SYDNEY, Australia – 31 March 2011 – Electronic design software company Altium is aiding the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) in its research and development of defense science and technologies.
As a U.S. Department of Defense-designated, U.S. Navy University Affiliated Research Center (UARC), ARL maintains a long-term strategic relationship with the Navy and provides support for other U.S. armed forces. ARL acquired Altium Designer software and is transitioning its PCB design efforts to that tool.
ARL’s research capabilities are distributed among acoustics, guidance and control, thermal energy systems, hydrodynamics, hydroacoustics, propulsion, materials and manufacturing, navigation and GPS, communications and information, and education. Its facilities are located on the Pennsylvania State University campus.
Altium Designer provides a unified electronic product development environment, catering for all aspects of the electronic development process. Altium’s objective is to help electronics designers expand their role from designing the electronics in devices to the larger role of designing and engineering web-based "device ecosystems". These ecosystems will consist of the actual electronic devices, connected via the Internet, along with cloud-based software applications that run on this platform.
