C4D Intel and Flyability announce a partnership

[ December 20th, 2016] – C4D Intel has partnered with Swiss aerial technology company Flyability to bring the companies innovative first collision-tolerant drone to the Australasian market.


With this partnership, C4D Intel will be the primary supplier of the Elios unmanned aerial vehicle in Australia.

“It’s with great excitement that we announce our partnership with Flyability,” said C4D Intel Managing Director Alistair Scott-Farris.

“The Elios aircraft is an innovative first, being the first UAV designed specifically for inspection and exploration of inaccessible spaces. It’s going to be an absolute game changer for asset inspection.”

Inspired by the flight of insects, the Elios aircraft is Flyability’s most recent product.

Based on a patented protective cage and flight control algorithms it has been designed and field tested for industrial inspection. It can tolerate collisions and thus fly safely and easily indoors, in confined and complex spaces.

Applications include the inspection of boilers, tanks, vessels, stacks among others.

“Traditional industrial inspection, including confined space and hazardous area inspection can be fraught with risk, whilst also proving to be time consuming and expensive,” explains Mr Scott-Farris.

“By deploying state of the art technology which is purpose built, such as the Elios UAV, we’re able to provide our clients with rapid HD Imagery on the internals of critical equipment without putting personnel in harm’s way.

“The images which are captured can be sent in near real time to anywhere in the world providing immediate specialist input for remote sites and plants for rapid problem resolution.

“We are giving our clients the ability to greatly reduce equipment downtime and effect on production whilst reducing risk to operators, the ultimate win – win for operating plants .”

In addition to providing asset inspection services using the Elios drones, C4D Intel is also an official reseller of Flyability products, and offers leasing and training options in Australia.

“We are very happy and proud to add C4D Intel to our list of official partners and suppliers. With a team of highly knowledgeable professionals in the field of Asset Inspection and Mapping and countless hours of intensive use of drones, we believe C4D Intel to be an excellent partner to bring and develop the use of Elios in Australia.” Says Flyability CEO – Patrick Thévoz. “Mining and Maritime Maintenance being key growth drivers for Flyability, Australia is quickly becoming an important market. We look forward to all the safe explorations of inaccessible place in the years to come.”
