Dave Hart, senior mechanical engineer, receives the Raytheon Innovation Award on behalf of ATR for work on the DARPA Tactical Expandable Maritime Platform (TEMP) in 2012. ATR received the award as part of an event held May 4, 2013 recognizing outstanding Raytheon suppliers and subcontractors. Presenting the award are, from left to right, Robert Curbeam (Vice President, IDS), Dan Crowley (President, IDS), and Mike Shaughnessy (Vice President, IDS).
ATR sold its first solar electrical car charging system. The system is scheduled to be installed in Bethesda, Maryland in May of this year.
ATR installed two hybrid solar tracking systems in Maryland and Michigan for technology demonstrations.
ATR will use the Maryland Energy Administration award to offset labor costs associated with the production of its Single Pole Tracker.
ATR is pleased to announce a new ATR energy product for the commercial market. This device is used to mount solar panels on utility light poles and provide automatic sun-tracking to maximize the solar energy harvest. Power produced from the solar panel is converted to AC power and fed back into the utility grid. Highly reliable and energy-efficient sun tracking is performed by ATR's patent-pending "bio-logic" controller and mechanism. Existing light poles provides a ready mounting structure and a convenient interface with the utility power grid. ATR's debut product is targeted towards business parks and commercial lighting. Models for general roadway lighting and utility poles will soon follow. ATR will manufacture these products at our Columbia Md. Facilities. Congratulations!!
ATR has recently been awarded three task orders under our Seaport E contract N00178-04-D-4004 for engineering, technical and support services. These task orders will provide technical support to several Navy R&D laboratories.

Several new hires came onboard recently. A mechanical engineer, aerospace engineer and an administrative assistant started work at Columbia headquarters in May and June. Two electronics engineers, one computer scientist, one PhD physicist and five summer interns started on-site at NSWC Carderock in May and June. Two more electronics engineers will be starting at Carderock in July 2009.
I am pleased to announce that adding to ATR's family of services, a new branch, Technical Publications Group, has been established within the Engineering & Systems Division (Code 100), expanding the Division's already wide range of capabilities. The new branch will be designated Code 190 and led by Bob Colegrove.
Code 190 will provide a full range of technical writing and publishing services to both direct and in-house projects, including engineering and scientific reports, technical manuals, journal articles, conference papers, and various program-related documents. Through their dedicated support and effective resource deployment, ATR will achieve high quality products and standard, improved cost effectiveness, and rapid turn-around that are expected of us by our clients.
Two new contracts were awarded in the area of Modeling and Simulation of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) caused by Blast Effects. DARPA SBIR Phase I was awarded December 19, 2008 and a contract under the ONR Challenge Program was awarded on March 4, 2009.
