Autonomy for small aircraft will have a profound impact on society by ushering in a new, convenient mode of transportation. We develop technologies to make that future a reality.
The next generation of transportation systems will seamlessly blend ground transportation with aerial vehicles. Whether it is to cut through traffic in large urban environments, or take you hundreds of miles away in under an hour, autonomous aviation will dramatically increase human mobility and bring people and places closer than ever before.
The main capabilities of autonomous aircraft are: sense, reason, and control. We develop and integrate technologies for rotorcraft, fixed-wing airplanes, and the new emerging electric vertical and takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for each of these capabilities.Technology
Perception package to precisely know where the vehicle is, and detect or track obstacles and threats - including terrain, other aircraft, birds, buildings, and weather
Autonomy flight management system to plan trajectories, handle the unexpected including failure scenarios, and interface with air traffic control
Integration with autopilot and fly-by-wire to take the vehicle to its destination safely and comfortably
