This partnership brings together the expertise and capabilities of both organizations to deliver cutting-edge autonomy solutions that will enable customers to operate in the most demanding environments.
The collaboration between AGS and KEF Robotics represents a significant milestone in the pursuit of creating highly-reliable, autonomous unmanned systems for contested and near-peer clandestine environments.
By combining AGS’s industry-leading modular software platform with KEF Robotics’s state-of-the-art, vision-based aerial autonomy solutions, the partnership aims to address critical challenges faced by government customers in areas such as defense, security, disaster response, and infrastructure management.
Under this partnership, KEF Robotics’s autonomy solution, Tailwind™, was integrated into AuterionOS to create the framework that will bring advanced autonomous capabilities to all RAS powered by Auterion.
AuterionOS is the trusted operating system platform for autonomous and robotic systems and provides the interoperable software architecture to support the next-generation of autonomous technology across land, sea, and air.
The Tailwind autonomy application adds to an extensive list of out-of-the-box autonomous solutions accessible by Auterion-powered systems, including applications for flight control, autonomy, payload control, radio communication, and software updates.
By integrating KEF Robotics’s solutions for terrain relative navigation, hazard detection and avoidance, and path planning, the partnership provides the autonomy to execute end-to-end missions in the most demanding environments, including operations in areas of GPS or RF jamming.
Errol Farr, President at Auterion Government Solutions, said; “We are excited to partner with KEF Robotics to accelerate advancements in autonomous systems for government applications.
“This partnership brings together our expertise in modular, interoperable software platforms with KEF Robotics’s cutting-edge autonomous technology, enabling us to provide our customers with highly-capable and reliable unmanned systems.”
Fraser Kitchell, CEO at KEF Robotics, expressed KEF’s excitement at the collaboration as well, adding; “By leveraging AGS’s industry-leading software platform and our advanced autonomous technology, we aim to address critical challenges and unlock new possibilities in government operations.”
