Full time

Software Development / Backend

Python Developer

Kyiv, Ukraine

About the project:

The position opened to a client-partner company that specializes in advanced navigational systems for UAV operations. They focus on developing robust solutions that enhance autonomy and reliability, facilitating operations in environments where traditional GPS may fail.

The client is developing a satellite image processing algorithm for reliable operation in GPS-unstable environments and a navigational algorithm for autonomous return and holding in GPS-denied areas. To establish the location, the first algorithm correlates real-time optical data from UAV-mounted cameras with pre-existing satellite imagery. The second algorithm captures frequent images to create a detailed visual path, enabling UAVs to retrace their flight or maintain precise positions autonomously.

Technologies are designed to be integrated across various platforms, delivering precision, resilience, and cost-effective enhancements to existing hardware.
