why this matters
There is tremendous potential for autonomous vehicles and robotics to completely transform many of the world's industries that current host 100,000s of dull, dirty, or dangerous jobs (transportation, oil & gas, utilities, agriculture, etc). Developing perception and navigation software solves one of the most crucial problems in this field, kickstarting a revolution.
Iris Automation is a safety avionics technology company pioneering Detect-and-Avoid systems and aviation policy services that enable customers to build scalable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations for commercial drones; operations that unlock the potential of countless industries.Iris' cutting edge Detect-and-Avoid software solution uses machine learning and computer vision to continually fine tune its capabilities on a low size, weight, and power hardware module that integrates easily onboard small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), allowing them to fly safely at long distances and without human intervention.

We work closely with civil aviation authorities around the world as they implement regulatory frameworks ensuring BVLOS is conducted safely. Iris is a key partner on multiple FAA UAS Integration Pilot Programs and participates in NASA's Unmanned Traffic Management program and Transport Canada's BVLOS Technology Demonstration Program.
