Smart NDT partners with Flyability to bring world class indoor drones to Italy

Smart NDT has partnered with Flyability to bring the Elios 2 indoor drone to Italy.


September 29, 2021—Smart NDT is now an authorized reseller of Flyability’s Elios and Elios 2, the world’s first collision-tolerant drones.

One of the leading providers of RVI tools in Italy has added Flyability’s indoor drones to the list of professional inspection tools that it offers.

"Smart NDT is happy to announce the conclusion of an important agreement for the distribution of drones for remote visual inspection," says Luca Martin, CEO of Smart NDT. "This partnership will allow us to further complete the range of RVI solutions present in our portfolio. From the beginning we appreciated Flyability's strong focus on innovation and the desire to be in the forefront, always guaranteeing the highest quality and reliability in a constantly evolving technology."

In industries that require regular inspections, such as Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and Chemicals, the Elios 2 is quickly becoming the go-to solution for internal inspections.

Using the Elios 2, inspectors have helped realize significant savings and decreased downtimes for asset owners, reducing inspection costs by as much as 90%. Inspectors have also significantly improved safety with the Elios 2 by using it to reduce or even eliminate the need for inspectors to enter confined spaces in order to collect visual data.

The Elios 2 indoor drone is safely contained within a carbon fiber cage, which gives inspectors the freedom to operate it in a variety of environments, as well as complete darkness using its LED lighting and thermal imagery. The cage helps make the drone collision tolerant, so that it can collide and continue flying. This feature combined with the high quality of the drone’s visual data allows inspectors to conduct inspections remotely in tight, confined spaces that might otherwise pose a safety risk for human entry.
