What Drives Us.
Our vision is to enhance your world in motion. Our mission is to pioneer advanced autonomy and intelligence systems through unrelenting curiosity, proven experience, and exhaustive dedication to mission success.
Award-winning NIST scientists formed Robotic Research with forward-movement in mind. Nearly 20 years later, that vision has transformed government and commercial autonomous operations.
Our customers face unique challenges. Those challenges need custom solutions. Robotic Research is known for creating custom solutions that require minimal infrastructure and support.
At our heart, we’re inventors who are driven to answer the world’s most complex problems. This passion for innovation has led to over 80 penned patents – and counting. We are here to dream, design, and build.
