  • Series follows a group of expert explorers in a remote area in Oregon
  • Experts use the latest advanced technologies to narrow their search
  • Team records some of the most credible video evidence in Bigfoot history

How Drones Helped Search for Bigfoot

Digital Aerolus drones caught the attention of Railsplitter Pictures, a New York-based production company because the Aertos drones have a unique ability to fly underground without the use of GPS.  Executive Producer  Pete Ritchie says he chose the drones because of the radical innovation of Digital Aerolus drone technology:

“In order to tell our story, our team had to face dangerous, treacherous locations regularly. Important pieces of that story would not have been told if not for the technology of Digital Aerolus drones. They allowed us to investigate places the team could not have safely explored on their own.  As a TV producer, I’ve been working with drones since they first became commercially available. I’ve never seen one do what these drones can do.”

Scientists on TV

 Digital Aerolus CEO Jeff Alholm thought he was punk’d when he got the call from Railsplitter Pictures:

“We’re a team of engineers and scientists. I thought the guys were messing with me when I got the Expedition Bigfoot call. It’s a fascinating show and a great use case for our technology. We’re pleased to have been a part of it!”
