Unmanned Life: Wrap Up of 2023

<strong>Unmanned Life: Wrap Up of 2023</strong>


Thank you for being a part of Unmanned Life's journey throughout 2023! As we reflect on the past year, we're excited to share the incredible milestones and achievements that have shaped our company's trajectory.

At Unmanned Life, we are committed to eliminating system fragmentation across industries. Our mission is to build a trusted platform that unifies and empowers robotics, making operations safer, more efficient, and autonomous.

Key Achievements and Milestones

In 2023, Unmanned Life experienced remarkable growth and success. Here are some of the key achievements and milestones we reached:

  • New Interface Launch: This year, we launched our new and improved interface, featuring a fresher look and feel. Packed with new and robust features, it will allow operators to safely use the platform in commercial settings.
  • U-Security Launch: We proudly introduced our first product, U-Security—a cutting-edge drone-in-a-box security solution designed for robust autonomous surveillance missions. After a successful product launch in the Barcelona lab, U-Security is already making waves in the industry.
  • Pioneering Multi-Robotics Mission: Unmanned Life achieved a significant milestone by successfully conducting a pioneering multi-robotic autonomous mission. By combining the forces of a heterogenous robotic arm, Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR), and drone, we demonstrated the power of the platform in creating autonomous teams, regardless of the robotic vendor.
  • Open Gateway initiative: We were selected by Telefonica to join the Open Gateway Early Adopter program, in collaboration with AWS, to trial Telefonica´s mobile QoD API.

Success Stories and Partnerships

In such a complex environment, there is real strength in partnerships and we´re proud to working with many of the top players in the industry, including Telefonica, TELUS, AWS, Microsoft, Liberty Global and Cisco. . Here are some of the highlights of 2023:

  • Transforming Port Security at Antwerp: Unmanned Life deployed U-Security at the port of Antwerp – Europe's second largest port. Collaborating with industry giants AWS and Liberty Global (Telenet), we proved security measures by launching autonomous drone-swarm missions. Leveraging AWS' Snowball Edge for intrusion detection AI , and a 5G sliced network, , we showed how the combination of drones, cellular networks, and edge compute can provide a powerful combination for protection of large facilities.
  • Life-Saving Operations in Ecuador: U-Security marked a significant impact in Ecuador by serving as a comprehensive solution for search and rescue operations. Our drones are actively being used to seamlessly respond to emergency situations, whilst operating over a cellular network. This deployment showcased the versatility and reliability of U-Security in critical situations, ensuring rapid responses and aiding in life-saving missions across challenging terrains.
  • Enabling Utilities Security in Europe: Partnering with a major utilities company in Europe, Unmanned Life introduced U-Security equipped with a dedicated autonomous docking station for an end-to-end, commercial deployment. Operating over a secure, private network, our solution has revolutionised security measures in the industrial environment. This collaboration underscores the adaptability of our technology in safeguarding critical infrastructure, providing unparalleled surveillance and threat detection capabilities.

These stories showcase Unmanned Life’s technological strength and its real-world impact across various sectors with U-Security. By enhancing security across ports, critical infrastructure facilities, and more, as well as aiding critical search and rescue missions, our solutions set new standards for robust, autonomous drone solutions, ensuring global partners and clients operate safer and more efficiently.

Events Engagement and Industry Involvement

Throughout 2023, Unmanned Life actively participated in key industry events, maintaining a strong presence within the autonomous technology landscape. Highlights included our engagement at prominent events like Mobile World Congress 2023 (MWC23) and Hannover Messe. These platforms allowed us to showcase our latest innovations, engage in insightful discussions, and connect with industry leaders and peers. We became official members of GSMA this year and have begun playing an active role in several of the industry working groups.

These events weren't just opportunities to exhibit our products but also avenues to contribute expertise through speeches, panels, and live demos. Beyond these major events, we targeted niche conferences tailored to specific industries, ensuring our solutions met the unique challenges across sectors like logistics, security, and utilities.


In 2023, Unmanned Life's dedication to innovation earned us significant accolades within the industry. We were honoured to receive prestigious acknowledgements, including being selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor, being named among top edge computing and AI companies by STL Partner, recognised as a key player in mobile robotics by IMIR, secured positions as a global top startup at 4YFN, and became a finalist in the Startup World Cup. These acknowledgements underscore our unwavering commitment to innovation, fuelling our drive to redefine the boundaries of autonomous technology.

Looking Ahead to 2024

As we step into the future, Unmanned Life is excited about what lies ahead. Here's a glimpse of our goals and plans for 2024:

  • Continuous improvement of U-Security: In 2024, we are dedicated to enhancing the excellence of our U-Security product. Our live commercial projects are helping us to refine user experiences, bolstering functionalities, and optimise performance.
  • Expanding Product Portfolio Innovation: We aim to expand our product portfolio by introducing innovative solutions to address emerging market demands. Our objective for 2024 is to diversify our offerings, exploring new avenues in robotics and autonomous systems.
  • Cultivating Strategic Partnerships and Global Expansion: In the upcoming year, we are determined to keep forging strategic partnerships and expand our presence into new markets globally. We aim to establish collaborations with industry leaders, fostering mutually beneficial relationships that drive innovation.
