Shearwater is pioneering innovative, autonomous technologies to continuously challenge the limits of flight and enable drones to fly efficiently, just like birds. Their Smart Flight software exponentially increases the operating time of drones by flying AI-optimized routes that leverage air currents, such as tail winds and thermals. This reduces the energy during transit flight by 25%, increases loitering flight time by 800%, and enables operators to execute 60% more missions.
