Reasons to Invest

Patent protected drones made in the USA, designed to save lives in areas where GPS navigation is inaccessible
Five successful field deployments with the Department of Homeland Security focused on search & rescue in the last two years
Featured in the news and listed among the "Top Ten Regional Companies on the 2019 Greater Washington i-list", an award for the most innovative companies in the region

   "Whether delivering medical supplies, conducting search and rescue, or protecting our borders, Airgility provides the best-in-class aerial systems."

The Problem


Most drones today are limited by computational capacity and require... humans

Robots have the capability to save lives either by removing people from danger or preventing people being sent into dangerous situations. But artificial intelligence is under-used due to limited computational power. Robots that require cloud connectivity are useless in many natural disaster locations where opposing forces such as weather conditions, thick walls, and tunnels directly interfere with the connection to remotely operate the vehicle.

The Solution


Self-contained robots with autonomous technology to save lives

Airgility builds AI-powered aerial robots for public safety, security & defense, and the commercial sector capable of both outdoor and indoor autonomous, self-directed flight. Powered by Airgility's proprietary operating system, aerial robots can operate independently in complex environments, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to determine what they should do, when they should do it, and how they should complete the task. Airgility is creating drone platforms that do not rely on human control or GPS information. Airgility's unique technology is built upon the fusion of multiple redundant sensors, mapping for obstacle avoidance, and autonomous flight. 

Autonomous and Efficient

Our unique algorithm allows for ultimate efficiency, employing autonomous functionality when necessary for effective prioritization of tasks in emergency situations. Airgility's drones provide information in real-time, improving decision-making in the critical moments of a disaster. 

Modular Design

Our drones are built with modular components, allowing for simple on-site repair in the event of a crash or component failure.

Maximum Maneuverability (VTOL)

We maximize aerodynamic agility through our Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) hybrid. In emergency situations, our drones have the ability to fly fast and far, converting power to get where they are needed quickly and navigate tight spaces once they arrive. 

Our Traction


Preorders from the Department of Homeland Security and picking up speed

After being selected as part of the Department of Homeland Security’s prestigious “Smart Cities Program," Airgility has received preorders from the Department of Homeland Security.  Airgility was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, and we are graduates of the NSF i-corps program. We have one patent issued and two patents pending. 

Airgility was selected as one of 10 startups to participate in the U.S. Air Force Lab with MassChallenge, a 2 year pilot project to accelerate technological development. Our drones have been featured on news stations such as WUSA9, as well as listed among the “top ten regional companies on 2019 Greater Washington i-List”, by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce. 

And some great press!

The Market


The commercial drone industry is taking off

The commercial drone industry has taken off since 2016 when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented regulations for unmanned aircrafts. Unmanned aircraft have the potential to create the greatest business value in the construction, mining, and agriculture industries

What We Do


Changing the way we respond in the face of disaster

Airgility creates efficient, self-contained robots with systems that achieve speed in decision-making using machine learning (ML) on-demand and fast tracking algorithms. Our robots use a proprietary blend of ML and non-ML algorithms to identify, prioritize, and track items, people, and actions of interest so that navigation and mission-specific decisions can be made within the context of the environment. This gives them the ability to perform a multitude of tasks from delivering medical supplies, to conducting search and rescue operations, to protecting our borders.

Airgility is developing a hybrid VTOL platform that offers broad operational impact and logistics. Our DS-1 model can autonomously explore dangerous environments to find signs of life or to search out and track targets of interest. Video, 3D mapping, and sensor fusion are used to navigate indoors and in environments where GPS is intermittent or unavailable.  The DS-1 allows for AI/neural 3D imaging, navigation, and machine reasoning in environments where GPS is unreliable. 

                      *The photos of MS-1 and HS-1 are based on prototypes, actual products are still in development.

Coming Soon: DS-1 drone to help the fight against COVID-19

Airgility has been engaged by ReMUV LLC through an MOU to develop a robotic solution to combat COVID-19 using our DS-1 drone, outfitted with UVC light technology to disinfect indoor and outdoor spaces. Imagine places that can be disinfected chemical-free before big conferences, sporting events, concerts, etc. We expect to launch these drones in late Summer/early Fall 2020.

The Business Model


Versatile products and established relationships

We are in the product launch stage for our first drone, the DS-1 after creating functional prototypes and conducting  multiple testings and demonstrations. Our revenue will come from selling the DS-1 and the software platform for specific use cases such as the first responders/public safety market, inspection (industrial/internal) and insurance.

We plan to sell our DS-1 drones for between $5K and $10K and cost us approximately $1K to build. Our sales are done through direct to business and direct to government. We are exploring subprime relationships with large government contractors and plan to establish reseller/distribution relationships (with some already in place).


The MS-1 and HS-1 are currently under development. The MS- has been supported by $150K in grants to us from the Maryland Industrial Partnership, and the HS-1 has received $300K in grants from the Maryland Industrial Partnerships to support its R&D.

How We Are Different


AI-powered autonomy

Airgility defies the limitations of many drones on the market through its enhanced ability to detect objects, humans, spaces, and the relationships between them. These capabilities allow for wide-reaching applications in a variety of industries, with the potential to surpass the performance of human piloted drones.

Our Team


Taking flight in the artificial intelligence industry

Our team is not only passionate about aviation but also possesses the skills and creativity necessary to be successful entrepreneurs in the AI industry. With decades of experience in sales, marketing, engineering, and business development, we are positioned to bring this cutting edge technology to the market.

Why Invest


Cutting-edge technology and an insatiable drive to impact the world

AI and unmanned technologies hold the potential to save lives and change the way the world responds in the face of disaster. Edge computing/processing is a challenging problem, but one that can truly change how fast information is acquired and used to make the right decisions.


Fortunately, we are a team that is passionate about solving problems and motivated to make an impact. At Airgility, we have both the AI autonomy customized for the mission AND the platform that can make it happen!

COVID-19 fighting drones!

2 months ago

Good Afternoon to our community!

As we go into the weekend, We wanted to share a piece of the many exciting things happening at Airgility!  We have taken to heart what's happening in the world and can't wait till the entire globe is reunited again.  We thought to ourselves, "what can we do with our technology to help, and how can that translate forward for years to come to help keep everyone safe?"

Well, as it turns out, we 3D print our drones and have designed them to be cost effective enough to be able to go into any "hotspot".   We also started to get phone calls about having our drones clean indoor areas.  Given all these value drivers and market validation that our drones offer, we thought, is there a way we can do that?   And can we do it without chemicals?  

Soooo, the Covid fighting UVc drone was born!  If you aren't familiar, UV-C light is able to kill 99.9% of many different things including influenza, MRSA and E. Coli.  UV light emits harmful UV rays that works on surfaces that its light touches.

We then partnered with a company are experts in UV cleaning technology and that produces a very small UV light emitting bulb (smaller than your thumb!) which makes it a great fit for our drone!   We've begun integration and will report back on the testing as soon as we can!    Pictures below:




Thank you and have a great weekend!
