Rebranding Emphasizes New Focus on Brain over Brawn

Palladyne AI is Commercializing Advanced AI Software that Enables Robots to Observe, Learn, Reason and Act Like Humans

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 18, 2024-- Sarcos Technology and Robotics Corporation (“Sarcos”) (NASDAQ: STRC and STRCW) is pleased to announce that effective today, the company has changed its name to Palladyne AI Corp. (Palladyne AI). Effective April 8, 2024, the Company’s ticker symbol will change from NASDAQ: STRC to NASDAQ: PDYN. The new name reflects the company's narrowed focus on commercializing the artificial intelligence and machine learning software that it has been developing since 2020.

"As Palladyne AI, we are excited to embark on this new chapter in our company's history. This rebranding is not just a change in name but a reflection of our commitment to delivering a fundamentally superior type of intelligence for both mobile and stationary robots by enabling robots to observe, learn, reason and act in a manner akin to humans, which enhances robot versatility, substantially shortens robot training time and materially reduces power required for AI processing,” said Ben Wolff, President and CEO.

The name Sarcos has been synonomous with innovation and excellence in dexterous robotics for more than thirty years. With innovations ranging from award winning humanoid robots and powered exoskeletons to animatronic robotics at theme parks, Sarcos’ DNA in robotics runs deep. Palladyne AI will continue to leverage this rich history of innovation and global recognition for the Sarcos name by continuing to brand its defense business as Sarcos Defense. We appreciate the continued support of our customers, employees, and partners throughout this rebranding process. We are confident that this change will further strengthen our position in the market and enable us to better serve the evolving needs of our stakeholders.

About Palladyne AI Corp.

Palladyne AI Corp. (NASDAQ: PDYN) is a software company focused on autonomy for robotic systems. Its advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning software seeks to revolutionize the capabilities of robots, enabling them to observe, learn, reason, and act in a manner akin to human intelligence. Our AI and ML software platform empowers robots to perceive variations or changes in the real-world environment, enabling them to autonomously maneuver and manipulate objects accurately in response.

The Palladyne AI software solution dramatically reduces the significant effort required to program and deploy robots enabling industrial robots and collaborative robots (cobots) to quickly achieve autonomous capabilities even in dynamic and or complex environments. Designed to achieve precise results with minimal training time, limited data sets, and lower power requirements, compared to current state-of-the-art solutions, Palladyne AI believes its software has wide application, including in industries such as automotive, aviation, construction, defense, general manufacturing, infrastructure inspection, logistics and warehousing. Its applicability extends beyond traditional robotics to include Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs), and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). Palladyne AI’s approach is expected to elevate the return on investment associated with a diverse range of machines that are fixed, fly, float, or roll.

By enabling autonomy, reducing programming complexity, and enhancing efficiency, we are paving the way for a future where machines can excel in tasks that were once considered beyond their reach.
