Digital Aerolus® is an autonomous technology company with 18 patents (granted and in-process) covering our inventions. We develop autonomous technology for anything that flies, floats, drives, or swims. Our American manufactured technology is different from most of the autonomous tech currently in the marketplace. Digital Aerolus’ first commercial product is a line of industrial inspection drones for indoor, inaccessible, and confined spaces – the Aertos® drone.

Digital Aerolus has developed an indoor drone with UVC light technology that can be used to disinfect and combat COVID-19.

Digital Aerolus developed the Aertos 120-UVC to disinfect spaces that are high risk for exposure to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). This video shows a recent UVC disinfection at a daycare, BUGS Early Learning Center in Olathe, Kansas. 

Our Technology

Digital Aerolus developed a framework using Artificial Intelligence with the math used in deep space navigation. Currently, our proprietary technologies are put to use to design and build the only actual indoor industrial UAV in the market.

What We Do

  • The Digital Aerolus family of Aertos drones use the elements of our proprietary technology and AI features
  • None of our drones require external sensors and GPS for stable flight — a big difference from any other commercial drone
  • Aertos drones fly into inaccessible, indoor and confined spaces
  • Our commercial drones fly stably into places no other drones can: power plants, under bridges, confined spaces, tunnels, culverts, inside houses, underground mines, inside buildings
  • Aertos drones quickly inspect areas with lots of metal or high EMI

Our CEO and Co-Founder, Jeff Alholm

Jeff Alholm is a six-time CEO with a successful track record of accomplishment in the technology industry and startups. Jeff’s ventures have raised hundreds of millions in investment dollars and created many billions in exit valuations. His technology teams have developed dozens of patented inventions.

Jeff co-founded Digital Aerolus, and currently serves as the company’s CEO. Jeff led the development of many technology products and their underlying IP/patents, including:

  • Millimeter-wave scanner – whole-body imaging systems used in airport security, military, medical, and surveillance applications
  • Smartphone - the first smartphone; based on Apple’s Newton platform, CTIA’s Product of the Year for 1996
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 – the underlying MAC technology and chipsets for the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard
  • Pulse Oximeter – technology for devices that measure and monitor blood oxygen levels
  • Capnograph – instruments that monitor the concentration or partial pressure of CO2 in respiratory gases. Physicians use capnography to assess patient ventilation during anesthesia; capnographs are required in all U.S. medical operating suites

Aertos® Drones

Our drones don’t need external help in the form of GPS, a compass heading, or optical flow. Our drones are built for rugged commercial use, across multiple industries.

Flying in Confined Spaces

The Aertos family of drones fly in confined spaces and inaccessible areas where other drones can’t fly stably. This video shows the Aertos 120 drone, flying under and around a bridge, inspecting the bridge up close.
