Paeonian Springs, VA: Over the last half-decade, the low-cost autonomy and remote sensing industries have skyrocketed, paving the way for a new need in the market. This need can be met by Inertial Labs’ ability to produce navigation and remote sensing payload solutions that remain unmatched in their price-to-performance ratio. In 2020, a year marked by many disruptions and unparalleled consequences due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Inertial Labs began to make pivotal and strategic relationships that would allow themselves to align perfectly with one of the most well-known remote sensing solution and service providers in Japan, FLIGHTS Inc.
Similarly to Inertial Labs, FLIGHTS is motivated and compelled to set itself apart and continue establishing itself as the company leading innovation in the drone and robotics markets. With FLIGHTS’ extensive experience with end-users as a service provider in the Japanese market for all services about remote sensing, they are an ideal partner for Inertial Labs. FLIGHTS Inc. offers services and products for commonly needed projects within application bases: infrastructure inspection, land surveying, precision agriculture, and utility management.
This mutually beneficial partnership is an exciting next chapter for both Inertial Labs Inc. and FLIGHTS Inc. Anton Barabashov, Inertial Labs’ Vice President of Business Development, couldn’t be happier with the recent partnership. “Culture in Japan is much different than many countries. They are patient in their decision-making and intentional in relationship-building. Richly leading to rewarding business partnerships and collaborative efforts in research and development. We are most excited to have partners in the world’s most technology-rich nation and work with FLIGHTS Inc. to develop our solutions further to incorporate more autonomous features such as LiDAR-SLAM and optical flow algorithms.“
The excitement of this decision can be seen and heard on both sides of the partnership. Hirosh Kashio, the Executive Director of Engineering from FLIGHTS Inc., is eager to see how successful this joint endeavor will prove. “We are delighted to have found a reliable partner with common ambitions. Inertial Labs is a group of experts in manufacturing and developing inertial systems, and we are very excited about the future of our relationship. With this partnership, FLIGHTS will not only offer its existing services but will also be able to quickly develop solutions needed “now” in a world where digital twins are becoming increasingly familiar to us.“
With 2022 right around the corner, Inertial Labs and FLIGHTS are ready to hit the ground running with collaborations that will bring readily available low-cost solutions for autonomous vehicles and platforms in the remote sensing industry to Japan.
