About Us

We employ a combination of hardware and software platforms to provide innovative solutions to conventional problems. Drones are integral to redefining services that conventionally rely on terrestrial solutions.

Our journey began in 2016 with a vision to revolutionize the use of drones across various sectors, including agriculture, surveillance, and delivery. Our team consists of passionate and experienced engineers, designers, and pilots who continuously push the boundaries of drone technology.

The name ‘Thanos’ symbolizes determination, strength, transformation, renewal, and positive change. We selected this name due to our profound and unwavering connection to drone technology, which we believe can have a positive impact by addressing some of the most challenging problems in our ever-changing world.

Some of the challenges we faced on our journey included the high cost of drone technology and the limited awareness of its applications and advantages. However, we overcame these challenges through investments in research and development, reductions in operational costs, and extensive marketing and outreach campaigns.
What sets us apart is our ability to design and manufacture our own drones with various capacities and capabilities, including agricultural spraying drones, surveillance drones, and delivery drones. In the past, we have offered a range of services using drones, such as spraying-as-a-service, aerial surveying, custom drone manufacturing, and drone repairs.

Some of the future plans and goals we have for our company include:

  • Scaling up to become a prominent player in the Indian drone industry.
  • Expanding our product portfolio and service offerings to serve a broader range of sectors and domains.
  • Collaborating with more stakeholders and organizations to promote the adoption and innovation of drone technology.
  • Creating a positive social impact by utilizing drone technology for humanitarian and environmental causes.
