Founded in 2016, Aveopt’s focus was the integration of Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies with Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems. Our mission was to develop remote sensing systems supporting the infrastructure and public safety markets. The TerraPosition Pro™ Suite of Products was developed as a result of this effort, integrating Line of Sight (LOS), Surveying and Mapping, and Asset Inspection capabilities to tailor a solution depending on the customer’s specific requirements.
At the time, drone-deployed services for these markets was expected to grow to $60-70 billion by 2025. Aveopt needed to better understand the viability and assumptions used to support these projections. We determined that for these projections to be realized, the proliferation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) required the control function of Unmanned Aerial System Traffic Management (UTM) systems. We also determined that the operational effectiveness of the UASs would be dependent upon the utility of three (3) communication infrastructure modes (Wireless, SATCOM, and Remote Sensing). We recognized that each of these modes acting individually was deficient relative to achieving assured connectivity.
Aveopt has several patents pending associated with its collective work since its inception. The result is Aveopt’s Communication Infrastructure Mesh (CIM™) solution.
We also recognized that the challenges which the CIM™ addressed extended beyond the Aerial sector to include ground vehicles and communication in general including but not limited to Rural Broadband Connectivity... truly a Multi-Use Communication "Backbone".
