Atlantis Manufacturing Management Services
High Level Project Facilitation and Engineering Consultancy
R&D with Full Design Capability
Over the past 5 years, Atlantis has proven its ability to design and develop medium calibre ammunition solutions, as well as innovative weapon concepts. We have worked in consultation with a number of weapon manufacturers to develop new highly innovative ammunition and propulsion technology solutions to satisfy tactical shortcomings identified in currently available ordinance. Although initial research and development within Atlantis was primarily defence-related, many of the programmes resulted in a number of substantial commercial and industrial applications. This has resulted in the group structure expanding to accommodate a diverse capability.
Within the past three years, Atlantis has appointed a number of engineers specialising in automation and robotics, electronic design and high level programming. We have successfully produced and supplied numerous machines and production systems for both conventional applications, as well as specialised defence applications. These include automated ammunition loading machines and high speed production drilling machines.

Due to industry requirements for large volume production capability to service international orders, Atlantis has partnered with industry specialists to establish specific production centres of excellence, capable of supplying quality components, on time and in budget. The current production capacity exceeds 175 000 components per month.
