About the Company

Satellite and drone imagery access is on the rise, and traditional image processing methods are struggling to keep up. We’ve never had more data, and yet it’s never harder than ever to gain meaningful insights. We made our first splash in the gaming industry, when we introduced Microsoft Flight Simulator users to an incredible 3D flight experience and created the largest open world in gaming history. Since then, our pioneering tech has evolved to serve a diverse range of clients globally, from the public to commercial sectors.

Our scalable AI quickly extracts global features, providing real-time, on-demand geospatial insights with impressive speed and accuracy. We are turning months of manual work into mere minutes, and with much better results. Our platform also powers our 3D synthetic solutions, which enable large scale simulations and visualizations. Our applications cover various domains, from intelligence and defense solutions for US and US allies to disaster relief, flight simulation and training, insurances, smart cities, urban planning, and more.

We kicked off in 2020 and have secured $35 million in series A funding from a lineup of top US and European investors, among which Microsoft M12, Point72 Ventures, Maxar, In-Q-Tel, SAFRAN, and ISAI/Capgemini.
