Exyn has announced a partnership with Easy Aerial enabling Exyn to integrate their autonomy into a robust airframe capable of reaching new heights in not only mining but all business verticals.
Philadelphia, PA and Brooklyn, NY – February 13th, 2023 – Exyn Technologies (https://www.exyn.com), a pioneer in multi-platform robotic autonomy for complex, GPS-denied environments, announced today that they will be partnering with Easy Aerial to launch their new flagship airframe, the ExynAero™ EA6, integrated with ExynAI™ and optimized for Exyn’s diverse use cases.
“In early 2021, we started evaluating US-made airframes for our next generation of aerial robotic platforms,” said Nader Elm, CEO of Exyn Technologies. “We sought to find a product partner that shared our mission and would be an active collaborator in building an ExynAI-specific robot to be used across the industry verticals we address. In our search, we found a compatible airframe in the Easy Aerial Osprey and an incredible team behind it that would jointly propel us forward."
Exyn has been using the DJI M210 as its main airframe for mining and commercial customers. However, with the M210 product transitioning to end of life, Exyn needed to source its new flagship airframe. This airframe needed to continue to meet our commercial customer demands, and be US-made to comply with US government customer requirements. Beyond sourcing a new airframe manufacturer, Exyn was searching for a new partner with a product that would be capable of evolving with them.
After an extensive evaluation of different airframe manufacturers, Easy Aerial was selected as the preferred partner. By stepping into a new, customized platform Exyn has greater flexibility on future adaptations of the product based on customer feedback. Exyn also benefits from the option to expand its offerings to include EA's drone-in-a-box solution, automated charging, and remote operations to further automate their autonomous robot.
Easy Aerial and Exyn, both agile and dynamic startups, were able to quickly and nimbly adjust to customer feature requests, supply chain constraints, new sensors, and specialized configurations. In addition, Easy Aerial and Exyn are ISO-9001 certified and Easy Aerial is AS9100 certified, which will help facilitate quality production of the ExynAero EA6.
“Exyn and Easy Aerial share a common vision of automating monitoring solutions," said Ido Gur, CEO of Easy Aerial. “Many of our customers share the same operational needs of autonomous drone-based robotics to operate in the most demanding environments, so this partnership was a no-brainer. We’re ecstatic to be working alongside Exyn, supporting our enterprise and government customer base.”
The Osprey platform is beneficial to Exyn in its business verticals like mining and construction, but as a Blue sUAS certified platform by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), it is especially advantageous for Exyn’s work in the government sector. The Osprey is a hexarotor airframe that provides motor redundancy in case of failure. The platform offers longer airborne endurance, while maintaining a slightly smaller form factor than the M210 and accommodates increased thrust capabilities.
Exyn Technologies is pioneering multi-platform robotic autonomy for complex, GPS-denied environments. The company’s full-stack solution enables flexible deployment of single or multi-robots that can intelligently navigate and dynamically adapt to complex environments in real-time. For the first time, industries like mining, logistics, and construction can benefit from a single, integrated solution to capture critical and time-sensitive data in a safer, more affordable, and more efficient way. Exyn is powered by a team of experts in autonomous systems, robotics, and industrial engineering, and is a spin-out of the University of Pennsylvania's world-renowned GRASP Laboratory. The company is VC-backed and privately held, with headquarters in Philadelphia. For more information, please visit www.exyn.com.
