1BitSquared is a small company that designs and manufactures hardware for research, hobby and professional UAV systems. Our team has many years of experience designing electronics and software for Multicopters, Airplanes and Transitioning vehicles. We were founded in 2012 by Piotr Esden-Tempski, longtime UAV and Embedded Systems Engineer with an extensive history developing Open-Source and Open-Hardware Systems. He is one of the core developers of the Paparazzi UAV framework and continues to be an active contributor.
Our mission is to provide high quality, cutting edge, affordable, Open-Source Hardware and Software for the emerging personal nano UAV market. Our systems are designed for advanced hobbyists, as well as University and civilian research programs. Our hardware has applications in autonomous robotics research, FPV (First Person View), precision agriculture, drone journalism, environmental, meteorological and maritime monitoring & research, search and rescue, UAV competitions and innovative airborne platforms. Our aim is to make our hardware smaller and lighter than the rest of the hardware on the market. In the flying world everything is about weight and efficiency. If the autopilot is smaller and more efficient you can fly longer and carry more payload.
