Precision Autonomy uses software and algorithms to create a dynamic, value-driven insurance experience for an increasingly automated world. We are focused on practical solutions for commercial drones and general aviation today, with a vision of building commercial global technology solutions for real time, dynamic pricing of risk based for air, water, and land robots.
Precision Autonomy launched in Australia – where early drone regulation dates back to 2002.
In 2019, we entered into partnerships with HDI Global Specialty SE – Australia, and Old Republic Aerospace to launch drone insurance in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
In 2020, insurer HDI Global Specialty SE announced the launch of Aviation IQ, a new platform developed in collaboration with Precision Autonomy, to deliver end-to-end digital automation of general aviation policies for Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Our founders, each have 25+ years of insurance and capital markets experience from startups to leading multinationals, including diverse backgrounds in technology, finance, distribution, marketing, human-centred design, and risk management.
