While most drone companies are focused on how drones work in the sky, at XWorks, we’re setting our sights on how they work on the ground, and designing solutions that will define how drones fit into our everyday lives.

It starts with our flagship product, the Robotic Docking and Interchange Station (RDISt).

The RDISt acts as a home base for drones, allowing for safe landing, storage, charging and interaction between drones and users.

It ends with a comprehensive vision for the way drones will work for us -- and with us -- in the future of truly automated, truly autonomous flight.

Fly smart.

It’s difficult to think of a technology innovation that has captured the imagination quite like unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone, technology.

Rarely does a technology emerge that has such sweeping implications, poised to transform how we do everything from deliver packages to handling emergency response to monitoring oil and gas lines.  

Just as important are the crucial logistical questions that have to be answered, and challenges that have to be solved in order to make drone technology truly viable in a commercial setting:XWorks is one of a select group of companies dedicating ourselves to answering these vital questions. In the process, we are developing the solutions that will form the essential backbone of commercial drone infrastructure. 

Today, drone flights are rare, and are handled only by highly specialized operators, operating in sparsely populated urban areas.

Tomorrow, drones will be operating at higher volumes, in busy urban areas, and being handled by everyday consumers -- which means we will need solutions that make interacting with drones:

That’s exactly what we at XWorks have created with our flagship product: the Robotic Docking and Interchange Station (RDISt).

The RDISt acts as a home base for drones: a dedicated space where drones can land, interchange payloads, charge their batteries, and take off -- all from a single, contained location.

RDISt Benefits
with multiple drone brands and sizes
Doubles the range of that a drone can safely fly
Provides a safety bridge between the drone and the end user
Creates an “instant state of readiness” so that drones can be deployed quickly
Changes power systems autonomously
Provides a storage/hangar area for idle drones
Enables safe, efficient interchange of payloads

RDISt is positioned to become an essential component of drone fleets in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Package delivery
  • Law enforcement
  • Emergency response
  • Agriculture
  • Military
  • US Forest Service (and other country equivalents)
  • Search and rescue
  • Aerial photography & videography
  • Property monitoring & security
  • Oil and gas
  • And more

XWorks is making tremendous progress with RDISt, and with our mission of enabling safer, smarter flight for drones.

XWorks has filed an intellectual property patent to protect the innovations within the RDISt system, including our precision landing system, and other items associated with drone technologies such as a shifting center of gravity, interaction with an autonomous car, and others. We have also filed for an international patent that will enable us to have protection in multiple countries.

RDISt is just the beginning of the XWorks story. To learn more about other products in the pipeline, what’s next for XWorks, and how you can be involved, request access to the Business Plan tab of this profile, and let’s talk!
