Background & Design Requirements

Neptec reached out to Design 1st to integrate their custom PCBs and 3D LiDar technology into a rugged housing that would withstand the world’s harshest working environments during operation. Design requirements included:

Engineering Challenges

Implementing Design 1st’s proven process, the team was able to overcome several obstacles to:
alpha prototype test
Functional Prototype Early Stage Lab Test
3D Cad testing
Simulations of FOV on Machine Mounting Locations

Project Results

Through creativity and technical understanding, the Design 1st team developed Neptec’s flagship product:

Neptec Acquired by Maxar Technologies for $42 Million

“We needed an up and running engineering team and we needed them right away. We found that Design 1st had a lot of interesting ideas and paths that we probably wouldn’t have thought of because they have rugged electronics experience.”
