There are many use cases for which conventional drones today lack endurance, safety, or both. ObliX is an unmanned airship that solves these problems: It can fly for an entire day, allows precise maneuvering even in windy conditions, and is safe to operate over people.
Situational awareness, crime deterrence, etc.
Pipelines, power transmission, railways, vegetation management, etc.
Advertising, video streaming, etc.
Plus many more, including construction site monitoring, precision agriculture, anti-poaching surveillance, research, deliveries, etc.
Equipped with solar panels, ObliX can stay airborne for up to 8 hours and cover up to 100 miles.
ObliX’s novel engine layout and sophisticated flight control system allow movement in all directions. Excellent flight stability guaranteed.
Even in the unlikely event of a severe failure, the airship would not crash but slowly sink, making it safe to operate over people.
We are here to help you and are happy to integrate ObliX into your data science workflows.
|Flight Time||8 h|
|Range||100 mi (161 km) against 3.5 mph (6 km/h) wind|
|Payload||3.3 lb (1.5 kg), sufficient for sensors like HD video, multi- spectral imaging, LiDAR, etc.|
|Power Source||battery / solar panels|
|Length||26′3″ (8 m)|
|Diameter||6′7″ (2 m)|
|Lifting Gas||565 cu ft (16 m3) Helium, nonflammable|
|Rotor Diameter||1 × 22″ (550 mm) stern, 8 × 3.5″ (89 mm) ducted fans|
|Maximum Wind||16 mph (26 km/h)|
Note: Safety above is measured as the inverse of impact energy at a vertical crash from 100 m.
Every component of ObliX has been designed and optimized using computer-aided design (CAD), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and physics simulation.
ObliX mini is a small-scale prototype of length 6'5" (1.95 m) that we have used to test our design, manufacturing process, and software.
ObliX can autonomously navigate its environment, thus greatly reducing the workload for the pilot. Within regulatory boundaries, it can fly by itself!
