Auterion Enables Impossible Aerospace to Launch New US-1 Drone for First Responder Agencies

Quadcopter with market-leading flight time powered by Auterion’s trusted software to support aerial imaging needs of law enforcement agencies and first responders.

Auterion, the provider of Auterion Enterprise PX4, an open-source-based, enterprise operating system for drones, and Impossible Aerospace, a Silicon Valley-based drone manufacturer on a mission to assemble the highest performance electric aircraft, today announced their partnership and collaboration to bring to market one of America’s most sought after UAVs.

“During critical public safety incidents, real-time intelligence from an UAV is extremely important.
This is why the 2-hour flight time of the US-1 is a clear necessity.” said Spencer Gore, CEO of Impossible Aerospace, “We turned to Auterion for software because their operating system is
auditable and trusted for government applications.” “Public safety organizations can now field a drone with government solicited, cyber-secure and trusted software that enables the drone to stream real-time footage to a command center.” said Kevin Sartori, Co-Founder of Auterion. “Choosing Auterion and its open source, open standards approach will greatly simplify the integration of the US-1 into the IT-infrastructure of public safety organizations.”

Thousands of professional drone pilots and businesses around the world count on the open-source flight control software: PX4, which was created by Auterion Co-founder, Lorenz Meier, in 2011 and has evolved into a global developer community. Similar to Red Hat, Auterion builds the open-source infrastructure so that drone manufacturers can go to market much faster with new products flying trusted software.

Today, the US-1 is the quadcopter with the longest flight time on the market, and it made it’s public safety debut this past February with a California-based police force. The US-1 gives police
agencies a new category of assets that sit between lower-end drones and police helicopters. This enables a wider usage of aerial imagery and reduces cost for first responders at the same time.
Auterion will showcase the Impossible US-1 at their booth (#2009) at AUVSI Xponential, the largest unmanned systems conference, held in Chicago from April 30th to May 2nd.
