Aerobits is a specialised developer of miniature avionic systems, such as transponders, for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones. Based on patented technology, our hardware and software solutions process radio signals on very small surfaces. This concept is at the core of our OEM modules (low-level assembly function modules), which are the basic building block of miniaturized avionics.

We support global initiatives to integrate UAS into civilian airspace and develop the path towards full autonomy, and specialize in air traffic control systems, which are an important component of future UTM (unmanned traffic management) and U-Space solutions.

Our miniaturised avionics enable DAA (detect and avoid) capabilities for even the smallest drones, enhancing safety for all airspace users and providing easier UAS identification and tracking.
