AUTOCYB's Roadside Cybersecurity Service is Under Development


AIRMIKA, INC., is  a Veterans Owned small business located North Carolina with an office in Chapel Hill and Southern Pines and warehouse in Aberdeen. We started in December 2010 as AIRMIKA, Inc., to empower the vehicle owner / motorist by creating consumer protection products and services.

We have two decades of high-level Washington experience working with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the National Academies of Sciences (NAS), The Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Government Accounting Office (GAO) and the U.S. Congress.

Our focus is providing cyber security to electronic-intensive automotive networks and thus offering consumer protection for millions of owners and lessees of passenger cars and light trucks. We hold several U.S. and international patents and have more patents pending.

Our products are assembled, packaged and distributed nationwide from North Carolina. We created the new market category called ONLINE ROADSIDE CYBER SECURITY.

You can transfer your lock to another vehicle.  However, you will need to update the VEHICLE OWNER'S PERMISSION statement, the sun visor decal and the glove compartment place card.
