What

Drives Us

Enabling intelligent systems to operate safely in any environment

We are a group of space ninjas, engineers, GPS nerds, motorcycle racers, and adventurers. Our experience comes from SpaceX, Blue Origin, Booz Allen Hamilton, NASA, Ford Motor Company, and Stanford GPS Lab. We helped put over 50 vehicles in space and have published over 50 scientific papers advancing navigation technology.
