Persistent flight

Limosaero's drone is capable of extreme flight time and distance. The aircraft flies at low to medium altitudes, for multiple days and weighs less than 20 kg. Designed to be quickly deployed and to operate in challenging weather.

Existing low-altitude electric drones have limited range and endurance. High-altitude solar-powered drones operate above the clouds, and are operationally complex. Satellites are expensive, their imagery can be obscured by clouds, and they cannot be tasked on-demand. Limosaero's drone provides capabilities addressing these market limitations.

Markets and operation

Limosaero's principle market is earth observation. Uses include wildfire detection, rare-earth exploration, gas monitoring, atmospheric sampling and environmental surveys.

As the drone flies below the clouds, Limosaero's offering includes advanced mission planning and uncertainty management software. The software ensures simple, safe, and reliable operation of multiple platforms, flying multi-day missions.
