Press Announcement :: Next Week’s AUVSI Expo in Chicago

Press Announcement :: Next Week’s AUVSI Expo in Chicago

The DA team is in final prep mode this weekend  –  so we can embark to Chicago for next week’s  AUVSI Xponential Expo trade show at McCormick Place Convention Hall.

We’ll be demonstrating new features and capabilities of the Aertos 120™ inspection drone, and hopefully converging with many of our colleagues and potential customers in the UAV industry who are clamoring to learn more about the our unique indoor drone navigation technology. So, watch this space for regular reports from the team, and for photos of our booth space and indoor Fly Zone net.

It’s 2019 – and it promises to be an eventful year for Digital Aerolus! Thanks to our latest News blog readers for your interest in our technology. Drop by and see us in Booth 2803!

AUVSI Xponential 2019 – Tue 4/30 thru Thurs 5/2
Booth 2803 – McCormick Place in Chicago

Digital Aerolus, the leader in inspection drones for GPS-denied environments, will demonstrate the latest innovations of its Aertos™ AUV products at the AUVSI Xponential Expo. The industry-awakening capability of Aertos™ drones to navigate stably and predictably indoors and out – without GPS satellite signals, ultrasound, LIDAR, or optical flow – appeals to a broad spectrum of customers including sectors in energy, mining, public safety, transportation and more.

Aertos™ drones deploy protected blades, Bernoulli ducted fan designs, and the company’s proprietary Folded Geometry flight Code™. Jeff Alholm, President and CEO, notes that “many applications for drones include a requirement to fly missions under bridges, around or inside buildings, underground, and in other spaces where GPS signals are weak or non-existent. Our customers want rugged inspection drones that navigate stably and predictably. Delivering this capability is opening significant doors for Digital Aerolus across a variety of industries.”

The company’s Mind of Motion Framework™ and other Digital Aerolus technologies promise to revolutionize how vehicles from UAVs to submarines, cars, and planes understand and navigate complicated environments without satellite signals.

DA Team Set To Invade AUVSI – 4/30 thru 5/2

Look for the Digital Aerolus team at Booth 2803 at the world-renowned AUVSI Xponential 2019 – from Monday 4/29 thru Thursday 5/2 at McCormick Place in Chicago. We’ll be on hand to show the world the latest design features and newest iterations of flight code that have even further enhanced the stability and flyability of our Aertos™ industrial drones.

Since we introduced the Aertos drones and their industry-awakening capability to navigate stably in the absence of GPS satellite signals without deploying ultrasound, LIDAR, or optical flow, our customers across the industries we serve have taken notice. Aertos™ UAVs from Digital Aerolus are now serving organizations in industrial inspection, mining, public safety, and other important industries.

Rugged Aertos drones deploy protected blades, a Bernoulli ducted fan design and our proprietary Folded Geometry flight Code™ – technology we believe will revolutionize how vehicles from drones to subs, cars, and planes navigate complicated environments. These and other Digital Aerolus innovations equip Aertos™ drones to complete flight missions indoors and in challenging environments that defeat other drones that can only fly stably when GPS signals are present.

Drop by Booth 2803 and say Hello. See you there!!

 


Aertos Drone Explores a Flooded Construction Storage Site

Aertos Drone Explores a Flooded Construction Storage Site

When recent Great Midwest Bomb Cyclone invaded in early March 2019, the DA team what most of the rest of you did: we hunkered down in the record snows and barometric lows, and designed some autonomous behavior algorithms for our next generation of drones. We emerged a few days later without much of a compelling weather story.

But, the Missouri River wasn’t so lucky.

Here’s the river’s weather story: after the blizzard stopped howling and the sun came out and began to melt the snow, water started to soak the land, and the resulting overflow then inundated lower Iowa and upper Missouri. The river flooded to historic levels, and vast areas of northern Missouri were under water: towns; bridges and highways; homes. Thousands of people had to abandon their cars or evacuate their homes and businesses.

The DA field team decided to pack up an Aertos 120 drone so we could take a look. We drove to St. Joseph, MO, to fly over a flooded construction site. Later, we flew missions near the flooded Casino and inspected causeways, bridges, and riverbanks from the air.

In this video near St. Joseph, MO, pilot Jenna Squires flies the Aertos drone on a high-risk mission over the Missouri River and through a construction storage trailer near Interstate 29.

Rugged Aertos drones deploy protected blades and a Bernoulli ducted fan design and our proprietary Folded Geometry flight Code – technology we believe will revolutionize how vehicles from drones to subs, cars, and planes navigate complicated environments. These and other Digital Aerolus innovations equip Aertos drones to complete flight missions indoors and in dangerous environments that defeat other drones that can only fly when GPS signals are present.
