we are redefining modern warfare

It all started in 2018 when Rubi Liani, founder of the Israeli Drone Racing League, translated his passion into meeting the incendiary balloons threat on the Israeli-Gaza border. Meanwhile, Aviv and Matteo Shapira, extended reality specialists and award-winning entrepreneurs who recently sold their technology to Intel, and Adir Tubi, a defense specialist, were looking for the next market disruption.

By bringing together human intelligence and machine autonomy, XTEND provides the best of both worlds to enable complex decision-making and complex flight dynamics. Our state-of-the-art combat-proven systems superpower their operators and enable anyone to experience, interact with and fly in remote environments anywhere and anytime at no physical risk.

our vision

The possibilities for Human-Centric Machine Interface technologies are endless. We set out to realize these possibilities and break the limits of physical reality, so our lives will no longer be limited by our locations or our capabilities – only by our imagination.
