November 6, 2019 - ATR Employee Receives Shock and Vibration Exchange Lifetime Achievement Award

Congratulations to Mr. Gregory Harris, a Principal Engineer with ATR, on receiving the Shock and Vibration Exchange Lifetime Achievement Award at the SAVE conference in Atlanta, Georgia on November 6, 2019. This award honors individuals who, through years of professional dedication, have made outstanding contributions to knowledge and practice in the field of shock and vibration.

During his exemplary Navy civilian engineering career, Mr. Harris became a principal subject matter expert on the effects of underwater bulk charge weapons. Over a 20-year period, Mr. Harris led the technical execution of a collaborative program with the German Bundeswehr to develop and deploy simulation software known as DYSMAS that accurately predicts the complex interaction of underwater weapons with Naval structures.

ATR is proud of Greg's achievements and his continuing pursuit of excellence in service to our Navy clients.

March 18, 2010 - ATR is pleased to announce Tracking Solar Mounts Click for More Information

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!!
