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.



Decrease downtime and inspection costs, avoid confined space entry and increase worker safety by remotely accessing boilers, tanks, pressure vessels, tunnels and other complex environments inside your plant.


No piloting experience needed. Simply unpack, insert the battery and fly without risk of collision, damage or injury. The drone is capable of taking off and landing in any variety of environments.


Elios is capable of delivering images up to 0.2 mm/px, even in complete darkness. Along with its LED lighting and thermal imagery, it inspects and explores the unreachable.


Thanks to its protective cage, Elios is safe to fly close and even in contact with humans and the surrounding environment. It can thus be used when the plant is still in operation without any risk of crash or injury.
