Who We Are:

Drones are being used for a growing number of commercial applications including infrastructure inspection, vaccine delivery and even wildlife conservation.

Airware enables customers to tailor drones toward any commercial application by acting as the glue that facilitates seamless connectivity between airframes, actuators, sensors, payloads, and application-specific software.

Our customers are using our technology in amazing ways! In France, drone manufacturer Delta Drone is flying its multi-rotors for infrastructure inspection, precision agriculture and open-air mining operations. In Kenya, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is utilizing flying-wing vehicles for wildlife conservation. We’re also partnering with researchers at MIT who have a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant to deliver vaccines to remote areas of Africa.
