WORKLY is set to attend the world’s largest Unmanned Systems and Robotics Symposium and Exhibition

Michael SALAS - 05/08/13

AUVSI, the world’s largest Unmanned Systems and Robotics Symposium and Exhibition since 1973, is set to start next week in Washington, D.C. UBIFRANCEis bringing six French companies, along with the representative of the ministry of French Defense at the event, to meet the biggest influencers in the industry.

One of the delegation that will be present at the AUVSI show this year is Workfly, an innovative French drone company based in Neuilly-sur-Marne in France. As Workfly is set to attend the AUVSI show next week, read more information about the company below to better understand their expertise and what they are doing to become one of the leading innovators in their industry.

Social status
The drone company Workfly is an SME created by MR. GUILHOT-GAUDEFFROY and his associates in June 2004. Based in Neuilly-sur-Marne, in the Parisian suburb, their social status is that of an SAS, a simplified joint stock company, and its initial capital was €37,000.

Research and Development Division
Workfly is developing applied research activity aimed at a wide range of versatile civil drones. The company currently specialises in rotary wings, and more specifically in counter-rotative blades. It uses expertise in the fields of aeronautics, aerodynamics, electronics, and computing. The first product developped by Workfly was the Flitting-Sensor drone, notably made for aerial observation. The advantage of this drone over its competitors is that its structure allows it to be totally streamlined, thus removing any risk of an accident linked to a collision with the rotating blades.

Services and Operations Division
Our drone company has decided to soon make their first prototypes available to clients interested by the development of aerial activity. Once the systems have been fully developped, said prototypes will be sold to clients who can carry the load of their choice. The Services and Operations division is therefore in charge of the setup of structurrs for exploration as well as the distribution and operation of the drones developped by the Research and Development division.

On the technical side of things, our drone company intends to make this first product, Flitting-Sensor, the test lab of all embedded control systems, as well as the test site of validation of all aspects linked to the complex mechanics of counter-rotative rotary blades. As soon as the drone is declared ready for industrialisation, it will go from a production unit to mass production. The business objective is to achieve a park in France, spread over several regional operating centers, while
opening up the company on the European market.
