DS2 Integrates ATAK with Nauticus Robotics underwater robotic systems

DS2 was recently awarded a contract to integrate the Android Tactical Awareness Kit (ATAK) with Nauticus Robotics’ next wave of sustainable subsea technology. 

Nauticus is powered by a world-class team with decades of experience in robotics, engineering, industrial automation, and green tech. They specialize in cloud-based subsea robots and software to combat the global impacts on the world’s marine environment.  The DS2 Team will build on their years of ATAK and TAK Server plug-in development experience in working closely with Nauticus engineers to develop an ATAK plug-in that creates a Robot Operating System (ROS) 2-ATAK bridge. The ROS2-ATAK bridge will provide middleware translations between ROS2 and Cursor on Target (COT) equivalents or substitutes. This will enable ATAK to receive and send both relaying telemetry and operator commands to and from Nauticus’ autonomous vehicles.  This solution will allow operators to use familiar tools to control the robotics systems while providing full situational awareness to the operator and any other device in the TAK ecosystem.  


“DS2 is very excited to begin this work with Nauticus. Our experience in developing ATAK plug-in’s and integrating with various commercial products has grown over the years. This integration significantly broadens the use of ATAK.”, said Jeff Williams, Director of Operations.   


DS2 is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business providing a full spectrum of life-cycle software engineering, application development, and integration solutions to DoD, federal and commercial clients. Utilizing agile development procedures, DS2 specializes in modeling and simulation; LVC training; and geospatial, ATAK, and mission planning solutions in support of the warfighter.
