LEDAS Ltd. is an independent software development company, founded in 1999 in Novosibirsk, Russia on the base of academic lab of artificial intelligence (AI). Using its core competencies in mathematics, computer science, computer-aided design, and a solid expertise in software development, LEDAS provides custom software development services in the areas of CAD, CAM, BIM/AEC, and general 3D modeling for desktop and cloud applications.
Over the years, LEDAS worked on technically advanced geometric engines, such as LEDAS Geometric Solver and a 3D geometric kernel. Today, LEDAS offers a broad range of expertize in computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
The largest and most significant project involved LEDAS cooperating with Dassault Systemes. The work spanned 12 years, developing components for Dassault’s CATIA CAD program and GCM kernel. The project deployed expert programmers and mathematicians at LEDAS in developing a state-of-the-art geometric constraint solver for the world’s largest CAD software company (more in Success Stories).
We at LEDAS see our mission as automating key industrial processes — 3D design, simulation, and planning. These are the areas in which users require sets of intelligent functions to accelerate product development and the planning of related processes and resources. We help our customers develop intelligent applications, and then promote and deploy them.
Our R&D team consists of 50+ highly qualified mathematicians, mechanical engineers, and software programmers. Nearly a dozen have a Ph.D. degree; the others attained MSc and BSc degrees in mathematics, computer science, and mechanical engineering.
LEDAS headquarters are located in Akademgorodok, a world-famous education and scientific research center in Novosibirsk, Western Siberia, the third largest Russian city after Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Created 60 years ago in the ecological heaven of a pine forest 20km south of Novosibirsk on the banks of the Ob river, Akademgorodok became home for 35 research institutes with 5,000 scientists in the Russian Academy of Sciences. It also is home to 50+ IT companies with 1,500 programmers, and 30 other high-tech companies with 1,000 engineers. Many world-leading technological companies have R&D offices in Akademgorodok, including Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, and Yandex.
Novosibirsk State University, one of the top Russian universities in mathematics and the natural sciences, is with its 6,000 students a unique source of a highly qualified workforce for LEDAS.
LEDAS is situated in Novosibirsk TechnoPark(science and technology park). We are part of a complex that consists of 188,000 sq. m. of labs and offices to establish a stronghold of Russian economic innovations in IT, bioinformatics, and electronics.
