These slides use concepts from my (Jeff Funk) course entitled Biz Models for Hi-Tech Products to analyze the business model for Airware, a provider of operating systems for drones. Developing applications for drones involves high development costs and these costs can be reduced through the use of a well-designed operating system that is used in many types of drones. Just as Android, iOS, and Windows have reduced the development costs for application software in smart phones and personal computers, Airware’s operating system, or aerial information platform as they call it, can reduce the cost of implementing drones for agriculture, delivery, movie production, security, and the many other applications that have been proposed. Airware is trying to develop an eco-system of drone manufacturers, application developers, sensor manufacturers, and drone operators, each of which contributes towards low cost and high performance applications for drones. These slides describe the value proposition, customers, method of value capture, scope of activities and the method of strategic control for Airware.
