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.
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.
