Auterion Government Solutions Announces Three New Unmanned Systems Technology Products that Work Together in Modern Warfare 

June 27, 2024

New releases make Auterion the first company to provide a cost-effective, all-in-one AI computer and flight controller running AuterionOS for commercial and defense applications, providing the compute for terminal guidance.

ARLINGTON, Va. – June 27, 2024 – Auterion, the company building the software-defined future for mobile robotics and powering the world’s leading drone manufacturers, has announced the release of three new products for modern warfare scenarios. 

Auterion Government Solutions is making Skynode S, the Auterion T&I App, and the Dragon Reference Design kit available to the defense industry to provide an attritable, low-cost UAS to track and destroy targets in battle. Auterion has worked with government and OEM partners in the US, EU, and Ukraine over the last several months to develop this new capability, which has now reached TRL-9 following hundreds of test flights and successful front-line engagements by our Ukrainian partners.

“Our technology is transforming the battlefield to help democracies defend themselves.” said Lorenz Meier, CEO of Auterion. “The Auterion hardware and software platform has been engineered to provide robust support for all enterprise and ISR use cases. With the introduction of these new capabilities, our software now also directly supports onboard apps for unmanned strike systems.”

Below are feature highlights for each product. 

Skynode S

  • Provides an all-in-one autonomous solution that combines a flight controller and mission computer to unlock the full functionality of Auterion’s software platform
  • More capable hardware features the FMUv6x flight management unit from the current Skynode X family and a powerful mission computer with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit for AI and computer vision applications
  • Capable of powering all types of vehicles with up to eight motors/servos, including larger fixed-wing platforms
  • National Defense Authorization Act Compliant

Auterion T&I (Track & Intercept) App

  • A new AuterionOS application that allows minimally trained operators to designate static and moving objects in video, and enter an automatic flight mode that intercepts tracked objects with low CEP, even if link is lost during the terminal phase
  • Brings the capabilities of expensive loitering munitions to attritable systems and overcomes the requirement for manual piloting as the main limitation of traditional FPVs
  • Support for airplanes and multicopters: Auterion T&I has been engineered to work with larger fixed-wing and VTOL systems

Dragon Reference Design Kit

  • The Dragon Reference Design Kit includes a kit with digital radio and cameras for partners to develop a SUAS quadcopter system focused on delivering low-cost, high-volume FPV drone and software
  • Provides the full functionality of AuterionOS and Auterion Mission Control, plus enhanced precision tracking and delivery capabilities from the Auterion T&I App
  • Helps drone manufacturers to be up and running quickly with manufacturing for systems that support up to 2.5 kg payload capacity, with the ability to complete missions up to 25 km away with a 1.5 kg payload
