Sonartech Atlas website

Sonartech Atlas website
Sonartech ATLAS designs and manufactures submarine sonar systems for military applications. The manufacturer is a division of ATLAS Elektronik, which is owned by Thyssen Krupp and EADS (PSE:PEADS).

Digital Tsunami was commissioned to produce a website to showcase an extensive range of sonar products.

The website was centred for maximum effectiveness in all browser resolutions, and innovative accordion navigation integrated to maximise focus and footprint and nascent iFrames used to scroll text.

For dynamic impact, intricate animations of page-specific header images were created in Flash. These ‘drew’ the outlines of the object’s structure, before cross-fading into a photograph. A dramatic Flash animation also appeared on the welcome page. For browser compliance and user accessibility, (as on all Digital Tsunami sites), a Flash detector was integrated into every page, and where Flash was not detected, a static photograph was displayed.

Digital Tsunami also produced product photography, designed, developed and hosted a website for sister company Atlas Hydrographic.
