Intuitive Aerial was founded in 2011 by the engineer Mårten Svanfeldt and serial entrepreneur Jonas Lindqvist in Linköping, Sweden. Drawing from the local area’s heritage in aerospace technology and inspired by the unrestricted camera movements from computer graphics, the company started out developing aerial rigs for cinema cameras. The ensuing product, the Black Armoured Drone which later became AERIGON®, pioneered in its field as the first turn key heavy lifter for professional film cameras, being the first UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) to fly a RED Epic and the high-speed Phantom Flex 4K camera. AERIGON has since then been a successful tool in the international film industry.
