting ground-based security sensors and systems (e.g., Access control, CCTV, Infrared sensors, Fiber optic cable and fiber optic lines of detection, ground-based radars, thermal imaging systems, RF links and communications, including microwave and the Tactical Automated Security System (TASS) suite of sensors). Additionally, we perform routine system maintenance and analysis functions including: hardware configurations; adding, removing and replacing hardware components; performing hardware and software diagnostic; and repairing printed circuit boards.
Rapid Prototyping, Integration and Testing
I3‘s combination of experience and know-how leads to superior integration, testing and deployment of new systems and designs to solve difficult challenges.
By carefully applying systems engineering processes, we have successfully brought systems from concept to operational assessment while remaining mindful of all stakeholder needs and life-cycle considerations. Whether on a laboratory bench or the ramp of an austere airfield, we customize our services to each customer’s unique need for:
- Rapid scientific investigation
- Rapid fielding support
- Rapid prototype integration
- Technology evaluation and demonstrations
- Software interface mock-ups and design studies
- Software development, training and maintenance
- Test planning and execution, including flight tests
- System performance analysis
