We are bringing about a new era for aerial robotics with the introduction of AirStrato, an electrical powered aircraft able to fly almost twice as high as a commercial airliner.

This product fills a huge gap between expensive, large military unmanned aerial vehicles and less expensive, small-scale civilian commercial drones by combining the performance of the former with the price of the latter. This will allow small-scale businesses, research institutions and even individuals to benefit from an affordable, high performance aerial robot.

AirStrato can be controlled from any part of the world via satellite or GSM communication over the Internet; it can takeoff and land from any location, no matter how remote; it is very beautiful and most of all is affordable. When ARCA decided to create this aircraft we had only one goal in mind: to create a tool that will expand the human capabilities to explore and discover.

The Explorer is a stratospheric flying robot designed to meet your highest expectations of an unmanned aerial vehicle. A flight ceiling of 60,000 ft (18,000 m) using solar cells and batteries or 13,000 ft (4,000 m) using hybrid propulsion with power generator and batteries, almost a day of endurance and the capability to be controlled via satellite or GSM communication over the Internet is far beyond any other civilian unmanned aerial vehicle can provide for this price range. The generous payload space and weight make it suitable for a wide range of applications. The high flight ceiling and great autonomy allows you to perform flights in near space conditions for long durations.

The Explorer is currently under tests and is available for pre-order at a 20% price reduction. After the commercial production will start, customers who pre-ordered will be able to purchase this model and future AirStrato models at a 10% price reduction for a period of one year.

The Pioneer is a slightly smaller version of the Explorer, designed to perform flights at lower altitudes. A 26,000 ft (8,000 m) flight ceiling using solar cells and batteries or 13,000 ft (4,000 m) using hybrid propulsion with power generator and batteries, satellite control (with optional satellite communication device), and between 12-16 hours of endurance makes Pioneer a very competitive air robot.

The Pioneer is currently under test and is available for preorder at a 15% price reduction. After commercial production is started customers who pre-order will be able to purchase this model and AirStrato Explorer at a 5% price reduction for a period of one year.

What if our customers would want to launch the AirStrato robot from remote areas, where a runway is not available? This is the reason for which we have created the Accelerator, a pneumatic launcher designed to allow both the Pioneer and Explorer to take-off in less than one second from virtually any place on the planet. Since the AirStrato has an on board recovery parachute, the aircraft can also land without the use of a runway. The idea to use a launcher for unmanned aerial vehicles is not new, but our product is compact and beautiful, as it complements the AirStrato design.

The Interface is your mission control center. It is designed to communicate with all AirStrato models via satellite, no matter how far away you are from your aircraft. It allows you to view all flight parameters, to program the autopilot or to control the aircraft using inertial stabilization or in full manual mode. It also enables you to activate or deactivate sub-systems or to interact with your payload. It has a beautiful, curved design that complements the AirStrato and Accelerator and is built entirely of composites.
