GENIUS NY teams Circle Optics
(’21) and Archangel Imaging
(’22) have announced a partnership combining Circle Optics innovative 360-degree imaging with Archangel Imaging’s unique data science and software.
Archangel Imaging CEO, Dan Sola says, “we’re fundamentally a software and data science company and both our static ground AI cameras and mobile AI co-pilots rely on the visual sensors we integrate; Circle Optics capabilities opens up potential enhancements on the ground and in the air for wide angle cameras of very high resolution in a compact package.”
Circle Optics CEO, Zakariya Niazi, states, ”Archangel Imaging is already deploying novel software solutions that are enhancing autonomous surveillance of critical infrastructure, enabling navigation in GPS denied environments, and building intelligence into machines for state-of-the-art human / machine teaming. Circle Optics provides panoramic camera technology with the best data product around. Our data output combined with their advanced analytics will be a game-changer for the UAS industry.”

About Circle Optics: Founded in 2017, Circle Optics has developed patented technology enabling the ability to capture the entire world in a stitch-less, instant 360-degree imaging. 360-degree imaging is part of everyday life. Circle Optics technology is being designed to accelerate the delivery of life saving resources, ensure aerospace safety, enhance remote sensing capabilities for protection, and increase immersive experience participation. Different from other cameras on the market which work by combining overlapping fields of view in the software, our technology works by aligning fields of view in hardware to produce a perfect panoramic image. No distortion. One click and done.
About Archangel Imaging: Archangel Imaging deploys smart machines alongside people to protect valuable assets and at-risk staff in remote or challenging places. Remote operations are difficult. Whether you are operating drone patrols over marine reserves or monitoring static energy infrastructure, your ability to succeed depends on the supporting infrastructure used to coordinate any response. Today’s machines are still mostly tools, not teammates. Archangel Imaging technology can be retrofitted to other machines to make them smarter and more resilient in a changing environment, independent from any infrastructure. Argonaut™ AI cameras watch for poachers in Africa, oil thieves in South America or potential suicides on European railways. Xnaut™ AI co-pilots enable any drone to independently navigate and complete missions without communications or GPS signals.
