Overview

What we do changes lives – workers’ lives, and the lives of those in our communities. Apellix systems are reducing occupational hazards and making working at heights safer. We are saving tax dollars for the corrosion management of public assets, such as highway bridges and battleships, and saving private dollars on the protection of buildings, ships, storage tanks, oil rigs, and more.

Apellix has developed the technology to do Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) at a level never seen before. Using an Apellix NDT aerial platform, the owner of a cruise ship, the commander of a Navy battleship, or a state department of transportation can collect 1,000 readings on an expanse of surface where, in the past, only 10 or 20 readings could be taken.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Performs 100 or more DFT readings per hour, at multiple measurement sites, with optional all-day flight via ground power (no battery changes)
  • User interface displays real-time measurement values
  • Data records are exported to user as a text-based .csv file
  • Performs measurements pursuant to SSPC-PA 2, ASTM D 7091, IMO PSPC and others
  • Reaches vertical locations up to 100 m (300 ft) above ground level
  • Operable in winds up to 12 knots (13 mph)
  • Dramatically reduces requirements for scaffolding, lifts, and fall protection equipment

Uses a DeFelsko Positector 6000 electronic measurement gauge for ferrous and nonferrous substrates

WHAT IS AUTONOMOUS FLIGHT?

The pilot simply positions the aircraft near the inspection target and selects the START button on the user interface. The onboard computer then takes over, performing all flight control and testing before returning to a safe zone to await further instructions.
