History

The beginnings of Aerobits date back to 2015, when a sub-miniature ADS-B implementation (Automatic Dependant Surveillance-Broadcast) was created at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin in conjunction with the multi-GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) function. The OEM module with an area of only <4cm2 and weighing 1.5g, to this day is the smallest ADS-B / GNSS fusion in the world. A year later, slightly larger but much faster systems with FPGA support were created and presented for the first time publicly at the ILA Berlin Air Show 2016. Our solutions were interesting for various institutions and organizations which are responsible for creating the laws for the UAS in the European Union. An additional impulse for further actions was the prestigious award in the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2016. The company’s founding was decided by a breakthrough technical solution that allowed for the extreme miniaturization of ADS-B without any compromises, i.e. while maintaining enormous computing power. The high potential for commercialization of this technology has been appreciated by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education. It was chosen to represent the country during the Hannover Messe 2017 trade show.
