Prioria was founded in March 2003 by business and engineering graduates from the University of Florida. Drawing from expertise in embedded systems and robotics design, Prioria first developed and contributed to embedded systems solutions for companies in a variety of industries segments including medical devices, homeland security and trucking.
Since then, much of Prioria’s work has been on leading-edge systems designed to perform sophisticated surveillance or security tasks. These embedded systems are small self-contained computer systems that add data processing functionality, which allow sensor data to be collected, synthesized and utilized in new and interesting ways.
Products & Services
Maveric®The Maveric is a high-performance, next-generation platform for small UAS operations. Maveric is the first UAS that is single-man portable and operable with immediate launch capability. Maveric’s bendable wings capitalize on advanced composite materials and patented airframe technology, which allow the unparalleled ability to store a fully assembled airframe in a 6-inch-diameter tube. Designed as the first smart UAS, Maveric utilizes an embedded processing platform called Merlin to enable onboard image processing and vision-based control and to generally reduce reliance on ground station communication.
Merlin®Merlin extends the reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition capabilities of current generation small UAS. In addition to being integrated into the Maveric, Merlin is also available as a stand-alone platform that is readily combined with other off-the-shelf UAS autopilots. Merlin adds additional onboard capabilities to the autopilot which include high-resolution image capture, video feed stabilization, target tracking and obstacle detection to allow navigation through cluttered urban environments. As well as being directly applicable to other UAS platforms, Merlin is also relevant to a broad array of markets such as homeland security, automotive, health care and agriculture.
