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.

Projects

BlueBottle Expendable Electronic Warfare Payload

A highly flexible, affordable software defined radio platform

The BlueBottle is a tactical software defined radio (SDR) that is being developed by Solinnov with the help of Defence Innovation Hub, sponsored by the Australian Army.

The BlueBottle has been developed as an SDR framework that can deploy flexible mission apps on demand. The BlueBottle hardware is designed to be expendable.

Electronic Countermeasures Test Bed

A countermeasure technique research, development, and validation tool

The RF Electronic Countermeasures Test Bed (ECMTB) receives signals transmitted by emitters. It determines which countermeasures should be used and transmits the jamming signals.

The ECMTB has undergone a series of hardware and software upgrades over several phases. Solinnov's phase involved porting obsolescent components to replacement solutions.

Direction Finding Antenna Pulse Descriptor Word Generation System

Designed for the CEWIP Defence Program

Under the Collins Class submarine upgrade project, Solinnov designed the pulse descriptor word generator subsystem for the direction finding antenna system led by Jenkins Engineering Defence Systems.

Multi-channel High Performance Tuneable Receiver

Designed for Project Nullarbor (JP2043 Phase 3A)

Solinnov designed the high-precision configurable multi-channel receiver system for high frequency (HF) direction finding for the HF modernisation program. We supplied these receiver systems to Ebor Systems to be integrated into the Boeing solution.

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

Project Manager, Ebor Computing

Solinnov was a key contributor to the development Ebor Computing’s proprietary FPGA core. We were very pleased with the support and help Solinnov provided us.

Careers

At Solinnov, we innovate and implement algorithms to make sense of complex signals in FPGA-based embedded real time systems. Our primary areas of development are wireless communications, electronic warfare, and radar. Our areas of expertise include digital signal processing algorithm design, algorithm implementation on digital hardware systems, real-time embedded software design, and application software design.

We are always looking for talented and passionate firmware and software engineers. Please check this page for current employment opportunities.

Applicants must be eligible for an Australian Government security clearance from the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency and hence must either hold or be eligible for Australian citizenship.
