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.

DS2 geared up for STEM education this past Saturday by hosting a Game Changers event with the HSU Educational Foundation. The Game Changers is a program that provides interactive, shared science and technology events for local families to inspire and encourage critical thinking and problem solving within the STEM community. Business and educational opportunities such as these sparks conversations among family members and provides an avenue for participants to apply educational principles to real world applications. DS2 was proud to take part in an event this year for the chance to excite kids about the wonderful world of programming! With the help of DS2 team members, Game-changers experienced hands-on activities learning about robotics, the Unity game engine, VR, and Android development.
DS2 is developing a plug-in to the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) platform that integrates with the Air Force’s Geospatial Expeditionary Planning Tool (GeoExPT).
Dynamic Software Solutions (DS2) as a team member under Torch Technologies, were awarded a one-year base, and four option periods, Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Unmanned Systems Technologies (EODUST) contract by the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, Airbase Acquisition Branch (AFCEC/CXAE). The goal of this project is to Research, Develop, Test, and Evaluate (RDT&E) technologies and capabilities that address Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Rapid Airfield Damage Repair (RADR), Civil Engineering Operations, and Logistics and Mission Support.
Dynamic Software Solutions (DS2), as a team member under Belle Artificial Intelligence Corporation, participated in a four-week Automated Analytics Virtual Sprint. SOFWERX, in concert with USSOCOM Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF), hosted this event to identify technologies that are relevant to assist with automated analytics during Phase 0 Irregular Warfare (IW) operations.
