HAT.tec – Human Autonomy Teaming Technologies – is an innovative software and consulting company focused on mission technologies.
The overall objective of HAT.tec is the development of customer specific software solutions based on state-of-the-art AI technologies enabling users to increase their mission performance dramatically.
The company was founded by former IFS employees Yannick Brand and Fabian Schmitt together with Prof. Axel Schulte in 2018 after identifying a significant gap between state-of-the-art research results and solutions in industry. The headquarter of HAT.tec is located in the south of Munich.
As a spin-off of the well-known Institute of Flight Systems (IFS-FMFF) of the Bundeswehr University Munich we build on extensive experience in the field of Human Autonomy Teaming.
Since its foundation in 2018 HAT.tec has been growing continuously – our team consists of highly experienced and dedicated engineers and computer scientists who are always ready to push the boundaries of technology.
In 2020, HAT.tec became a certified company according to EN9100 and ISO 9001 and we are very proud to have received recertification in 2022.

While AI will fundamentally change the way work is done, technology will  ultimately enhance human capabilities rather than replace them. The benefit of such Human Autonomy Teams is a significant increase in human and mission performance, especially in highly complex environments, by combining the strengths of both partners.
  HAT.tec GmbH is a software development, research and consulting company specialized in Human Autonomy Teaming Technologies. Our core competencies comprise the utilization of state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence technologies such as automated reasoning, planning and decision making to create software solutions that dramatically enhance overall mission and human performance.   Our solutions are human-centered and ensure a high level of operator situational awareness while maintaining a manageable workload for effective collaboration.

Fabian Schmitt

Co-CEO and Co-Founder


is an expert for the (re)planning of multi-vehicle missions, focusing on manned-unmanned teaming applications. He has been working for more than 8 years on mission management system, the integration of human-automation and the design of Human Autonomy Teaming.

Yannick Brand

Co-CEO and Co-Founder


has been working for more than 7 years in the field of civil and military aviation and manned-unmanned teaming. He is an expert in human-automation integration, mission analysis, cockpit assistance systems, system design and simulation.

As a spin-off company, we are very proud to have the Bundeswehr University Munich (UBM) and the Institute of Flight Systems (IFS-FMFF) as our partners.   The IFS develops paradigms for cooperative cooperation between man and machine in aviation. The core of the idea is that humans and automation with their respective strengths are involved in the work process in order to achieve a goal set by man.   We collaborate with the IFS in order to advance the state of the art and master highly topical challenges in the area of Human Autonomy Teaming. Many of our employees have an IFS background.
