Torch possesses prototyping capabilities in electromechanical, mechanical, optical, and software systems. We perform state-of-the-art research, development, design, fabrication, testing, and evaluation of electronic, electromechanical, and mechanical partial and full-scale systems. We use the results in concept development, proof of concept, component integration, and live system test and evaluation. We conduct electronic design and fabrication at all levels, including breadboard, brassboard, and flight-qualified printed circuit board (PCB). Results are integrated with mechanical design and machined assemblies to make up the final test articles. Our delivered systems include a multipurpose miniaturized airborne data logger, specialized airborne underwing video pods, multi-band optical flight hardware, sensor registration algorithms, and UAS/weapons control software. All of these programs involve an extensive use of inexpensive Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) hardware and software components.

Rapid Innovation and Prototyping Relationships
Torch maintains memberships in multiple DoD and industry consortia. As a member of the Defense Ordinance Technology Consortium (DOTC), our goal is to collaborate among Government, industry partners, and Academia for purposes of ordnance technology development and prototyping. As an active member of the National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC), Torch’s goal is to provide advanced research in a broad range of ground vehicle, autonomous, and system technologies.
