AI pilots will revolutionize battlefields and commercial aviation at a scale greater than the self-driving movement reshaping our highways. We’re building Hivemind, our AI pilot, to enable swarms of drones and aircraft to operate autonomously without GPS, communications, or a pilot. Our mission is to protect service members and civilians with intelligent systems.

More than just preset behaviors & waypoints. Like a human pilot, Hivemind reads and reacts to the battlefield, and does not require GPS, waypoints, or prior knowledge to make decisions. It is the first and only fully autonomous AI pilot deployed in combat since 2018. From indoor building clearance with quadcopters to integrated air defense breach with fixed-wing drones and F-16 dogfights, Hivemind™ learns and autonomously executes missions.

A new generation of aircraft flown by Hivemind to provide persistent aerial dominance across the sea, air, and land, on the tactical edge. From today’s F-16s to Next Generation Air Dominance and beyond, jet aircraft are rapidly evolving by leveraging Hivemind. Combat tested and deployed since 2018, V-BAT flies in a class of its own. It’s the most tactical, most logistically simple VTOL aircraft in the world, capable of executing group 2 to group 5 mission sets. It is the UAS of choice for the US and allied forces. Built for the future fight. Nova 2 has proven its value in close-quarters combat with the most demanding customers in the world – on the most high-profile missions. Hivemind gives Nova 2 full autonomy - no GPS, no comms, no pilot needed.
