AURA Innovators and Leaders

Innovators and Leaders in Ground-breaking Solutions

A Company Built On Revolutionary Ideas & A Partnership That Works

A collective of Senior Technologists, Scientists, and Business Experts, AURA was created initially to solve challenges for US Government interests. Operating out of The Research Triangle in North Carolina, AURA is known throughout the industry as an innovator in research and a leader in the creation of ground-breaking solutions. A proud partner to the US Military, we are actively helping all Defense branches envision a new future through technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Advanced Manufacturing Environments, and Intelligent Microgrid Technologies.

AURA is led by Douglas and Anna Bennett, who are passionate about harnessing technology in order to make the world a safer and better place. Douglas’s expertise and experience in defense and advanced technology and Anna’s expertise and experience in the commercial and healthcare sector are regularly leveraged for the benefit of all our clients.

Today, the focus of AURA expands past work performed for the defense sector into other areas such as healthcare and consumer products. Our impressive growth since day one, recently recognized by Inc. Magazine, is a testament to the scalability and reach of our capabilities.
