D2K works as a collaborative, but independent, software and system integration contractor with each of the clients we support. Each client’ s objectives and needs are uniquely different and require a systematic design approach that addresses the objectives in the most cost effective and timely manner. This can best be done working closely with our client’s technical staff and becoming intimately aware of the problems that need resolution.

SSC Engineers invent, design, and test innovative software tools, algorithms, and systems that enable the next generation of space exploration. These technologies are then available for commercial licensing to stimulate the U.S. economy.
D2K has been working closely with SSC Engineers in the following areas:
- Invent, Design, and Test
- NASA Platform for Autonomous Systems
- Advanced Wireless Sensors
Founded originally in 1955 as a division of General Dynamics, General Atomics (“GA”) and its affiliated companies now constitute one of the world's leading resources for high-technology systems ranging from the nuclear fuel cycle to electromagnetic systems, remotely operated surveillance aircraft, airborne sensors, and advanced electronic, wireless and laser technologies.
D2K has been an active partner in the electric motor-based Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) system developed for the Department of Defense/U.S.Navy which provides for aircraft deceleration during aircraft carrier recovery operations. AAG allows for arrestment of a broad range of aircraft, reducing manning and maintenance, and provides higher reliability and safety margins. AAG's design uses simple, proven energy-absorbing water turbines coupled to a large induction motor for fine control of the arresting forces
