Apellix CEO brings industry expertise to ASMEs Mobile Unmanned Systems Standards Committee
Apellix founder and CEO Bob Dahlstrom a member of the Mobile Unmanned Systems Standards Committee of American Society of Mechanical Engineers is contributing to the standards committee and its subcommittee for Unmanned Aerial Systems for Inspection.
Apellix that designs and builds drones that paint/coating, cleaning, and take contact-based measurements. Mr. Dahlstrom has a wealth of experience around the application of these specific types of drone in business and industry. The Apellix systems are frequently tethered with an umbilical cord that supplies both power and materials such as paint or chemical washing agents. The intimate knowledge of these types of systems and their use in industry possessed by Mr. Dahlstrom will broaden the knowledge base of the existing committee. Also, as a member of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) involved in several NACE standards committees, Mr. Dahlstrom can provide specific inspection information for both visual and contact-based measurements by drones as nondestructive evaluations and testing as part of an inspection and maintenance regime for industrial, infrastructure and other assets.
Apellix has developed an aerial robotic platform with patented software and sensor arrays for controlled autonomous precision flight to complete a wide range of tasks currently too expensive or too dangerous to otherwise perform. Apellix systems paint/coat, clean, and take contact-based measurements. The systems are frequently tethered with an umbilical cord that supplies both power and materials such as paint or chemical washing agents. Video examples of Apellix drones at work can be found on the Apellix Website. www.Apellix.com
ASME is the globally recognized, trusted source of standards used around the world. Established in 1880 with over 100,000 members in over 140 countries ASME promotes the art, science and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe. In addition to promulgating industry standards, ASME provides courses, publications and certifications, holds events and provides resources for its members and interested parties www.asme.org.
