Experienced and knowledgeable

Svarmi was founded in 2013 by two mechanical engineers with a shared interest in flying. Both founders had years of experience designing and building drones and RC model planes before they took the obvious step to start a company around their passion.


Usage of drones has expanded since then, and the focus of the company has shifted from selling custom built drones to data services. Svarmi is now a leading expert in Iceland in remote sensing data for scientific and industrial purposes.
