OUR BUSINESS

INTRODUCTION

ACSL will continue to contribute
to the evolution of society

ACSL has been promoting social implementation
of drones to date.
We have continued to ask "what
is really needed" for drones to be implemented in society,
and have pursued challenging
demonstration experiments, business models tailored to customer needs, and innovative technology
development.
ACSL will continue to pursue the social implementation of drones in the future.

Leading the world
in autonomous technology

Since its establishment, ACSL has been solving various problems by implementing technology in the society.
ACSL track record will continue to be updated as we take on new challenges.

ACHIEVEMENT 01

Japan's first unassisted,
beyond visual line of sight flight
Japan's first Level 3 (unassisted, BVLOS) was achieved in November 2018 with Japan Post. Drones are being used to make deliveries between post offices.

ACHIEVEMENT 02

Acquired ISO9001 and
JUAV certification
We are the first small rotary wing unmanned aircraft to be certified by the Japan UAV Association (JUAV), and are certified by ISO9001, the international standard for quality management systems established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ACHIEVEMENT 03

The world's first drone manufacturer to be
listed on the stock exchange
On December 21, 2018, ACSL was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers market. This was the world's first IPO for a drone manufacturing company.

ACHIEVEMENT 04

Global team structure
ACSL is a global leader in the field of automated control technology, with a team that spans many different nationalities. (USA, Sweden, China, Nepal, Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria, Singapore, India, Japan)

A business model for social implementation

At ACSL, we continue to ask "what is really needed" for the technology to be implemented in society. As a result, we concluded that it is necessary not to simply buy a drone, but to set firm objectives and issues, and to comprehensively consider the drones and peripheral technologies needed to solve them. In order to achieve this, ACSL uses a "proof-of-concept approach". Upon being approached for drone installation, we will verify the concept of using drones to solve problems, develop a custom-made system as a whole according to the application, and then supply the custom-made system in mass production. This will allow customers to validate the effectiveness of drones at an early stage, as well as the challenges of implementation.

BUSINESS MODEL
TO REALIZE
IMPLEMENTATION

APPROACH

STEP-based
proof-of-concept approach

STEP 01

PoC

Proof of Concept

Clarifying of drone use

  • Elaboration of drone use Examining the possibility of drone utilization ideas.
  • Reliable verification of economic viability.
  • Proof of concept trials.
  • ACSL aircraft.

STEP 02

Customized
system order

Custom development

Design and development
of the entire system

  • Design and development of the entire system.
  • Custom-made drone design and development.
  • Test operation in a low-risk environment.

STEP 03 / 04

Mass production

Introduction to actual operations

Mass production and sales of
custom-made systems

  • Production of customized system.
  • Established as a reproducible operation,
    implemented on a pilot/commercial basis.

*STEP4 is defined as the production and supply of 10 or more units per fiscal year.

OUR CAPABILITY 01

UNIQUE CONTROL
TECHNOLOGY

Control technology that can provide
"cerebellum" and "cerebrum" suitable for
any environment

ACSL's strongest core technology is its proprietary development of all of the "cerebellum" and "cerebrum" of the drone. This allows us to develop and combine the most suitable control technologies for all customer requirements. Control is the most critical technology that governs the behavior of the drone, and because it is developed in house, security is assured. This technology will make it possible for drones to autonomously recognize their environment, fly in GPS denied environments, and behave safely based on AI detection of people.

OUR CAPABILITY 02

RAPID PROTOTYPING TO
MASS PRODUCTION

Development capabilities that cover the
entire process from rapid prototyping to
mass production

At ACSL, we place great importance on Proof of Concept. There is still a lot we don't know about how the new technology of drones can solve people's problems. At ACSL, we can quickly develop prototypes for proof of concept, enabling clients to verify their technology and business in practice. After the technical verification is completed, we can also develop mass production for actual introduction (ISO9001 acquired)

OUR CAPABILITY 03

WIDE RANGE OF
TECHNICAL COVERAGE

Broad, technical coverage

To solve a customer's real challenges, control technology is not sufficient to resolve them alone.
ACSL has extensive technology coverage both internally and externally, including hardware, software, aerodynamics, image processing, artificial intelligence, and manufacturing technology. In this way, customers will be able to consult with us as a One-Stop for application and answer all their technical needs. Because ACSL is so internationally oriented, it is possible to cover the necessary technologies globally.
