UAS Systems Engineer Intern


What we do:

F-drones is an early stage startup backed by some exciting entities. We are building the world’s first transition drone to enable aerial deliveries to oil rigs and ships. Our unique design will have a combination of heavy payload and long range capabilities that would put other existing delivery drones to shame. We aim to be the leader of heavy payload drone logistics across industries in 5 years.

We are developing world-class computer vision systems for Beyond the Visual Line of Sight Navigation (BVLOS) of drones along with the ability to achieve centimeter-level landing accuracies on moving surfaces. The drones will also be able to avoid obstacles and unsafe landing locations, and be equipped with seamless fusion of GPS, VIO and other sensor-based navigation to provide the best overall mission accuracy.
