The radical Optimus homeland security drone that needs no help from humans

  • Optimus can fly for half an hour carrying 1kg (2lbs) without a human
  • The drone will be used by private businesses for aerial surveys and surveillance  
  • Airobotics is the first company in the world permitted to fly an automated drone

A radical drone that can fly without the help of humans has revealed over $32 million in funding from backers including Microsoft is one step closer to hitting the skies of Israel.

Optimus can fly for half an hour without a human pilot on the controls.

Its creator, Airobotics, recently became the first in the world to be granted permission to fly an automated drone, and says the  new funds will meet growing demand in the mining and homeland security industries and go towards investing in its business development efforts and expansion across industrial facilities.

Israel’s Airobotics, a maker of automated industrial drones, said on it has raised $32.5 million in a private funding round led by BlueRun Ventures China, Microsoft Ventures and OurCrowd.com.

It also received funding from existing investors including, CRV, BRV, Waze CEO Noam Bardin, Richard Wooldridge, and David Roux, the co-founder and former chairman of Silver Lake Partners.

Airobotics said it is creating a new division of Homeland Security and Defense, as well as an initiative to use fully automated drones to perform emergency tasks in cities.

Airobotics is the first company in the world to be granted authorization to fly fully automated drones without a pilot, as licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI), which positions the company as a world-leader in the field of automated drones.

Ran Krauss, CEO of Airobotics, previously said: 'Our core technology is truly autonomous.

'That means drones are launched and landed automatically, without need for a pilot.'

The vehicle is launched from an automated 'airbase' which is pre-programmed using computer software.

'Our system is easily operated by anyone from anywhere,' he said.

'And drones are deployed from a click of a button.'

The drone is fitted with military-grade avionics for precise control and can be pre-programmed to carry out 'missions'.

It is fitted with a robotic arm that is capable of swapping batteries, which removes the need for humans to recharge the vehicle.

The large-size unmanned vehicle is fitted with a camera capable of streaming real-time aerial video.

Its creators said the drone's camera could be used by private businesses, such as mining companies, for aerial surveys and surveillance of their land.

'Routine inspections with drones not only significantly save resources but also prevents endangerment of employees performing them,' said Mr Krauss.

He added that drones could be used to respond to emergencies that would put employees in danger, such as a gas leak.
