ASTRIA

An aerial platform for up-close and robotic tasks.

 

ASTRIA MOVES DIFFERENTLY

 

CYCLOROTOR

Instant thrust vectoring for precision control.

Pitch Aero's patented cyclorotor makes Astria precise. It can create thrust (push) Astria forward, backwards, or sideways so that Astria doesn't need to lean. It can vary this near-instantaneously to account for wind variations.

PAYLOAD FORWARD

Unrestricted access to the job site.

Astria's 5-10lb payload is positioned at the end of a sensor arm. This keeps the sensor or tool away from the rotors and allows it to interact with the inspection or maintenance target. This arm can be quickly swapped to provide the right tool or sensor for the job at hand.

 

COLLAPSIBLE

Any job site is accessible.

Astria is ready to reach the most remote job sites. Every component collapses down to fit inside hard cases to check on the airlines or put in the back of a vehicle. Astria can be assembled or disassembled in minutes without any special tools.

POSITIONING SENSORS

Avoid obstacles and use them to navigate.

Time of flight sensors mounted in every direction, paired with optical flow cameras allow Astria to see the world around it. These sensors provide obstacle avoidance and allow Astria to hold positioning even if GPS satellites are obstructed or jammed.

 

FIRST PERSON VIEW

Precisely positioning from far away

An onboard camera, paired with virtual reality goggles allows you to fly Astria as if you were in the cockpit. This allows the pilot to precisely position a sensor or tool up-close or in contact with an inspection target; even on part of an inspection target that isn't visible from the ground. The goggles overlay key flight and inspection information over the video for rapid decision-making.

SWAPABLE BATTERY

Add another 20 minutes of flying in a few seconds.

Astria's  battery can provide 20 minutes of flight time with a full payload. It can be swapped out in seconds enabling all-day operations. In the future, we will provide a tethered solution for even longer endurance applications.
