MARS-Robotics My Eye in the sky.

MARSRobotics Vision:

To be customers’ first-choice in providing World-Class UAV services and innovative products while leading Guidance and Control technologies to support UXV OEMs solutions in the region.
MARSRobotics® is divided into two main divisions:

1. MARSRobotics® Engineering with its mission: enables UxV OEMs to rapidly develop, price competitive, differentiated low cost and ITAR free systems solutions and services, while creating and maintaining their own intellectual property.

2. MARSRobotics® Remote Sensing with its mission: empowers our customers in implementing state of the art remote sensing solutions, High Accuracy workflows for construction inspection, surveying, aerial mapping, mining and public safety.

MARS Robotics team focus is to provide innovative autonomous robotic systems solutions for various applications. MARS Robotics is an OEM robotic technology for providing autonomous robotic solutions in the area of hardware, peripherals, networks, software, support, service, and training for various applications such as homeland security, surveillance, search and rescue, etc. Ultimately, we are providing ITAR free technology for control and guidance of robotic autonomous ground and aerial vehicles. MARS Robotics provides reliability, and confidence, and independence, and assurance its customers of continuous support and assures them that their business will not suffer any technology disaster for any unforeseen reason. MARS Robotics serves its clients as a trusted ally, providing them with the loyalty of a business partner and the economics of an outside vendor. We make sure that our clients have what they need to run their business as well as possible, with maximum efficiency and reliability. Since many of our information applications are mission critical, we give our clients the confidence that we will be there when they need us. The size of UXV MARS Robotics is targeting are in the category of mini UAVs or UAVs class 0 which are effective for civil applications and this would allow MARS Robotics to cope with investments driven to the power of size as well as avoiding the restricted trade on the prohibitive military hardware market.

Dr. Mohammad Amin AL-Jarrah, PhD form Stanford University in 1989 in Aeronautics and Astronautics founded MARSRobotics in September 2013. Dr. Al-Jarrah is an unmanned vehicles systems expert with several UAV books and over 80 refereed publications in international journals and conferences. He supervised more than 30 Master Degree Students. He holds three Master degrees: Machine Design, Applied Mechanics, and Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, California USA. He holds PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics form Stanford University too in 1989. Dr. Jarrah developed at NASA AMES the wind tunnel simulation of Dog Fights super maneuvers to high angles of attack funded by the Air Force of Scientific Research under contract no. 84-0099 and partially by NASA Ames Contract NCA2-287. First encounter with UAVs was at NASA AMES research Center in 1988. He worked as a member of the High Angle of Attack Working group on a UAV concept for testing fighter super Maneuvers in 1988 and was invited to NASA Langley research center to present his proposed design. Shortly after returning to Jordan in January of 1989 he started his drive with the armed forces of Jordan to establish an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Program. In 1992 was started his work with the airforce, one day per week, to establish the first in the Arab region UAV program. Dr. Jarrah served as the Director of JUST unmanned air-vehicle project in 1992-1997. He did many projects in the area of unmanned systems and industrial solutions in the area of automation and manufacturing for leading industries in the region: Jordan Armed Forces, Tawazun, Mubadala, Emirates Armed forces Research Center, Jordan Ports Authority, Gulf Aircraft Maintenance company (GAMCO) and many other institutions. Dr. Al- Jarrah is the leading scientist in the area of Autonomous Unmanned Systems in the region and the pioneer of Mechatronics systems education in the region. Dr. Jarrah was able to form an outstanding team of engineers to form the startup MARSRobotics. MARSRobotics team consists of thirteen full time young hardworking engineers working on the development of the advanced autopilot system hardware and software as well as the MARS-EYE project, system hardware-software development and integration, Ground Control Station Software and Hardware, Mission planning and control, etc. In addition MARSRobotics is investing in training limited number of young engineers selected based on performance. The team is supervised by a number of engineering faculty from Jordan university of Science and Technology. These faculty act as consultant and project advisors in the areas of embedded systems development, image processing, and autonomous solutions.
