THE FUTURE IN SIGHT

Safer drones with collision avoidance
Be an Early Adopter

INDUSTRY WIDE SETBACKS

PILOT ERROR

Drone pilots are skilled aviators but even they struggle to see and avoid obstacles and aircraft when operating drones at extended range.

OPERATIONAL RISK

No pilot on board means low situational awareness. This risk is huge and the potential conflicts can be extremely dangerous.

LICENSE DIFFICULTY

Not being able to show adequate mitigation of operational risk means regulators are forced to limit drone uses and applications to closed environments.

GET IRIS ON BOARD

Iris Automation has developed an AI computer vision system capable of giving unmanned aerial systems the ability to avoid collisions with other aircraft, making the airspace safer for everyone. To fly beyond-visual-line-of-sight in the future, companies must carry sense and avoid technology as outlined by regulatory bodies around the world. Companies with Iris on board get the benefit of being a member of our early adopter program to advance their entry into the beyond-visual-line-of-sight market.
