We believe people are innately imaginative and curious. We create technology that furthers the human experience.
“We live in an ever-changing world. Technologies need to evolve to keep up with these changes. Circle Optics is working to develop the next generation of technology to enable more persistent imaging to identify and respond to situations on the ground as they unfold,”
~ Zakariya Niazi, Circle Optics CEO.
Circle Optics’ optimized camera technology will enhance situational awareness capabilities for aircrafts with its ability to capture adjacent fields-of-view without parallax distortion. By producing perfect images in real-time, these systems will improve aircraft navigation and prevent potential collisions.
In late 2020, Air Force’s Technology Directorate (AFWERX) selected Circle Optics for a special topic STTR (Agility Prime, a non-traditional program seeking to accelerate the commercial market for advanced air mobility vehicles) to build a 360° camera that enables complete situational awareness for eVTOLs. In 2021, Circle Optics completed an SBIR with similar goals for a group within NASA looking to further advance Urban Air Mobility.
Circle Optics will continue to deploy SBIR and STTR funds to fulfill Air Force and NASA customer needs, enhance capabilities, and provide solutions to benefit our warfighters and national security.
Autonomous Technology & Robotics
Circle Optics’ work in aerospace has been adapted to enhance autonomous systems, such as drones. From this, customer discovery has shown the significant benefits our technology provides for the increased autonomy of both terrestrial and aerial uncrewed systems.
Circle Optics’ camera systems will be a vital component to all stages of the autonomous industry as it continues to grow and advance in today’s digital age.
When it comes to an immersive entertainment experience, Circle Optics’ state-of-the-art technology should be top-of-mind.
