Energy and Drone & Robotics Summit – Wed 6/12 thru Thurs 6/13
The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center (Booth 314)
Digital Aerolus, the leader in inspection drones for GPS-denied environments, demonstrates the latest innovations of its Aertos™ UAV products at the Energy and Drone & Robotics Summit in The Woodlands, Texas, on June 12-13. 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.
Energy facilities are complex mixes of developing technologies and infrastructure, and organizations across the industry are using UAVs to provide the information and data teams need to maintain energy facilities and optimize their operation.
Digital Aerolus drones complete missions in areas dense with interfering signals and in locations where other drone cannot communicate with GPS satellites. Rugged designs and the ability to navigate stably and predictably in GPS-denied environments make Aertos™ drones indispensable tools for teams tasked with missions like collecting photometric data in hard-to-reach places.
Aertos™ drones serve energy industries in applications like these:
- Inspecting hydroelectric plants and towers
- Assessing indoor facilities for steam leaks and pipe breaks
- Surveying dams, causeways, and spillways
- Maintaining stacks and chimneys
In these applications and more, Aertos™ drones deliver valuable information, predictable flights, and cost savings.
DA’s unique Folded Geometry flight Code (FGC™) and our Mind of Motion Framework™ promise to revolutionize how vehicles from UAVs to submarines, cars, and planes understand and navigate complicated environments without satellite signals.
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.
Some Digital Aerolus team members attended the AUVSI Xponential 2018 show in Denver. Drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, and growing relationships and friendships were the order of the week.

At the AUVSI show, we saw an overwhelming response to our family of drones that fly in GPS-denied environments. We presented a new line of products tailored for the Public Safety and Warehousing market sectors – products that extend the design innovations of our flagship Aertos 120™ inspection drone.
For example, we announced an open-bladed design that incorporates the company’s FGC™ flight code software for stable flight in GPS-compromised areas. Open-blade designs may be a good choice for flying in areas where the risk of collision with obstacles is low, and this approach can allow for larger propellers and extended per-battery flight times.
Thanks to our customers and new friends for your continuing interest in Digital Aerolus. Exciting times are certainly ahead as the market and the array of applications for UAV technology grows. See you at the next trade show!
A rugged, sturdy drone design makes it easy to fly safely around equipment and other obstructions.
What happens when your drone contacts obstacles? Digiutal Aerolus drones are constructed of rugged carbon fiber to withstand harsh environments and to fly challenging missions both indoors and out – even in GPS-compromised areas.
