Proxy is a software and systems integrator offering Cooperative Flight—a leading edge multi-vehicle mission management software solution. With a highly experienced team of dedicated software engineers, Proxy has developed groundbreaking software with numerous advantages compared to other unmanned systems in the marketplace. Proxy’s solutions offer the U.S. government and the commercial sector advanced autonomous capabilities not available elsewhere.
With Proxy’s autonomous technology, fewer ground personnel are required to accomplish a mission. One operator is able to control up to 12 vehicles simultaneously. The Proteus® is enabled by the Virtual Pilot / Virtual Operator (VP/O) and is continually sharing information to make real time and routine rule-based decisions, freeing up the operator to carry out complex military missions or civilian objectives.
UAVs are the future of aviation. In recent years, the U.S. government has experienced a sharp growth in the use of UAVs, ranging from surveying overseas battlefields to fighting western wildfires. There will continue to be an increase in demand for UAVs, requiring innovative ways of control for military and civilian uses.
Potential uses include the following:
- Homeland Security
- Coastal Surveillance
- Drug Interdiction
- Natural Disasters
- Humanitarian Relief
- Border Patrols
