About Us

Moonware is a venture-backed startup enabling next generation air travel with automated and sustainable airfields. We’re building an integrated ecosystem of AI software and smart vehicles that efficiently connect ground crew, aircraft, and ground support equipment to efficiently service flights. 

Our long-term vision is to handle aircraft autonomously from touchdown to takeoff, providing seamless aircraft turnarounds for a streamlined airport experience.

Moonware was founded with the belief that multimodal air transportation will become the prime mover of people and goods during the 21st century. From eVTOLs that will ferry passengers between cities and suburban areas, to supersonic aircraft shaving travel time between continents, we are ushering in a new air and space age that will further globalize humanity.

Airports and the hubs uniting these modes of transport will need to evolve to meet this new modern demand for air travel. In spite of the current advancements in aircraft technology, the infrastructure and ground processes that will enable these new aerial ecosystems to happen are largely outdated.

We are builders hailing from Tesla, Waymo, NASA, Google, Uber and Corvette, leveraging years of product development experience in aerospace, automotive, and robotics to revolutionize the airfields of tomorrow.
