Founded in 2016, Aveopt’s focus was the integration of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) 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 tailored solutions depending on the customer’s specific requirements.
At the time, the market for drone-deployed services was expected to grow to $60-70 billion by 2025. Aveopt needed a better understanding of the viability and assumptions used to support these projections. The FAA and NASA determined the proliferation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) required the control function of Unmanned Aerial System Traffic Management (UTM) systems, emphasizing safety and operational effectiveness as the critical drivers. The FAA and NASA also determined the operational effectiveness of UASs would be dependent upon the utility of three (3) communication infrastructure modes (Wireless, SATCOM, and Remote Sensing). We recognized the performance of these modes acting individually was deficient relative to achieving a state of assured connectivity, giving rise to the Communication Infrastructure Mesh (CIM™) concept.
Aveopt recognized the need for assured connectivity extends beyond the aerial sector to autonomous vehicle operation, rural/remote broadband communications and other uses and applications benefiting by a multi-use communication “backbone” system. The embodiment of Aveopt’s collective work is our CIM™ solution.
Aveopt has several patents pending associated with our work since its inception.
