Engineering Services Our Solutions

Cybicom Atlas Defence has been involved in numerous and diverse niche projects over the past two decades.  Initially gaining knowledge and experience in the Defence Electronics space and then applying these to numerous projects such as satellite engineering, mineral exploration and AgriTech in for form of novel hopping and counting devices for use in aerial sterilised insect release from UAVs

Composite Multi-Function Console

The Composite Multi-function Console is a sophisticated generation of consoles designed for naval and marine operations. It is constructed from a lightweight, fire-retardant composite material that is shielded for EMI protection.

The console is optimised for ease of maintenance allowing all internal components to be accessed via the front of the console. The internal computer can be brought forward, accessed or replaced via the hinged 30” display. All HMI components are customisable to adapt to the customer’s requirements.


  • Up to 30” high-resolution flat-panel display
  • 12.1” resistive touch screen
  • Intel Xeon 2.4GHz 19” rack-mountable computer
  • LED backlit 109-key keyboard with 50mm laser trackball
  • Removable 3-axis, 2-button joystick
  • Lightweight, fire-retardant construction
  • EMI/EMC protection
  • Customisable pushbutton panel
  • Shockmounts
  • Anti-condensation heating
  • Ease of maintenance
  • All internal components accessible from the front of the console
  • Multiple mount options available

Engineering Test Bed

The Engineering Test Bed (ETB) consists of a mock submarine combat information centre (CIC), 5 high fidelity ISUS 90-45 fabricated multifunction consoles and an integrated Periscope Simulator. This includes the associated electronics and signal processing hardware to provide a high fidelity test bed for integration and testing of new hardware and software.


The ETB provides a platform where new development and engineering changes can be carried out in a non-mission critical environment. This allows for a better engineering life cycle and has created the perfect space for research and development. The equipment is laid out in a space friendly manner with testing and development in mind.


The integration of OEM equipment with COTS equipment provides for a high fidelity cost effective solution. Use of re-configurable faceplates, COTS networks and server based application software deployment allows for fast reconfiguration of hardware and integration of new equipment for testing and qualification purposes.


The ETB can be reconfigured to provide for a submarine operations room team trainer environment where sonar operators, navigation officers, periscope operators, weapons officers and submarine captains can train in a life like environment honing their skills in a team CIC operation.


The Instructor work area is fitted with a 15 cell display matrix with selectable video switching and audio “snooping”. This allows instructors and evaluators to monitor the performance of the crew without disturbing the team’s operation. Recording and playback allows for debriefing of the team after the mission scenario has been completed. The ETB has already played host to successful qualification of new SA Navy submarine captains during its development phase.



  • 5 mock ISUS consoles
  • 5 COTS modified cabinets with integrated OEM hardware
  • GRP mock submarine CIC hull
  • Instructor Work Area with switchable 15 screen video matrix
  • Reconfigurable wiring panel modules
  • COTS modified anti-flicker monitors
  • Fully integrated mode with ISUS and Periscope Simulator capabilities

Escape Trunk Lighting & Signal System

The Escape Trunk Lighting and Signalling System (ETLSS) is installed on board class 209 submarines and is used as a means of optical, via light signalling, and acoustic, via a buzzer in the CIC, communication when deploying divers/special forces team when carrying out special operations (deliver and receive divers/special forces team) or crew escape from a submarine if the submarine has sunk and/or the submarine is damaged. Hence, this system has been design and built with safety in mind and forms part of the safety critical items on board the submarine.


The ETLSS equipment is used as the means of signalling to indicate diver presence outside the submarine, when the Access and Escape Trunk can be filled with water and pressurised, when hatches can be opened and closed and the when the escape trunk can be drained and vented permitting entry into the submarine or exit from the submarine.


Shock, Vibration and Explosion:

The ETLSS is qualified against the MIL-S-901 D (class B) specifcation.


Electromagnetic Compatibility and Inteference:

The ETLSS is qualified against the MIL-STD-461F specifcation


Environmental Conditions for Inboard Equipment:

The ETLSS inboard equipment is designed and tested for the following conditions:

  • Temperature:
    • Transport and Storage: -30 C to +70 C
    • Normal Operation: 0 C to +50 C
  • Atmospheric Humidity:
    • Normal Operation: max 80% at +35 C
    • Temporary Operation : 100% at +35 C for one hour
  • Ambient Pressure:
    • Normal Operation: 800 to 1400 hPa
    • Temporary Operation: 600 to 800 hPa (max 3 minutes)

Environmental Conditions for Outboard Equipment:

The ETLSS outboard equipment is designed and tested for the following conditions:

  • Temperature:
    • Transport and Storage: -30 C to +70 C
    • Normal Operation: 0 C to +50 C
  • Water Pressure:
    • Normal Operation: up to 45 bar
    • Test Pressure: 60 bar (max 15 minutes)
  • Power Supply:
    • 115 V 60 Hz single phase ± 5% (max 55VA)
  • Battery Backup and System holdup time:
    • The ETLSS provides for a mimum operational backup time in excess of 8 hours before switching to emergency mode.
