NEST® 250

The patented automated drone in a box system without a pilot.

The Aerial Drone in a Box System

Dronus is revolutionizing the concept of industrial drone with NEST® 250: a patented aerial drone-in- a-box system, the result of three years of research and development by Dronus CEO Marco Ballerini, an aerospace engineer with more than two decades of experience in industrial drones, and his multidisciplinary team of experts.

NEST®250

The fully autonomous AI-powered drone-in-a-box system that conducts inspection and security tasks 24/7 without human intervention.

The innovation

The NEST® base, after which the system is named, is the innovation we bring to the market: an aerial base that acts as the heart and mind of the drone. The NEST® base constantly communicates with the drone, whose take-off and landing phases – which at Dronus we call release and “skying” – as well as battery charging process are autonomously managed with unprecedented precision and reliability.

Simple

NEST® 250 is equipped with a command and control software. It also features a simple and intuitive application (easy installation on any PC, tablet or smartphone) that enables the user to manage and follow the mission data remotely.

NEST® 250: THE COMPONENTS

NEST®

An unobtrusive light aerial base that controls the drone during all phases of flight and battery charging and affords stability to take-off and landing. It can be installed anywhere and functions as the drone’s protective nest and charging station even in extreme weather conditions. It guarantees secure communication with the drone whose data traffic is protected and encrypted. It is equipped with a predictive maintenance software.

NEST® 250: THE COMPONENTS

Drone K250

A small and unobtrusive drone, compliant with EASA < 250 g category requirements. Its low acoustic and visual impact as well as its special mechanical features make it safe to use in critical environments. Geofencing ensures totally safe flights. The K250 autonomously communicates with its NEST® base streaming data or high-definition images in real time thanks to both an optical and an infrared camera for daytime and night operation. The drone calculates its remaining flight time and automatically returns to the nearest available NEST® base to recharge, following a logic of continual learning.

NEST® 250: THE COMPONENTS

Arianna

The geotracking system developed by Dronus. It enables the drone to deploy with utmost precision even when flying through narrow spaces and in areas with low or no GPS signal.

Applications

Industrial Site Inspection

Industrial sites, often located in remote areas, require constant inspection and monitoring to meet efficiency and reliability standards that ensure personnel safety and site security.

Security

Protecting industrial sites, even those located in remote areas, from theft, intrusion and industrial espionage presents a costly challenge that can have an impact on business operations.

Smart City

A Smart City is a city specially designed to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants by providing them with efficient and effective digital infrastructure and services. The development of smart cities will play a key role in the promotion of a sustainable world.
