At Notos Technologies, we use glider drones to power your missions. Unlike traditional multi-rotor drones, gliders have the added ability of being silent and unobtrusive in their environments, and are better suited to take advantage of the natural wind energy in the atmosphere.
What makes our drones unique is their ability to take advantage of the energy created by columns of rising air called thermals.
Our ability to exploit thermals for flight allows our drones to stay aloft at up to ten times the rate of other commercially available drone solutions.
Our drones come equipped with a complete patented system that enables autonomous soaring by generating a dynamic map of thermals in the atmosphere, allowing our drones to use this map for online flight planning and decision making.
This means that our drones are able to complete a set mission, while simultaneously finding ways to extend mission times, ensuring effective and long-term data collection.
