Our original Aertos UAVs delivered many firsts: a unique ground-breaking FGF® flight framework that reacts to environmental factors and self-corrects the vehicle during flight; ultra-rugged construction designed for confined space operations without external sensors or GPS reference; and the first industrial UAV truly capable of replacing a human during dangerous or costly in-field inspections. Building squarely on that success, the all-new Aertos 130IR now takes flight.

With the latest AI technology wrapped in a rugged frame that meets the challenge of real-world confined spaces, it’s a serious tool ready to tackle the harshest places and toughest jobs. No other UAV matches the130IR’s combination of stability, autonomy, advanced technology, omnidirectional sensors, and mapping and tracking capabilities — all designed and built in America.

DIGITAL AEROLUS engineers and scientists spent years perfecting the 130IR's unique features and technology. This revolutionary industrial inspection tool represents another milestone in our history of creating transformative technologies with far-reaching impacts in a variety of Industries and inspection jobs.


AERTOS 130IR autonomous RPAS

For industrial inspections and tight, tight spaces, in the most difficult and hidden


The AERTOS 130IR is an industrial drone made to operate in the toughest places and jobs. The 130IR flies stably in tight spaces and places where no other drone could survive without crashing.

All AERTOS commercial drones fly in difficult situations every day, and the AERTOS 130IR is no exception. Its cutting-edge technology and its resistant body make its flight withstand all kinds of situations and collisions, which make it the ideal option to operate in dangerous environments. We designed the AERTOS 130IR for difficult and dangerous real-world applications: to start and fly stably under bridges, interior pipelines, in power plants, mines, chimneys and any aggressive environment.

It is a tool, not a toy.

Advanced AI navigation software


Each AERTOS drone has our Folded Geometry Framework (Digital Aerolus FGF® patent). This unique artificial intelligence system allows the drone to self-correct during flight, providing unmatched stability in tight spaces and non-GPS environments. The FGF® navigation code intelligently merges information from all internal and external sensors regardless of signal quality. If some external sensor fails, you normally have to wait for other drones to become ineffective and even stop operating, but the AERTOS 130IR remains stable and performs its operation without any problem.

We don’t map to fly; we fly to map.

Nine advanced external sensing elements work together to further improve stability, measure distances, track the environment, and create maps suitable for architectural and engineering applications. The FGF® integrates these state-of-the-art sensors in real time to take indoor and outdoor stability to a whole new level. When added to the inherent flight stability of the AERTOS 130IR, the data from these tracking and mapping capabilities provide incredible utility to customers doing real work in tight spaces, such as sewer pipes or mine shafts.

Image Capture

The Sony optical camera in the AERTOS 130IR uses the state-of-the-art CCD to achieve a wide dynamic range ISO and with low-light capabilities, using a low-distortion ZEISS® Tessar lens that delivers images in a large MPEG format. The AERTOS 130IR also carries a FLIR® Boson imager and a high resolution FPV camera to aid in manual flight. The drone's internal Nvidia processing matrix overlays the data from these imagers using on-board video processing, while integrating all other views of the sensing elements, such as tracking, mapping, and a spherical view of the world.

Imagine the view from the cockpit of a fighter pilot …

We designed THE CONTROL UNIT of the AERTOS 130IR for an unlimited future. It's a tough, serious tool designed and built in America by experienced pilots and engineers. The controller's own Nvidia core engine is Linux compatible and achieves advanced imaging and data processing power unprecedented in the industry. A handheld supercomputer, the AERTOS controller features an ergonomic design with more than 130 processing elements and a bright, integrated display. Additional external displays can be added as required.

Flexible platform

The 130IR’s expandable platform makes it easy to integrate OEMs, partner applications, and additional ports to extend hardware. Open source Linux systems on both the vehicle and the ground controller support the development of user-specific applications, as well as coordination and communication with external databases and software.

Secure encryption

The Aertos 130IR includes AES-256 encryption by default. It’s engineered to be flexible and extendable, and to easily accommodate other security options through programmable encryption in both the flying vehicle and ground platform.
