Grene Robotics partners with Texas-based Technologix Global to deliver Autonomous Enterprise Solutions in the US market

  • The autonomous technology will help enterprises with revenue augmentation and OPEX reduction
  • Eyes for a share in the $ 500Bn US enterprise market

Grene Robotics, an India based technology startup that has done pioneering work in the field of Robotics and Autonomous technology, has partnered with Technologix Global – a Texas-based technology company, to deliver its autonomous enterprise solutions in the US market. 

By joining forces with Technologix Global, customers will benefit from a truly high-end TSP that maintains high standards in enterprise technology solutions. Under this engagement, the two companies agree to work together to deliver Grene Robotics’ autonomous solutions developed on the GreneOS platform for enterprise customers in the US market. The autonomous technology will help organisations with revenue augmentation and OPEX reduction. 

In the pre-covid times, the global enterprise application market size was valued at $238.36 billion (in 2020), while in the post-pandemic world, it is expected to reach $527.40 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2030, thus, providing a huge opportunity landscape. With organisations having to accelerate their digital transformation plans, it has become imperative for them to identify and automate all possible business processes.

Enterprises today are bombarded with an array of applications for different processes, yet all of them at their core are incompatible with each other, resulting in data silos, lengthy workflows and slow decisions based on legacy data, and limited integrations that cannot deliver a zero-touch customer experience. Autonomous enterprise solutions bring in the capability to automate work using artificial intelligence & related technologies thus digitally unifying people, processes, data, systems and machines in real-time.
Speaking on the occasion,Kiran Penumacha, Founder and CEO of Grene Robotics,We have been in discussions with Technologix Global since last year and are happy to see the deal come through. By joining hands with them, we aim to expand our presence in the global market and offer autonomous enterprise solutions to help organisations adopt digital unification and replace mundane and repetitive tasks with innovative work, freeing the people to perform value-based tasks that focus on fostering empathy and decision-making.” He further adds, “At Grene Robotics, we have been helping organisations transcend the 5th industrial revolution of human-machine coexistence through the GreneOS platform and have created success stories with our alpha customers like Vodafone Idea, GVK, and also built India’s first-of-its-kind autonomous drone dome defense system Indrajaal which is already a part of the nation’s mainstream defense narrative today.”


Harish Penumatsa, Founder of Technologix Global, adds, “In the US, autonomous solutions are mostly available in the automobile segment. Very few technology platforms create solutions for enterprises. With Grene Robotics, we have the advantage of offering autonomous and unmanned robotic systems for the enterprise market that will help them augment their revenue streams and reduce their OPEX.” As a leading company in software development, product development and technology consulting services, Technologix Global brings capabilities and resources to market, sell, and support Grene Robotics with their autonomous solutions.


Vamsi Vellanki, Executive Director – Strategic Global Partnerships at Grene Robotics, says, “Our international partnership with Technologix Global will show how companies responding to regulatory overhaul, geopolitical uncertainty, technology disruption, market scaling, and demographic shifts are going to push such partnerships beyond their traditional limits. The idea is to combine and connect expertise to expand the companies’ reach, drive growth, and cope with rising competition. A strong focus on partnerships – rather than purely transactional relationships, traditional mergers and acquisitions, sales or market exits – brings much more expertise and value to the table, no matter how large or small the organization.” He further adds, “The silver lining in having a Self-Sustaining Partnership Ecosystem Model is that the real win is in the customer’s experience. Grene Robotics enables self-reliance and self-sufficiency through assimilation of technology and hardware partnerships that add value not only to the customer but also to everyone part of the Grene Partnership Ecosystem.

Grene Robotics to compete in XPRIZE Rainforest competition

Grene Robotics, an innovation-led technology company that delivers Robots as a Service (RaaS), has been selected from India to compete with global companies and teams in the final round of the XPRIZE Rainforest Competition.

XPRIZE started the Rainforest Competition to improve the understanding of the rainforest ecosystem. The five-year XPRIZE Rainforest Competition is a call-to-action initiative to help save rainforests through the development of transformative, scalable, and affordable technology to autonomously survey and monitor biodiversity in near real-time leading to insights that communicate the health, well-being, and value of standing tropical rainforests while ensuring that competing teams co-design and co-create solutions with indigenous people and local communities as key stakeholders. The idea is also to create a business model that can be a beacon in bringing in the technology in conservation.

The competing teams will leverage the existing and emerging technologies such as robotics, drone, nano drones with sensors, drones designed for sample collection, remote sensing, data analysis, artificial intelligence, DNA sample collection, Genome sequencing, and machine learning to develop new rainforest biodiversity survey tools that will deliver information more quickly, affordably and in unprecedented detail without physical human intrusion into the rainforest.

With over a decade in R&D, Grene Robotics’ Forest Conservation Dome is a fully autonomous solution that provides multi-spectral near real-time reconnaissance and surveillance of the forest. The solution, once deployed, can help fight modern-day threats, including unauthorized deforestation, wild forest fires, human encroachment, trespassing, smuggling, wildlife poaching, mitigate man-animal conflict, and track animal migration.

Ahmed Chamanwala, Executive Director – Forest Conservation, Grene Robotics, in a statement said, “It has become imperative to control the use, exploitation, and management of forests through sustainable planning. That can be resolved by bringing about a change in forest management and conservation practices by integrating technological innovations. Our experience with XPRIZE Rainforest Competition will help us refine our capabilities allowing us to build scalable and affordable technology to autonomously survey and monitor biodiversity in near real-time.”

