The Team Behind the Platform

Commercial drones enable rapid and repeatable collection of data from the physical world. This helps enterprises meet compliance requirements, make quicker, better decisions and keep workers safe. In 2011, we identified a significant gap in the drone technology market. Military technology was too inflexible and expensive, and hobbyist products weren’t safe or reliable enough for commercial use. We saw that the industry needed a comprehensive platform that could address the growing number of commercial applications.

We created the industry’s most comprehensive operating system for commercial drones, the Aerial Information Platform, built by a cross-disciplinary team of experts in aerospace, robotics, geospatial, hardware, software, and cloud services.

Today, Airware offers complete enterprise drone solutions that are built on the Aerial Information Platform, so that aerial data becomes an extension of a business’ existing data management systems. Airware’s comprehensive set of technology enables enterprises to plan, capture, and analyze aerial data, all within an enterprise workflow.
