Confined Space Drones

Digital Aerolus creates the most advanced industrial indoor drones in the marketplace. We design and build UAVs to explore indoor, inaccessible, and confined spaces. We created our Aertos® line of confined space drones using revolutionary systems and by applying technologies and mathematics similar to those used in space navigation.

Why Aertos Indoor Drones?

Our drones stably fly into areas others can’t. The Aertos line of drones is designed and built in the U.S. using unparalleled technology by engineers with backgrounds in aviation, AI, avionics, and other advanced technologies. Our drones fly into inaccessible and confined areas. Digital Aerolus drones have no issues flying over water or near metal — which is a massive issue for many commercial drones. 

Digital Aerolus has developed breakthrough flight software, enabling users to navigate our drones in confined spaces and areas without GPS. 

Groundbreaking Drone Technology

Our Aertos inspection drones use AI technologies not found in other industrial drones.

That’s because Digital Aerolus is more than a drone company; we’re an autonomous technology company with many patents covering our inventions.

The proprietary technology used for Digital Aerolus drones can power a wide range of vehicles. Our company designs and develops autonomous technology for any vehicle that flies, drives, dives, or swims.

Aertos Drone Features

Folded Geometry Flight Code & AI

We invented and constructed our industrial drones with advanced mathematics and artificial intelligence technologies. Our proprietary Folded Geometry (FGC™) flight code makes our drones internally referential. Because of our ground-breaking technology, our drones fly stably without requiring external GPS.

Rugged and Robust

The Aertos family of drones are robustly fabricated by hand with carbon fiber, allowing them to safely and efficiently inspect some of the most dangerous places on earth. Our platform, including our FGC™ software, is designed for collision and the rough world of our customers’ applications.

TouchandGo™ Technology

All Aertos drones utilize our proprietary TouchandGo™ technology, which allows the drone to perform up-close inspections without crashing.

Stable Flight Without GPS or External Sensors

Our proprietary FGC™ allows our drones to fly reliably in areas where GPS is not available. We designed and built the Aertos UAV to operate stably in areas where GPS reception is not useful or is entirely impossible, and where magnetic fields are distorted, like near metal or re-bar concrete. 

We use external sensors to enhance our precision and stability further—but our drones don’t require these external references to fly stably. Most traditional commercial drones mandate the use of external sensors to ensure flight stability.

Ducted Fan Design

Digital Aerolus drones feature a ducted fan design, contributing to a safer environment for drone pilots and inspectors. The ducted fan design also increases the flight time of the drone.

Watch the Aertos Drone in Action

Watch as our Aertos 120 drone indoor performs a confined space inspection in an energy plant. Our drones are designed for stable flight indoor and outdoor, even in GPS-challenged areas. Predictable flights indoors and out — even if the UAV strikes an object.

Aertos drones have completed successful missions where conventional drones cannot fly, including in proximity to steel, metal, concrete, rock, and other materials that have historically prevented UAVs from operating.

Aertos Family of Drones

Drones built from the ground up

While other drones are composed mainly of off-the-shelf components and software, our Digital Aerolus team designed and built our Aertos 120, Aertos 121, and Aertos 300 drones from the ground up for their unique missions.
