The Company Name is Derived from the Scientific term ‘Soliton’


 A soliton is a solitary wave that is a self-reinforcing and maintains its shape while it propagates at a constant velocity.

Our founder wanted to reflect the “uniqueness” and “multifacetedness” of this Solitary Wave as the basis of its activities and products.  The company name Soliton Systems was chosen as the underlying philosphy of  its approach to “originality” and “impact”.

Soliton's goal is to develop related technologies based on the core requirements that are essential to society.
