Elemental was borne out of an exploration; How to radically increase the sustainability of transporting goods and people.
Starting in 2017, TES investigated multiple solutions to this problem, including improving the experience telepresence to a degree people would actually fly less.
Working together with various partners, TES started to look increasingly at lighter-than-air technology and how advances in material, design, production and autonomy developments now opened up new routes for this old modality.
Starting from zero, TES build Elemental to grow in the venture-backed R&D-heavy aerospace company which it is today. Built by former executives and seasoned engineers from the aerospace industry. Elemental is on a mission to solve the world's most pressing challenges in flight operations of uncrewed aircraft systems by combining the technical innovations of drones with the upsides of LTA (lighter-than-air) technologies.