Grene Robotics entered the competition in association with Fringe Ford(rainforest landscape), Field Projects International(research group), and TRAK-TFRC(biodiversity/ conservation equipment). Grene Robotics, in collaboration with its partners, has started deploying the technology on the ground across Fringe Ford’s landscape collecting data in near real-time. Fringe Ford is one of the largest privately-owned forests in India. The 600-acre property shares its boundaries with the Wayanad Tiger Reserve, Tholpetty Reserve Forest, and Arlam Tiger Reserve, making this entire stretch one of the last remaining bastions of the Malabar rainforests. However, the actual competition will be held only at a rainforest that XPRIZE chooses.

Why is this so important to India?
As the world advances with technology and most sectors are leapfrogging into the future, the forests in India are ignored or are fighting a battle every day to protect and conserve what’s left of our open treasures. Grene Robotics wants to change that by bringing technology into conservation with a range of automated hardware, research partners, and conservation, biodiversity equipment providers.

Grene Robotics Designs and Develops India’s 1st Autonomous Drone Defence Dome system: “Indrajaal”

Grene Robotics has designed and developed India’s first 100% indigenous Unified, Distributed and wide-area Autonomous Drone Defence Dome called Indrajaal. Indrajaal will protect a large area of 1000-2000 sq. km per system against threats such as UAV’s, Incoming Weapons, Loitering Munitions, Low-RCS targets autonomously. 

Grene Robotics has developed extensive AC6ISRT capabilities in the form of Defence OS over an 8 year of R&D journey backed by decades of system development experience for the armed forces.  Grene Robotics advisory board consists of Retired Defence Scientific Advisor, Deputy Chief of Army Staff, BEL Director and Air Force veteran who was instrumental for designing India’s most comprehensive command and control system for the Indian Air Force called IACCS.

Why is this critical?

India must stop adopting reactive measures and embark on responsive and autonomous systems to be prepared for modern warfare. Manual weapons and point based defence systems cannot fight modern warfare driven by AI and Robotics. For the first time in India and many times globally rogue forces have adopted cutting-edge technologies such as UAV’s, Smart Swarms etc. Jammu Air Base on June 27th was attacked by such technologies to drop explosives next to Mi-17 hangar.

PLA is already toying with advanced weaponry in Western Theatre Command (WTC) tasked with military operations against India along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Drones are being used to train the infantry to conduct beyond Visual Line of Sight Targeting. The PLA also developed a high-altitude and high-speed armed drone, the WJ-700, in 2021. In 2020, it introduced armed robots, and in 2021, reconnaissance robots, in its military exercises.

Limitation of current deployments

Point defence Anti-UAV systems will not be able to counter and protect large defence bases, NCR and linear infrastructure like international borders and such sensitive areas against aforementioned threats. A minimum of 300 systems are required to be deployed to protect the entire western border and this is financially not a viable option. On the contrary 6-7 sectorally deployed Indrajaal systems with their seamless connectivity can protect the entire western border.

How does Indrajaal work

Autonomous Defence/Weapon Systems is the 3rd revolution of the warfare and Indrajaal’s design principles are based on delivering such autonomy to the Defence Forces leveraging a combination of 9-10 modern technologies powered by Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity and Robotics that is capable of identifying, assessing, deciding, acting and evolving autonomously in real-time. Whether the threat is single or multiple or a combination of UAVs, Low-RCS, Loitering munitions and such, Indrajaal is capable of countering all such threats. 

  1. Real-time situational awareness 
  2. Distributed, Decentralised and Mobile
  3. Integrated and Intelligent meshed network 
  4. Ability to integrate with all current weapons suite and infrastructure
  5. Honeycombed cell structure seamlessly built over a combination of 9-10 technologies 
  6. 24x7x365 persistent and autonomous monitoring, tracking and action

Wg Cdr MVN Sai (Retd), CEO Defence, Grene Robotics said, “I urge the defence leadership to take an integrated and comprehensive approach against all the UAVs, loiter ammunition swarm drones and low RCS threats with indigenously developed Autonomous Defence Systems.   Conventional defences will be overwhelmed in a swarm attack scenario and an AI Enabled Autonomous Dome with its own ecosystem of sensors and processing is the way forward. The process of establishing a fully functional system is an evolutionary process and needs technology vision and user involvement.” 

Earlier this year Grene Robotics announced their partnership with (BEL) to jointly develop first-of-its-kind Autonomous air defence technology, bringing India on par with the best autonomous defence systems of the world.

Grene Robotics and BEL partner to bolster India’s autonomous air defence capability

Hyderabad-based Grene Robotics on Friday signed an MoU with Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), a Navratna Defence PSU, to jointly develop an Autonomous MANPAD Data Link (ADML) system, a first-of-its-kind air defence solution that brings isolated MANPAD (man-portable air-defense system) operators into a networked environment.

The MoU, which was signed at the Aero India 2021, aims at bolstering the country’s autonomous air defence capability. This technological collaboration will reduce asymmetries in controlled warfare and will be first deployed on MANPADS, which are short-range weapon systems.

Deploying the system in MANPADS will enable a command centre to give real time firing commands to Armed personnel by taking into consideration technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality. On the ground, when deployed, the system has the capability to reduce fratricide and is capable of handling all types of weather.

Rajasekhar MV, director (R&D), BEL, said, “AMDL is a state-of-the-art data link system, which exploits AI to provide a comprehensive air-defence solution. We are happy to be partnering with Grene Robotics, which is a niche company working in the core areas of AI and robotics.”

Gopi Krishna Reddy, director, Grene Robotics, said AMDL was a step forward in air defence technology. He said it was to be developed with the combined capabilities of BEL and Grene and was the first of many last mile C5I Systems in the air defence space.
