To use robotics to improve quality of life for all people, plants and animals.
Our prescribed burn planning UAV helps land managers reduce wildfire risk for their communities. Using our innovative adaptive exploration technology our UAVs go beyond following simple instructions and can make smart decisions about how to navigate unstructured environments, bringing autonomous robotics one step forward.
What We Do
Efficient exploration and mapping of cluttered forest environments through our proprietary, generalized decision-making algorithm.
Secure and equitable data management means sharing our ecological data with researchers for better understanding the environment, wildfire, and climate change.
Validation & Verification
Quantified UAV behavior modeling through rigorous testing for safety-critical operations.
