UT Testing with the Apellix Aerial Robotic Platform

This video is of the patented Apellix Smart Bee(TM) aerial robotic system conducting Ultrasonic Thickness (Ultrasonic Testing / UT) gauging of 150’ (45m) and a 125’ (~38m) elevated water storage tanks. The aircraft approach is autonomously performed by the onboard software and the UT measurement (and other data) is displayed live on the operator’s tablet, saved onboard the aircraft, and sent to a secure location on the cloud. See our video “It’s all about the data” for an example of the dashboard showing the data collected during flights.
