Why Aertos 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 made our Aertos line of confined space drones using revolutionary systems and applying technologies and mathematics similar to those used in deep space navigation.
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 an issue for many commercial drones.
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.
Digital Aerolus has developed breakthrough flight software, enabling users to navigate our drones in confined spaces and areas without GPS.
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 Platform & AI
We invented and constructed our industrial drones with advanced mathematics and artificial intelligence technologies. Our proprietary Folded Geometry Platform 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 is 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 turbulent world of our customers’ applications.
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 entirely impossible. Magnetic fields are distorted, like near metal or re-bar concrete.
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
Watch as our Aertos 120 drone indoor performs a confined space inspection in an energy plant. Our drones are designed for stable flight indoors and outdoors, 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.
Confined Space Inspections
Flying stably in confined spaces can be extremely challenging, even impossible for most commercial drones. Digital Aerolus drones inspect and explore indoor, inaccessible, and confined spaces. The video below of a recent inspection shows one of our drones flying within the enclosed area underneath a bridge. Most commercial drones cannot stably fly in and under bridges.
