Elios 3 BVLOS Drone
Quickly turn asset data into digital insights, with Elios 3 – the first mapping and inspection indoor BVLOS drone, offering an unmatched combination of intelligence, versatility and stability. Elios 3 close-up inspection delivers stunning image quality, consistently smooth, even in the complete darkness, that turns asset data into digital insights.
Improved battery system
The Elios 3 offers up to 12 minutes of flight time* so you can go the extra mile in every single flight. With a new insert & lock mechanism battery manipulations are easier than ever. (*Flight time without a payload mounted on the payload bay).
The modular payload bay features two ports: one dedicated to the LiDAR, and one for auxiliary payloads. This unique integrated design provides aerial capabilities for a range of upcoming indoor applications. It turns Elios 3 into a versatile, future-proof tool, configured to fit your mission needs.
Dust-proof lighting system
Thanks to the industry-leading oblique and dust-proof lighting system, looking for pitting, cracks, or build-ups becomes as natural as doing it manually with a flashlight.
Ready for the tough work
Designed after Flyabilty’s patent-pending collision-resilient flight controller, Elios 3 is fit for use in the most complex industrial settings. With its signature cage and unique reversing motors, Elios 3 aerial mapping drone is the only drone in the market that can recover from flipping upside-down without crashing.
Powered by FlyAware™
FlyAware™ is the unique combination of computer vision, LiDAR technology, and a powerful NVidia graphic engine. Acting as a centimetre-accurate indoor GPS, it builds real-time 3D maps enabling the drone to sense its surroundings instantaneously. Flyaware™ allows for groundbreaking stability and highly accurate locational awareness.
Stone-still stability, no matter the conditions
The all new SLAM-based stabilisation algorithm catches the tiniest unpredictable movements of the drone and instructs the flight controller to compensate for it. This allows for the drone to float in the air still as a stone even in the toughest conditions.
Flawless locational awareness
The embedded LiDAR constantly scans the surroundings to build a high-density point cloud map. This map is displayed instantly in the Cockpit App, empowering pilots with exceptional locational awareness. A real-time 3D view of the drone’s trajectory and environment provides crucial data.
Understand where to focus your maintenance efforts
From data capture to decision making, Inspector 4.0 and Elios 3 work hand in hand to provide operational continuity:
- Reporting is done intuitively on a 3D model of your asset.
- Points of interest captured in flight are readily available in a high density point cloud offering a reliable data localisation system.
Survey-grade point clouds
Thanks to an integration with GeoSLAM’s software suite, Elios 3’s LiDAR data can be processed to build survey-grade 3D models of your asset enabling surveyors to map the truly inaccessible.
