Mesodyne builds generators that fit in the palm of your hand. Mesodyne’s Light-Cell is completely silent, has no moving parts, operates on most commercial and military fuels, and has up to 10X the energy density of lithium ion batteries. Developed at MIT’s Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, incubated at Chain Reaction Innovations at Argonne National Lab, and accelerated by the Air Force Techstars, Mesodyne’s patented technology enables new capabilities for small electric UAVs and other unmanned small systems: increased endurance over batteries alone, improved reliability over internal combustion, ease of refueling over fuel cells, and more.


WiBotic provides wireless charging and power optimization solutions that are integral to charging the rapidly growing ecosystem of aerial, mobile, marine and industrial robots.


Billions of years of evolution – one software mind

Opteran harnesses algorithms evolved in insect brains to make autonomous machines as robust and efficient as nature. We call it ‘Natural Intelligence’.

Natural Intelligence reverse engineers the innate structure and function of actual brains. Solving autonomy in the real world and enabling machines to behave like natural creatures.

Maglev Aero

Maglev Aero is quietly building the future of Urban Air Mobility.


Flexxbotics provides Bluetooth mesh networked embedded systems into Universal Robot work cells to help analyze data and deliver digital workflows to allow any skill level operator the ability to setup/configure robotic work cells. We also provide robot productivity tools that help users deploy/redeploy robots to help increase robot utilization.

Eureka Robotics

Eureka Robotics provides software and systems to automate tasks that require simultaneously High Accuracy and High Agility (HA-HA), across industries, from optics, to electronics, to automotive.

Aura Intelligent Systems

Aura is building an all digital mmWave imaging radar for emerging mobility applications. Aura’s patented software defined radar delivers high-resolution 5D location and imagery for drone detection and tracking, Smart traffic management, and autonomous vehicles.

Southie Autonomy

 Focus: Hardware or Software, Software. While robotics is a highly integrated hardware and software system, Southie focuses on the software side of robots as this is where the bulk of the adoption gaps can be solved. Today’s hardware is highly optimized and robust, but it requires so much NRE to get working. So, Southie aims to reduce the complexity and skill required to deploy and changeover robots, creating a new way to see ROI on robots. A multi-purpose, no-code robotic system that line operators can use and reuse. included every autonomous system you could think of, from underwater robots to aerial drones to joint R&D with MIT and Harvard to advance autonomous mobile manipulation. As engineers we built autonomous systems that would satisfy the user’s mission and the user knew what they wanted the system to do, but there was a disconnect in how the user directed and understood what the system was doing. Basically, there was a fundamental gap that we later learned was an adoption gap between user and robotic system.It turns out that you can use that same exact lens to look at the industrial robotics sector and you’ll find the same exact problem. There is a huge gap between the people who want to use robots (e.g. warehouse workers and operators) and who can actually deploy robotic systems (e.g. automation engineers). So, Southie has created a new way for humans and robots to talk to other (i.e. at the task level instead of instructions). The result is we’ve bridged the gap by letting operations users task robots at the operational level, instead of at the engineering level.


Andromeda is a robotics startup seeking to develop a fleet of universal humanoid robots. Andromeda Robotics’ first prototype, Abi, is a companion robot who aims to alleviate
feelings of loneliness from elderly residents in aged-care facilities through social interactions and hugs! Andromeda predicts humanoid robotics have the potential to improve quality of
life for vast numbers of people.

Inovo Robotics

We created Inovo Robotics to make capable, versatile, robotics accessible to all. We address the problems growing businesses have in automating repetitive, hazardous, or precise tasks. We believe there is a better way and want to free your staff from the monotony of repetitive tasks so you can focus them on more valuable and rewarding work. We also believe in putting you in control by providing intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces, so that configuring our robots for your specific task, is as easy as possible.


The new space race fueled by commercial enterprise is focused on creating lasting infrastructure for expansion rather than pure exploration. Humans are too fragile to build in outer space. Robots will perform these tasks much better, but we need them to be autonomous, not remote-controlled. We need them to perform a wide variety of tasks in unpredictable environments, so they need to be versatile and collaborate (each other. ANT61 is building the brains for the robots of the future.
