Police departments, first responders, and firefighters are utilizing the Aertos® drones to improve visibility, assess critical situations, and help save lives. Digital Aerolus Aertos drones can be deployed indoors and in confined spaces to gather real-time information, allowing teams to improve mission outcomes and reduce risk to responders and the public.
Many public safety teams already use aerial drones to gather real-time information. A growing number of police officers, first responders, firefighters, and security agencies are recognizing the capabilities of indoor aerial vehicles (UAVs) to improve mission outcomes.
Traditional unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) cannot operate indoors. Digital Aerolus’s Aertos UAVs has been designed to fly stably and predictably in environments where other drones can’t, including underground, near steel and metal, over water, and in the dark, making them ideal drones for public safety use.
Here’s a video of the Aertos 120 flying inside a crime scene:
Secure and American Made
Aertos drones do not rely on offshore hardware, or on companies based in foreign countries. Our drones are American made.
Digital Aerolus design and manufactures our drones in the United States using only secure, segregated control systems independent of communication links or servers located in or controlled by foreign countries.
The current UAV market is dominated by Chinese manufacturers. These manufacturers build hardware that requires GPS and communicates information across servers controlled by the manufacturer. The US Federal Government is concerned that this current generation of Chinese internet-connected drones compromises national security.
On January 29, 2020, the US Department of Interior disallowed all operations of Chinese drones in its fleet due to cybersecurity concerns and its stated mission to protect sensitive information about US infrastructure. This action essentially grounded the entire DOI drone fleet.
Use case: Natural disaster search and rescue
After a tornado strikes, a first responder is sent to a heavily damaged two-story building to search for unconscious or otherwise incapacitated survivors.
The responder deploys an Aertos drone to conduct the initial “lap around” of the building, which establishes that vertical circulation is impeded by blocked staircases. Access to the upper story is via ladder only through blown-out windows.
The responder flies the drone through the windows into damaged classrooms and structural voids and uses its imaging capabilities to quickly locate injured citizens. Using the Aertos UAV prevents duplication of effort and allows the team to make informed decisions quickly.
Digital Aerolus Aertos drones are built and designed using revolutionary industrial science, allowing for stable flight in confined spaces and areas that don’t allow GPS navigation. Our drones’ ability to fly indoors and in confined spaces is a breakthrough, especially for use by police, first responders, firefighters, and defense deployment.
