Granta Autonomy Raises 1M in Seed Funding

Granta Autonomy, a Vilnius, Lithuania-based startup specializing in fully autonomous UAVs for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, raised $1M in Seed funding.


The round was led by ScaleWolf VC, with participation from Brolis Defence and HFL holdings.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development and production of its lightweight surveillance and reconnaissance UAVs, micro gimbals, and digital Datalink software, which its team has personally tested over Ukraine’s front lines.

Founded by military engineers Gediminas Guoba and Laurynas Litvinas, Granta Autonomy has been developing reconnaissance remote-controlled UAV aircraft, lightweight gimbals, and its Datalink software since 2015. The company now provides NATO forces across Europe with its range of hand-launched Hornet UAVs while also providing a range of partners with its proprietary, ultra-reliable, lightweight micro gimbals, which are the lightest direct drive gimbals on the market. Granta Autonomy’s micro gimbals feature a camera system that allows for clear daytime image capture at long distances (up to 5 kilometres) and provides vital thermal vision for nighttime operations, ensuring mission success around the clock.
