Digital Aerolus products are the most advanced industrial drones on the planet. We design and build drones to explore indoor, inaccessible, and confined spaces. We create our Aertos™ line of commercial drones using revolutionary systems and by applying technologies and mathematics, similar to those used in deep space navigation.
We developed breakthrough flight software, navigating our drones to fly in confined spaces and areas without GPS (GPS-denied). Our Aertos™ drones use AI technologies not found in other commercial 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 airborne vehicles (drone/UAV/UAS) as well as ground (UGV), water (UWV), and underwater (UUV) vehicles.
We Solve 3 Drone Problems
Drones are inherently unstable. Digital Aerolus makes the only drone that doesn’t rely on external sensors and GPS for stable flight. Our drones don’t need external help in the form of GPS, a compass heading, or optical flow.
The technologies built in our Aertos™ line solves the three biggest drone problems :
Our Drones Fly and Hover Stably Without GPS or External Sensors
- Aertos™ drones fly stably indoors, in confined spaces and in GPS-denied environments
- Aertos™ drones fly next to high walls, thick canopies, culverts and under bridges
Our Drones Are Instantly Deployable
- Our drones can be deployed instantly. No startup time: “When the first minute matters”
- Our pilots launch our drones in the air to operate
Our Drones Use AI
- Our solution connects sensors and flight data to allow integrated AI behaviors
- Aertos™ drones have intelligent behaviors, which allows them to distinguish between the force of wind and a wall
Why Aertos™ Drones?
Digital Aerolus drones stably fly into in places others can’t. The Aertos™ line of drones are designed and built in the U.S. using unparalleled technology by engineers with backgrounds in aviation, AI, avionics and other advanced technologies.
Here are the features that set Digital Aerolus Aertos™ drones apart from the pack.
FGC™ & AI –Digital Aerolus invented and constructed our drones with advanced mathematics, and Artificial Intelligence technologies. We invented our Proprietary Folded Geometry (FGC™) flight code that makes our drones internally referential. Because of our ground breaking technology, our drones fly stably without requiring external GPS.
Drones Built from the Ground Up –While other drones are comprised 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 the unique missions they need to fly into.
Rugged and Robust –The Aertos™ family of drones are robustly fabricated by hand with carbon fiber, 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’ inspections.
Stable Flight Without GPS or External Sensors – Our proprietary FGC™ allows our drones fly reliably in areas where GPS communication is not possible, areas that are GPS-denied. We designed and built the Aertos™ line of drones to achieve stability without external sensors. We reserve the use of external sensors to further enhance our precision and stability—but our drones don’t require these external “cheats” to fly stably. All other commercial drones mandate external sensors, or GPS to ensure flight stability. In some cases, a cage must surround the drone for stable flight.
Ducted Fan Design – Digital Aerolus drones have a ducted fan design, contributing to a safer environment for drone pilots and inspectors. In addition, the ducted fan design increases flight time of the drone. All Aertos drones have our TouchSense™ AI feature. This artificial intelligence capability encourages close inspection. Our proprietary TouchSense™ trait allows the drone to get up close to things during flight without crashing.
