Confined Space Inspection Drone
What is Elios?
Created by Flyability, the Elios 2 was the first drone to be created for indoor inspections. The need for such a solution was simple: to negate the need for humans to enter areas that are hazardous to life.
Also, such a tool comes with a plethora of other benefits, the most attractive being its speed of deployment and the that it reduces the costs of confined space inspections to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. In short, the Elios 2 saves organisations money, effort, time and, most importantly, lives.
Our indoor inspection drone Elios 2 has features such as a thermal vision camera, high-resolution photo cameras, LED lighting, and easy navigation technology that enables a user to collect visual and thermal images in dark confined spaces.
The nature of confined space inspection is that of multiple different surfaces and angles and areas that are challenging to view adequately. There’s also that of the danger of humans working in such a space, with limited access and egress. The Elios removes all of these aspects, allowing asset inspectors to gain accurate, high-quality visual images as if they were actually inside the space.
The drone is protected by a decoupled cage that allows it to bounce and roll on surfaces, and a full HD provides the imaging and a FLIR camera, lit by powerful LEDs. This payload can be rotated and inclined as needed, and images and video captured with perfect clarity. The data is transmitted via a rugged system, extending with a deployable antenna if needed. The operator can also fly the unit beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS).
As data is collected, it can easily be transformed into readable inspection reports thanks to the included advanced software.
