Creating autonomy solutions

We are in an exciting time as innovators throughout the industrialized world move rapidly to develop the technologies that will move people and goods with autonomous vehicles through the air, land, and sea. Autonodyne focuses on the control of those autonomous vehicles and the tasks they need to perform to be fully autonomous. We want to be in the vanguard of those companies leading in the research and development of those technologies. With a business model that focuses primarily on software solutions that enable dissimilar autonomous vehicles to perform tasks either individually, or as a team, we are poised to take a leadership role in this emerging field. The combination of the right talent, working in an exciting and dynamic environment, allows us to achieve our goals while making it equally rewarding for those people that work at Autonodyne.

Advent of Autonodyne

The founders of Autonodyne have a long history in aviation and in software development. The company began in 2014 as a spinoff from Avidyne Corporation who has been building FAA-certified avionics for human-piloted aircraft for the last 25 years. Using the foundation of Avidyne technology in such areas as navigation systems, autopilots, on-board sensors, and systems management software, Autonodyne has optimized that technology for the highly automated, uncrewed, and autonomous vehicle world. Starting with air-based vehicles, the company has since expanded the technology suite to the land and sea domains.

Autonodyne was recognized as one of the “largest robotics companies” in the state by the Boston Business Journal in 2020 and 2021.

Our senior staff has decades of experience in the development of advanced software, fielding products, and operating vehicles for these kinds of products. The CEO is a 28-year veteran of flying fighter attack aircraft for the US Air Force, has several degrees in engineering, is a holder of several patents, and has run engineering organizations since the mid-90’s. Our Chairman has founded several very successful software-focused companies. Our Vice President of R&D is also a veteran air force pilot and served as a Professor in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University level. Our Operations and Business Development teams are led by two Air Force veterans who have spent their entire careers in operating and commanding remotely piloted aircraft systems. Our Engineering teams are led by young engineers who are experts in their fields.

We are focused on bringing smart automation, autonomy, and artificial intelligence to bear to enhance capabilities we all think are important and to create new capabilities that were not previously possible. To us, this applies equally across the defense, public safety, and the private/civil markets.
