Welcome to www.CourseZero.com!

Course Zero Automation is an MIT startup, founded by Ted Blackman and Josh Siegel in early 2008. Our first product is an inertial navigation unit, based upon the INU demonstrated at the 2008 Soldier Design Competition (sponsored by the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies at MIT). The device won the Boeing Prize. We have used the cash awarded to fund further development and prototyping.

We are in the process of finalizing our design for a low-cost, low-power, small, and easy to use inertial navigation unit. These qualities of our INU will bring the advantages of inertial systems into a wider range of devices, including consumer electronics.
