Daedalean is a Zurich-based startup developing software for autonomous flight control, vision-based navigation, terrain guidance and landing. It was founded in 2016 by a team of engineers who worked at companies like Google and SpaceX. As of October 2019, its team includes 30 software engineers, as well as avionics specialists and pilots. Daedalean works with eVTOL companies and aerospace manufacturers to specify, build, test and certify a fully autonomous sensor and autopilot system that can reliably and completely replace the human pilot. It has developed systems demonstrating crucial capabilities on a path to certification for airworthiness. Currently the company is working with EASA on an Innovation Partnership Contract to develop concepts of design assurance for neural networks.
