Full onboard and payload package offer

CB creates a generic package with integrated AI capability, which can be further customised for each particular mission. This allows CB to develop its missions significantly faster, easier, with reduced risk and at lower cost. As a result, CB notices a considerable increase in revenue, gained through access to a larger market.

Custom components for re-sale with FSDK licences

Through existing mission work CB develops a number of custom software components for the FSDK, that it can then re-sell as an add-on to clients who have the expertise to build their own flight software package using the FSDK. This allows CB to create additional revenue streams through both licence resell and custom add-on sale.
