Who We Are

We are CyPhy Works. CyPhy (pronounced Sci-Fi) is an amalgam of cyber and physical. Works means our products work for you, get work done, and simply work better. In short, we make cyber physical systems that solve problems that don’t yet have solutions.

While we love technology, our work begins and ends with people. That understanding is the reason CyPhy exists: to build a team whose sole focus is creating aerial robots that empower people to tackle the problems of tomorrow.
