Humanity is leading a new charge out to the stars and the next generation of infrastructure to propel humanity out into space is well under construction. SE4 is about what we do upon arrival, the difficulties of industrializing the vast blackness beyond our Earth cannot be ignored, robots are required and the issue with that is controlling them. ‘JAK’ is a system that enables a user to describe and control the world around them from inside a VR-based simulation. Using JAK, users can annotate a VR depiction of the real world using simple geometric shapes which enables previously impossible robot-object interaction regardless of the limitations of time and space.

Using JAK,  you can pilot any robot from anywhere regardless of the limitations of space and time. JAK is seamless, provides an easy and intuitive user experience. Once you’ve provided instruction on what and how you simply hit go, JAK then sends your intent, and a robot at the other end makes it all become real.

Designed to provide simple but powerful control for remote robotic assets, JAK has an inbuilt scheduling capability meaning that your commands, if appropriate can be farmed out to every capable asset in your system. It is ideal for high latency or low bandwidth operating conditions such as space or underwater. You can see JAK in action totally destroying the previous industry standard of teleoperation below.

We believe that good space companies bring the fruits of their discoveries back to support the Earth, so we are deploying JAK in terrestrial environments where our technology makes sense in fields like construction, mining, resource management, hazardous material handling, subsea survey, asset maintenance, and more. 

We are occasionally looking for hardware partners to deploy JAK onto, if you have a promising application and would like to try out JAK on your robotic assets, we look forward to connecting with you.
