About Ascent AeroSystems


The global leader in portable, rugged UAVs since 2015

Ascent AeroSystems designs and manufactures rugged “coaxial” drones for the industrial, public safety and defense markets.  With a unique cylindrical configuration that’s far more portable and durable than conventional multirotors, our drones are ideal for mission-critical operations in the toughest environments. More than five years of development have made us the premier source for coaxial vehicles, and hundreds have been delivered to professional, commercial, government and military customers worldwide. We’re based 20 miles north of Boston in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.
