Blackline is a technology design/prototype/build firm operating in the commercial and government secure systems market. We provide turnkey software, firmware and/or hardware solutions from initial concept, specification, design, through to production. Our hardware systems run the gamut from hand-held devices to large-scale robot control systems. Our systems are usually built around a core of solid communications expertise. Our software runs on everything from cell-phones to tablets to desktops to back-end servers.
Blackline has an extensive portfolio of successful hardware designs and products employing:
Blackline maintains a dedicated group of systems software developers working with a variety of operating systems and software development tools (Windows/Linux/iOS/Android/vxWorks, Visual Studio, Embarcadero, CodeComposerStudio, Eclipse/Java, etc.) This group undertakes software only projects as well as bonded system/embedded projects. Examples would include robotic controls and consoles and/or secure web-based network/system delivery and management tools. Blackline systems often take advantage of our in-house expertise in digital signal processing. Blackline maintains an inventory of tested DSP infrastructure and algorithms available for projects, including audio codecs, video codecs, filters, modems, signal activity detectors, etc.
Palladium study and design considerations to explore performance and usability of existing power line carrier standards with focus on susceptibility to noise, in residence coverage, interference with existing technology and the ability to reach beyond the panel/meter base.
Enhanced security networked PC platform for hosting law enforcement Information Identification and Collection analytics. A part of the Blackline System Corporation’s secure data backhaul architecture, the Iodine system allows for centralized GUI-based network configuration and key management functions, while putting necessary ident technology out in detachments and other remote offices to both assist local crime fighting efforts and to serve as a distributed network of IICS collection nodes
Cesium is a set of alternative storage mechanisms designed for use with laptops Mechanisms explored included:
Exploration included assessment of detectability for method falling into categories for casual examination, detailed examination, and hard defeat attempts.
Available for discussion only
Secure connection for a Windows™ 7 - PC, to a high security, high reliability network.
Iridium is an end-to-end electronics and software robot control solution. Currently deployed in a large bomb disposal robot. System comprises 3 separate robot motor and feature control card types, a main control card, as well as a RF or Tether connected Command and Control station featuring two touch screen interfaces.
Einsteinium is an IP-enabled full spectrum characterization and signals scanning system that provides a quiet and ongoing RF monitoring service. Installed in a boardroom, office, or access-way, system automatically sweeps its sensors across the radio spectrum looking for anomalies that signal unwanted surveillance activity.
Compares scanned RF energy against normal background levels, with unknown signals raising alerts to networked threat monitoring system.
A career at Blackline is the work you dreamed of but never thought you would find. We design and build hardware and software for elegant yet sometimes quirky systems that are uniquely tailored to our customer’s needs. Most of our systems involve some sort of communications component like mobile, wifi, or more traditional high speed networks.
All of our systems involve software from the board level all the way up to wamp-based GUIs and dedicated multiplatform mobile or desktop apps. It's exciting work but it is also very demanding. We are always looking for people who are confident in their abilities and who have good team skills too. Some of our work involves supplying tools to keep Canada safe and so we also need our people to be squeaky clean and security clearable.
Blackline is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada. We offer a competitive salary and benefits, flexible hours and time-off policies and a dynamic and fun work environment. Blackline welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
