Who We Are

We are a stealth mode drone start-up based in Heidelberg and Boston.
We develop enterprise solutions to industrial inspection processes and tackle pressing environmental problems using the latest AI techniques and profitable R&D cycles.

 

OUR MISSION

We at CompactCopters are driven by the belief that technology can enable a better tomorrow. We are an aerospace drone company developing a versatile solar powered drone platform for enterprise applications. Although our platform has a wide variety of use cases from scientific data collection to search & rescue missions, our entry point and focus is energy infrastructure inspections. Our models show that our platform would reduce the cost of pipeline inspections by up to 40-fold - opening up the doors for not only safer energy infrastructure, but also other long-range drone missions that are currently not possible

 

OUR ADVANTAGE

CompactCopters is on the cutting edge in three key areas, allowing it to be competitive far above its weight class

PRODUCT

Solar power allows for unlimited flight time and enables true autonomy – this is in stark contrast to current drones on the market which still require pilots and have flight times of about an hour

R&D

Our in-house flight controller simulator reduces R&D cost cycles and is currently leased to middle-market companies
It allows us to innovate competitively despite our small size

STRATEGIC

The drone industry follows value based pricing rather than cost based pricing, allowing strong margins which can be reinvested to keep our innovative edge

 

OUR TEAM

Each member of our team provides a unique and complementary skill set essential to realizing our vision of a clean yet effective drone platform
