UAVIEW Optical Flow, is an inspection drone, surrounded by a 360° protection, it has been designed to analyse industrial environments, such as the nuclear, petrochemical, naval, underground sectors… This mode allows the UAV to be stabilised in position like a GPS but without the presence of the GPS in internal flight. It is functional at all altitudes and facilitates flight to acquire the best technical inspection data. A LIDAR on top of the UAV avoids collisions above the UAV for ceiling inspection. It is specially designed to be highly tolerant of collisions in confined environments. This version is equipped with a 4K camera that can take video and photos. The flight autonomy is approximately 13 minutes. Its 1080P digital video transmission is the strongest on the world market. Based on the Herelink technology, it has a proven track record with a range of over 20 km outdoors. Indoors, it will give great flexibility, and will allow you to go into the most complex confined environments possible.
A camera that can be rotated through 180° and optimised illumination
High-performance lighting provides better quality images. That is why UAView Optical Flow is equipped with 6 LED panels. This provides a light aperture of half a sphere towards the front. The quality of the light allows safer control both underwater and on sight.
Two LED panels are attached to the camera, which can be rotated through 180°. The camera can be tilted upwards by 90° and downwards by 90°. This allows both top and bottom illumination.
This means that around 12,000 lumens are used to enable the camera to fly both day and night, and variable power lighting to avoid glare from the camera on reflective parts.
Les modes de vol
A first for a confined environment inspection drone. The use of an optical sensor to maintain the UAV’s position without GPS. This guarantees you a serene flight in a very restricted environment.
Le LIDAR de maintien d’altitude par rapport au sol vous permet de piloter le drone sans se concentrer sur l’évolution de l’altitude du drone.
The LIDAR on top allows the UAV to avoid contact with the ceiling, allowing in particular the inspection of petrochemical tanks in complete safety.
3D modelisations possibilities
The sensor can be set to take pictures at regular intervals. The orientation of the camera, the free field of view of the camera, the multi-directional lighting system and the stability of the UAV will enable you to take high quality photogrammetry indoors.
The technical inspection associated with photogrammetry will allow you to dimension volumes, distances, and other measurements. UAView Optic Flow becomes a powerful and complete inspection tool.

Deporting the radio link
The use of a range extension can be useful, especially when inspecting galleries or pipelines down below, or simply the obligation of the remote pilot not being close to the environment inspected by the UAV (risk of anoxia, risk of falling materials…). The range extender is installed in about 2 minutes and allows the communication link between the ground station and the UAV to be maintained.
