Our Company

ArgosAI develops innovative technologies to automate ground operations at airports. ArgosAI’s portfolio of computer vision and artificial intelligence-based technologies enable airports to accelerate their digital transformation as they manage one of the world’s most complex and safety-critical operations.

Today, many of the airport operations are done manually and rely on multiple levels of interpersonal communication among ground personnel, commonly using handheld radios in challenging and noisy environments. However, this model leads to delays, inefficiencies, and safety incidents for the aviation industry while causing numerous inconveniences, productivity losses, and anxiety for air travelers.

Moreover, the aviation industry has enjoyed sustained growth –at least doubling in size approximately every 10-15 years– since its early days and this trend is predicted to continue in the mid-to-long-term despite potential speed bumps due to seasonal economic cycles or natural events like the current COVID-19 pandemic in short-term. This sustained growth has led airports to fast approach their capacity limits and face increasing cost pressures, leaving airport operators and airlines no choice but to adapt solutions that can increase their capacity and agility while decreasing operational costs, uncertainties, and unpredicted downtimes.

ArgosAI’s mission is to eliminate FOD related damages and incidents through use of AI on runway, taxiway and aprons. We will automate ground operations at airports using advanced AI and computer vision for safer, efficient and more predictable future in air travel.

Our Story

ArgosAI was established in 2015 in order to automate all manual processes, especially the FOD requirement in the airside region, with state-of-the-art.

ArgosAI has continuously expanded its influence network and power in aviation in the world since 2015, with the vision of the founders who have worked at the core side of aviation for many years at the engineering level and continued their academic studies on artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Our Vision

ArgosAI aims to lead transformation by providing a sensing infrastructure to continuously monitor operating conditions and an integrated computer vision and AI based technology platform that automatically interprets this data to optimize airside ground operations.

It’s electro-optical sensing and advanced AI capabilities are architected to be scalable, flexible and capable of providing the ability for real-time monitoring and optimization of most ground operations ranging from inspections and tracking of assets to dynamic scheduling of complex tasks at airports.
