Astria – a drone for robotics, not just video

Astria is a drone optimized for up-close and touch-based tasks. It is designed for installations, maintenance, and inspections on powerlines, bridges, dams, wind turbines and more. It can put a 5-10lb tool, sensor, or installation payload in contact with an infrastructure target. These can easily be swapped on an interchangeable payload arm. It uses a cyclorotor for precision lateral control and specialized sensors to keep it in exactly the same place in the sky.

What Makes This Product The Coolest Thing Made In Idaho?

Astria is the only drone in the world that can put a heavy payload up-close or in-contact with a target. It can reduce risk in the most dangerous jobs in the US: climbing towers, powerlines, and other infrastructure for inspections, installations, and maintenance.

Here are some cool features about Astria:
Cyclorotor: Quickly changes the amount and direction of thrust for precise control. Today cyclorotors are used on tugboats to help precisely position ships in harbors.
Interchangeable Payloads: Different sensors, tools, or even robotic arms can be easily swapped on the front of Astria to match the mission. The payloads are mounted on an arm away from the center of the drone to interact with the inspection or maintenance target and keep it away from the rotors.
Positioning sensors: Artificial intelligence-enabled cameras help the aircraft navigate safely and avoid obstacles without needing to rely on GPS.
First-person view (FPV): Astria is operated with FPV goggles (similar to VR goggles) that allow the operator to see what Astria sees and fly precisely next to a target even when they are on the ground far away.
Swappable battery: 20 minutes of eco-friendly flight time with a full payload. Future battery options will enable even longer flight times.
Collapsible: Easily assembled or disassembled in minutes for airline and car travel.
