ACSL SOTEN - Durable Versatility for Real World Operations

The ACSL SOTEN is a small aerial photography drone with wide expandability including a one-touch swappable camera. Data security measures for communications data, flight data, and photo/video data allow for NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) compliance. An IP43 rating allow mission critical flying in most weather conditions.


  • Compact and Portable Design:  The ACSL SOTEN is highly portable and easy to deploy. Weighing just 1.7 kg (4 lbs) and featuring a foldable design, the SOTEN is an ideal choice for operations requiring mobility and ease of use across diverse locations.
  • IP43 Rating:  Fly confidently in adverse conditions with the security of the SOTEN's IP43 rating that resists rain, dirt and dust. This robust build quality is crucial for missions requiring durability in the face of the harshest of elements.
  • Advanced Security Measures:  The SOTEN incorporates security measures compliant with ISO15408 standards, ensuring protection from hijacking, tampering, and data theft. This includes encrypted communications and the option to manage data securely in the cloud.
  • Extensive Scalability:  With the use of LTE communications, SOTEN can be controlled over the internet, enabling autonomous beyond-visual-line-of-sight (level-3) operations in remote areas such as mountainous terrain and inside industrial plants.
  • One-Touch Swappable Camera System:  A standout feature of the SOTEN is its one-touch swappable camera system. With the push of a button users can tailor the SOTEN to any mission.
  • User-Friendly Interface:  The SOTEN's intuitive UI simplifies drone operation, making it accessible even to those new to drone flying. This ease of use is a significant advantage in situations where quick deployment and operation are essential.
  • 33 MPH Max Flight Speed:  Power your operations with efficiency, quickly traversing long distances.
  • Obstacle Avoidance:  Fly with confidence as multi-directional sensors help keep your mission safe from collisions.
