ELIOS

INSPECT&EXPLORE
INDOOR AND CONFINED SPACES

Discover the first collision-tolerant drone, designed for the inspection and exploration of the most inaccessible places. Allowing for the first time to fly in complex, cluttered or indoor spaces, Elios unleashes the potential of UAVs in numerous applications where their use was previously too dangerous or simply impossible.

MORE ABOUT THE USE CASES

Collision-Tolerant

400’000’000 YEARS OF EVOLUTION SOLVING INDOOR FLIGHT CHALLENGES

Inspired by the ability of insects to keep their stability after an in-flight collision, the flight concept of Elios is the result of hundreds of millions of years of natural evolution. Using a unique and pragmatic approach, Elios solves the biggest challenges of flying drones indoor in complex and confined spaces or in contact with humans: the risk of collisions and injuries. Privileging tolerance to collisions over the attempt to sense and avoid obstacles, Elios provides the level of reliability that is expected by professionals operating in environments where failure to operate is not an option.

BENEFITS

CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME

IMPROVE SAFETY

IMPROVE SAFETY

By enabling remote visual inspection in any indoor environments, Elios prevents the need for workers to enter hazardous places or face dangerous situations.

REDUCE DOWNTIME

REDUCE DOWNTIME

Elios is deployed and ready to gather visuals within a minute. Performing an entire inspection is no longer a matter of days but hours.

LOWER COST

LOWER COST

Scaffolding, rope access, or crane are no longer needed to perform visual inspections. Elios gathers visuals of the most complex and cluttered spaces for you.

PROTECTIVE FRAME

COLLISION-TOLERANCE. A REVOLUTIONARY NEW WAY OF FLYING.

Carrying its own protective frame, Elios is collision-tolerant. This means you can access the tightest spaces without any risk of crashing. No need to focus on avoiding obstacles, Elios bounces off and roll on them to find its way. You can fly close or even in direct contact with humans without any risks of injuries.

PAYLOAD

DESIGNED FOR THE PROFESSIONALS.

Elios embeds a full HD camera, a thermal camera, and an on-board LED lighting system with a remotely adjustable intensity. Once you have reached the most inaccessible places, you have all the tools on board to take the best possible shot in nearly any lighting conditions.

WIRELESS COMMUNICATION

ROBUSTNESS AND PERFORMANCE.

Elios is equipped with a cutting-edge wireless communication system that provides a live video feedback allowing the pilot to bring the drone to the most inaccessible places up to multiple hundreds of meters beyond line of sight.

GROUND STATION

EFFICIENTLY PILOT FROM A SAFE PLACE.

Elios Ground Station is composed of a remote controller, a tablet and a purpose designed ground control application providing the pilot with live telemetry data, an SD live video stream captured by Elios, and the information and controls that you need to operate it efficiently and safely.

USABILITY

BUILT FOR THE REAL WORLD. ADAPTED TO YOUR BUSINESS.

As it applies to all new technologies, integrating drones into your workflow requires driving changes. However, it is important that these changes have a minimal impact on your own schedule and comply with the singular aspects of your profession.

We made Elios dust and splash resistant, operational in environments between 0° and 50°C, and mistake tolerant so that it can be easily piloted by everyone. Operational after a few hours of training, your personnel will quickly get up to speed with their piloting skills. Designed to fly indoors where few or no drone regulations apply, Elios will be smoothly integrated into your workflow.

DATA

MAKING THE BEST OUT OF YOUR FLIGHT TIME.

Once you’re done flying, you can exploit the data recorded on the SD card, embedded on Elios, right away. No post processing or specific software is required. To avoid hurdles, we are using simple video files that can be read i.e. on the tablet of the Ground Station. Flight data, thermal video and selected Points Of Interest (POI) are recorded on a dedicated SD card. By using Flyability Inspector, you can correlate flight data and POIs with both video streams.
