About Us

Solinnov Team

Solinnov Pty Ltd is a wholly Australian owned small to medium enterprise that provides customised solutions in high-performance embedded signal processing systems predominantly for the Australian Government and Defence sectors. Established in 2010, we design algorithms to understand and manipulate the radio frequency spectrum and implement these algorithms in software defined radios.

Our key areas of expertise include:

  • Electronic countermeasures for Government and Defence clients

  • Leading edge solutions in real-time digital signal processing

  • Field programmable gate arrays

We are a bunch of geeks having fun. We value passion and self-improvement through a willingness to learn, the courage to try, and a desire for excellence. We foster a friendly and supportive environment while promoting a commitment to quality and integrity.

Solinnov’s headquarters are in Adelaide and we have a team in Melbourne. Please contact us to find out more.

Chris Mandalov

Engineering Director, Ultra Electronics Avalon Systems

Ultra Electronics Avalon Systems engaged the services of Solinnov Pty Ltd for implementation of several novel and highly innovative signal processing algorithms for incorporation on Virtex-6 FPGAs. Sanka made significant contributions and greatly assisted in maintaining schedule at a critical stage of high priority ADF program. Sanka’s unblemished reputation in the field of firmware engineering, was instrumental in Ultra’s ability to instill confidence in our customer that we had both the capacity and capability to meet their needs. Ultra was extremely pleased with Sanka’s performance and would not hesitate in recommending him to any other organisation seeking a highly competent and diligent firmware engineer.

Peter Jenkins

Managing Director, JEDS

JEDS has been utilising Solinnov’s services since early 2013. During this time Sanka and his team of IT professionals have worked with JEDS from the design phases of major projects through to final product delivery. We have embedded them within our product teams and they have consistently been able to come up with innovative solutions that have met or exceeded all our requirements. They have met all of our deadlines and their communication and compliance with contractual requirements has been exemplary.

Dr. James Giesbrecht
