Vertiq, also known as IQ Motion Control, designs and builds high performance propulsion systems for commercial and defense drone platforms.

Vertiq spun out of the University of Pennsylvania’s robotics lab in 2017 and has since grown to be one of the leaders in the drone propulsion market.

Vertiq makes ultra compact, high performance servo motors for drone propulsion. Combining a unique hardware design (integrated motor, controller, and position sensor) and proprietary motor calibration and control software, Vertiq optimizes motor performance and controllability.

As a result, Vertiq’s products significantly increase the effectiveness of commercial and defense drones. The vehicles using Vertiq technology fly 10% longer, maneuver and stabilize 4x faster, experience 75% fewer critical failures, and have access to unique propeller positioning capabilities.

Vertiq's mission is to bring high end motor performance to vital robotic applications, starting with drones and in the future, expanding into ground and marine mobile robotic applications.
