One of the leaders in safety-enhancing aviation technologies, Reliable Robotics honored the opening of a new development and engineering center at Silicon Valley with Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, leading local elected officials, and representatives from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). In addition, Congresswoman Eshoo and California State Senator Josh Becker highlighting innovation in the region, celebrated the expansion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony also included Co-Founders, Juerg Frefel, and Robert Rose.
Reliable Robotics designs advanced autopilot systems with high-precision navigation that improves aviation safety. The system enables all-weather auto-takeoff, auto-taxi, and auto-landing without needing new ground infrastructure. More than 5,000 general aviation airports serve small towns and rural communities across the United States, but only a small percentage of these airports are operated by commercial airlines. These advancements will increase access and allow the delivery of time-critical shipments such as medical supplies.
The team manufactures and internally tests flight computers, high-performance actuators, and other components. This innovation forms the basis of a continuously engaged autopilot, eliminating flight control loss, controlled flight into terrain, improper fuel management, and other leading causes of fatal aviation accidents. The safety-enhancing systems will initially be implemented on the Cessna Caravan, a popular cargo aircraft serving regional airports; however, they can be adapted for use on virtually any aircraft. In addition, reliable Robotics recently received FAA approval for its G-1 issue paper, a critical step toward the commercialization of the technology.
About Reliable Robotics
Founded in 2017, Reliable Robotics is an automated aviation system enabling a safer, more convenient, transformative air transportation future. The company’s headquarters is in Mountain View, California, with a globally distributed workforce. Its flight control system automates all phases of flight, including takeoff, taxi, and landing. Using a certification-forward strategy, Reliable Robotics first demonstrated gate-to-gate fully automated operation of a Part 23 aircraft and is now pursuing commercialization of technologies for Part 23 cargo and Part 25 passenger vehicles. Its new equipment enables remote operations with precision mechanisms, satellite communications and high-performance computing on the ReliableOS platform.
