Our Story

FORT brings together the best technologists who have spent their careers working to solve the most complex and dangerous aspects of robotics. 

The company was founded in 2018 by Samuel Reeves, who spent the previous decade making landmine clearance safer through the use of robotics. During this time Reeves realized that secure communications – considered core infrastructure elsewhere in technology – didn’t exist for robots in fields like construction, agriculture, warehousing or elsewhere. 

FORT was founded to create a first-of-its-kind Robotics Control Platform (RCP) to empower companies with the unique tools needed to ensure robots cause no harm.

We believe the technologies that enable humans and robots to work side by side productively should be built by and built for every kind of human. 


To us, that means creating a sense of genuine belonging regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, physical or mental ability– for every kind of human.

We work hard to be proactively inclusive in the way we hire our employees, lead our teams, design our products, choose our partners, and serve our customers.  Like any good builder, we stay open to new ideas, welcome constructive advice, and are constantly improving on the things we make and the way we treat each other.
