ZeroMark is set to accelerate the development of its groundbreaking AI-powered auto-aiming system, thanks to a recently secured US$7 million seed funding round investment.

This auto-aiming system transforms standard infantry rifles into highly effective counter-drone solutions, providing a “handheld Iron Dome” accessible to every soldier.

ZeroMark’s cutting-edge technology revolutionizes modern warfare by seamlessly integrating advanced computer vision and precision robotics with conventional firearms. The system is the only solution on the market that physically augments the operator’s aim, enabling them to engage threats with unparalleled speed and accuracy. 

By enhancing the capabilities of standard-issue rifles without impeding their functionality, ZeroMark’s unique approach improves the lethality and precision of armed forces while significantly enhancing operational safety and decision-making efficiency on the ground. 

This innovative technology ensures that the human remains in control while empowering soldiers to effectively combat fast-moving, low-altitude drone threats.

ZeroMark’s technology seamlessly installs on any standard carbine or rifle without tools, and features real-time threat analytics, identification of friend vs foe, and automatic aim augmentation — crucial for maintaining tactical superiority in complex environments.

ZeroMark’s impressive traction is driven by a team of experts and veterans from across the military and technology sectors, including former special operators, leading engineers in computer vision and robotics, and advisors with deep government and security experience.

Joel Anderson, CEO of ZeroMark, said; “The proliferation of drone technology poses an evolving threat to our armed forces. Our mission is to empower every soldier with a cost-effective, highly portable counter-drone solution that delivers unparalleled performance. 

“With the support of our investors, we are ready to deploy this critical capability and ensure our defenders maintain a decisive edge on the battlefield.”

The seed funding was led by prominent venture capital firms Ground Up Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, and will accelerate product development, enhance feature integration, and expand operational capabilities.
