Your Safety Partner for the Technological Revolution

Apellix, the safety partner for the technological revolution, is proud to announce that has been granted its third full patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) with a dispensing tool, an autonomous (moveable) base station, and an umbilical / tether apparatus.

Bob Dahlstrom, Apellix founder and CEO, said: “This patent further establishes our dominance in the use of aerial robotic systems for modifying and working on structures and buildings. Enabling mobile and autonomous base stations to follow software-controlled aerial robotic systems while transferring materials such as paint, water, or gases up an umbilical system opens a world of possibilities to do “real work” with aircraft.”

The Apellix precision-controlled aerial robotics systems are based on its patented software platform and enable moving workers from harm’s way. By adding a robotic arm and an end effector (i.e. hand with tools) to a software-controlled aircraft we enable it to fly up to a structure, and under full computer control, touch or modify the structure. Thereby performing the dirty, dangerous and expensive work that needs to be done while keeping employees safe on the ground

Apellix does not change the underlying cleaning, coating or testing technology. We integrate existing technology into our robotics platform and make it work better, safer, faster, and with more robust results. We create economic value by improving on human performance 20 to 50x or more, by eliminating or reducing the need for scaffolding, man-lifts and workers suspended by ropes, by turning high-value assets around quicker, and by bringing science to the worksite through our introduction of computer control. As a completely new benefit, Apellix also stores all project data such as surface temperature, highly accurate locational position information, test results or paint spray flow rates, and even localized hydrocarbon levels in its cloud-based repository. In certain applications, such as testing a 100-meter tall refinery flare stack, our aircraft can save $5 or 10 million dollars in down time, and up to a million dollars in scaffolding costs on a single project.

Apellix, an early-stage software company based in Jacksonville, Florida, develops custom bespoke industrial solutions based on our aerial robotics platform. Our patented software and sensor arrays control precision flight to perform a wide range of tasks currently too expensive or too dangerous to otherwise perform. Video examples of Apellix drones at work can be on the Apellix Website.
