A new approach

We saw a need for a different kind of technology and a novel approach to guarantee the trust of the U.S. Government in Unmanned Aerial Systems. That is why we founded Auterion GS.

How we work

Speed paired with discipline


Auterion GS is a different kind of Government contractor. We bring the technology and velocity of a commercial technology company together with the process discipline of a lead system integrator.

Open approach


We believe in a collaborative open source approach to foster transparency in the industry, drive short product cycles, and enable interoperability between systems.
