ObliX is an unmanned airship designed from the ground up for safety, endurance, and maneuverability. Its unique combination of features make it particularly well-suited for safety-critical long-range missions:
Pipelines, power transmission, railways, vegetation management, etc.
Remote sensing, yield prediction, etc.
Video streaming, crowd monitoring, etc.
Plus many more, including construction site monitoring, first-responder support, anti-poaching surveillance, research, deliveries, etc.
Even in the unlikely event of a severe failure, the airship would not crash but slowly sink, making it safe to operate over people.
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 allow movement in all directions. Excellent flight stability guaranteed.
We are here to help you and are happy to integrate ObliX into your data-analysis 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, non-inflammable|
|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!
