The HX1 is an intelligent Group 1 UAS that combines rugged portability, autonomy, and onboard AI to enable rapid deployment and real-time situational awareness.


Folds to store compactly along with two extra batteries, Ground Control Station, and tools. Deploys in under 60 seconds.


State-of-the-art sensor fusion, obstacle avoidance, and the ability to detect and avoid other aircraft for safer autonomous missions, even BVLOS.

Artificial Intelligence

Built-in computer vision and a powerful onboard AI processor that can run up to six Deep Neural Networks at once.

When the mission matters most, nothing else compares.

Our team has been hard at work creating a new drone for public safety and disaster response. We're taking a no-compromise approach based on the simple idea that public safety drones must work when called upon, no matter the circumstances. So when cellular infrastructure is destroyed by hurricane winds and 5G networks are unreliable, the mission can go on. When lives are on the line and you don't have several minutes to wait for an RTK fix to launch, the HX1 will be ready to go without sacrificing precision. When urban canyons and interference compromise the navigation of other drones, the HX1 with GPS-denied and degraded capabilities will be ready to go.

Because when the mission matters most,
there's no room for compromise.
