Founded in Evans City, Pennsylvania, USA in 2020, Aeras designs and manufactures drones used to sanitize outdoor stadiums and amphitheaters against COVID-19, and electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) passenger multicopter aircraft for advanced air mobility (AAV). The company also has drones capable of pressure washing, precision agriculture, precision Lidar and mapping, 3D mapping, wildfire mitigation, search and rescue, hyper-spectral imaging, photography, filming and public safety.
Aeras was the first company in the United States certified by the FAA to use drones specifically to sanitize outdoor stadiums against COVID-19. Aeras’ technologies and suite of products have created a new standard in large-scale sanitization. The company uses charged-electrostatic drone technology which uses nanotechnology to shield Lidar, GPS and other electrical systems from electrical charges inside the drone and also from external sources such as power lines and electrical storms.
The Aeras 51 is a one passenger eVTOL full scale multicopter technology demonstrator with a canopy over the cockpit. The aircraft has six propellers on the out edges of the aircraft's canard wings and are powered by six electric motors. Two propellers are on the ends of the front wing and a total of four propellers on the rear wing. The aircraft is made from metal tubing and has tricycle skid-type landing gear.
Safety features: Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), provides safety through redundancy for its passengers and/or cargo. DEP means having multiple propellers (or ducted fans) and motors on the aircraft so if one or more propellers (ducted fans) or motors fail, the other working propellers (or ducted fans) and motors can safely land the aircraft. There are also redundancies in the sub-systems of the aircraft.
