The Team Behind The Tech

Agile builds intelligent ESCs. This solution offers significant increases in flight time compared to traditional ESCs, performs real-time monitoring of the vehicle’s propulsion system, and acts as a black box flight recorder.

Agile’s employees in the St. John’s office call 5 different countries home. Education ranges from Bachelors to PhDs, in Commerce, Mathematics, and Mechatronics. Work experience around the office varies from growing start-ups, to working in multi-national corporations. One common focus across the group is fulfilling the company mission – to focus on continuously innovating technology that enables the evolution of robotics.
