Instigate’s Latest Success

Instigate Robotics  launched production of unmanned aerial vehicles within Yerevan’s free economic zone, having already mastered the production technology two drone models: training and aerial photography (Educotper, Photocopter). The company specializes in assembling, programming, maintaining of unmanned devices, as well as developing of control units and complex solutions for robotics and industrial automation.

Instigate Robotics designs and control systems for industrial automation, based on L-1 adaptive control theory. Naira Hovakimyan, a partner in Instigate Robotics, is an interesting woman, and most definitely an exemplary one. From May 27-30, 2014, she will be presenting at the 2014 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Naira holds a Ph.D. in Physics and Mathematics, a professor and scholar in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Schaller faculty scholar of Mechanical Science and Engineering with apt interest in anything from the theory of robust adaptive control and estimation to mechanical, electrical and biomedical engineering. Naira has helped bring the L-1 control systems, used by NASA and Boeing, to Armenia. reports company plans for the creation of 15-25 jobs with an average monthly salary of 5-600,000 AMD. That is far above the national average, amounting to about 1250-1500 USD, enough to ensure a rather comfortable lifestyle. Salaries of this range are emerging within the country at the moment, a moot point I expect will become the core reason in diminishing the alarming emigration rates currently the latest trend in Armenia. With more locals able to earn a steady income that places them somewhere in the middle class, I expect our wonderful country will soon reach a point, from whence it will blossom beautifully.
