We are a small spin-out company with the roots in the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research PAS in Warsaw. The majority of staff are highly-qualified engineers, strongly motivated to implement innovative technological solutions in various areas of engineering. The team includes a few experts with PhD in technical sciences.
Intelligent technologies encompass interdisciplinary technological solutions, combining elements of mechanics, electronics and vibroacoustics. The solutions are based on intelligent materials e.g. piezoelectric materials in terms of hardware and on up-to-date or in-house-developed analyzing & control algorithms in terms of software.
Applications of intelligent technologies allow for improvement of the reliability of engineering structures (e.g. airplanes, vehicles, bridges) during their lifetime on the one hand and for preserving their integrity in extreme situations on the other. This goes in line with the requirements of safety engineering.
Adaptronica is the leader of the consortium, which carries out an international research project within the framework of the European Program Eurostars 2, through the National Center for Research and Development in Poland. Project title: “SOFTLAND – Airbag system for increasing the small aircraft safety during emergency landing”, E113407.
The SOFTLAND project aims at development of an adaptive airbag system for an ultralight aircraft weighing 600 kg. Today small aircrafts are equipped only with parachute to protect people on board during emergency landing. The role of the parachute is to enable survival of people who can still be injured after such landing. The SOFTLAND system will increase not only people’s safety on board but preserve airplane structure by making emergency landing soft.

Adaptronica is the leader of the consortium, which carries out a national research project within the framework of the Operational Program Intelligent Development, Sectorial R&D Programs, INNOSBZ, managed by the National Center for Research and Development. Project title: “ADBAG – Adaptive airbags for emergency landing of unmanned aerial vehicles”, POIR.01.02.00-00-0083/16.
The ADBAG project aims at development of an adaptive airbag system for a drone weighing up to 10 kg. The task of the adaptive airbag is twofold. First, the adaptive airbag system protects people or ground infrastructure from being struck by the drone in the event of its failure. Second, it protects against the destruction of the drone itself. This is especially important when there is valuable equipment or data on the board.
The adaptability of the system to be developed consists in adapting the airbag mode to the anticipated kinetic energy of the drone right before the impact with an object. Thanks to this feature, the system provides smooth landing for falls from different heights.
The adaptive airbag system, developed for the drone, can be rescaled for use in other aircraft of larger mass e.g. in the ULL-class ultralight aircraft.

Adaptronica is the leader of the consortium, which carries out a national research project within the framework of the Operational Program Intelligent Development, Sectorial R&D Programs, INNOLOT, managed by the National Center for Research and Development. Project title: “COMPRESS – Light composite aero-structures based on new manufacturing techniques including prestress”, POIR.01.02.00-00-0027/15.
The aim of the COMPRESS project is to study the non-autoclave methods of producing composite structures that improve the quality of the components of the ULL-class ultralight aircrafts. In addition, the research includes the structural health monitoring issues during operation, thanks to deformation sensors integrated with or attached to the structure.
The developed methods of composite manufacturing can also be used for other structural elements, not only in the aerospace industry.

Adaptronica Sp. z o.o. carries out a national research project – “ADAC System for stabilization of vibrations in satellite structures”, the Agreement No. 01.02.00-14-5731/16, within the framework of the Regional Operational Program – Mazovia Region 2014-2020, “R&D activity of enterprises”, managed by the Mazovian Center for EU Funds Distribution. Project Total value: 1.390.776,00 PLN. Project Grant value: 1.023.360,00 PLN. Project Duration: 2017-2018.
The ADAC project aims at development of a solution to stabilize the vibrations of satellite and spacecraft structures, both orbiters and landers. The ADAC solution is based on the PAR (Prestress-Accumulation/Release) concept of damping of vibrations induced by an impact on skeletal structures. It takes advantage of an innovative adaptive clutch, which allows for quick switching from the frame to truss mode of node operation.
With ADAC, the satellite structure and the optical or measuring devices installed on it, will have a longer lifespan and more accuracy. The most important result of the project will be the implementation of the ADAC system. Adaptronica plans to enter the chain of suppliers of the space industry large integrators, extend international activities and increase the competitiveness of the Polish space sector.
The proposed ADAC solution is primarily a response to the needs of the space industry. However, it can also find other terrestrial applications such as image stabilization, vibration damping of industrial machines or equipment in bioengineering.
