UAVs Designed on Spacecraft Principles
Digital Aerolus is a self-driving technology company that holds multiple self-driving patents. Right now we are using our technology to create the most advanced UAVs for indoor industrial and confined spaces. We invented systems to fly where other UAVs can’t.
All Digital Aerolus UAVs were designed based on the principles of navigating and flying in space. Competing industrial commercial drones require GPS and sensors in order to fly stably. Digital Aerolus drones were designed to navigate the airspace like spacecraft.
Spacecraft don’t use GPS to fly stably and neither do we. See our Technology FAQ for more about how our UAS is completely different, and why our design developed the most advanced drone on the planet.

Aertos 120™ navigates a tricky obstacle course
Piloted from a distance using long-range telemetry and camera point-of-view, the Aertos 120™ easily navigates a simulated disaster area inside a metal structure. Folded Geometry (FGC™) flight code helps the vehicle to fly safely and stably without reference to GPS or other positioning signals, and the gimbal-mounted camera offers the pilot a broad perspective of the aircraft’s environment. Emergency responders in challenging conditions can safely deploy the Aertos 120™ to explore target areas, and control the UAV from the safety of a remote location.

Aertos 120™ images a coal ash boiler
The Aertos™ 120 explored a decommissioned coal ash boiler in a Midwest power plant to inspect the vents & burners, look for concrete spalling, and collect visual data. The drone flew stably a tight vertical space without GPS or LIDAR, thanks to its rugged airframe, Folded Geometry (FGC™) flight Code, and innovative ducted fan protected-blade design. The VIRB camera payload with user-controllable gimbal and switchable illuminator delivered close high-resolution imagery of the target. Flight date: Jan. 9, 2019.

“Why Math Matters”
Rethinking Drone Flight Stability
In this whitepaper article, Digital Aerolus discusses the importance of math in the context of our proprietary Folded Geometry Code (FGC™). Digital Aerolus UAVs integrate code with the same advanced FGC™ mathematics used in space navigation as key components of our aircraft flight control and operating system.
