AertosTM drones fly smoothly and hover in one spot even inside a structure, where GPS or other signals can be blocked. Unlike standard drones, the Aerotos120TM uses spaceflight navigation inspired Folded Geometry Flight Code (FGC)TM, inspired by our NASA-based roots to fly and hover even inside tunnels, tanks or buildings, and under bridges, even if GPS and other signals are denied.
AertosTM uses carbon fiber and KevlarTM for their strength-to-weight benefits, incorporating sturdy ducts to protect the blades from touching surfaces, materials and people
AertosTM drones can be safely flown with minimal operating training needed. Instead of the open blades on standard drones, our drones have ducts and software to help prevent both injury and damage to obstacles or obstructions the drone might contact. First-time users can easily and safely launch our drones and catch them in midair.
