UP-CLOSE & ROBOTIC

 

KEEP PEOPLE OFF ROPES, LADDERS, CRANES, AND SCAFFOLDING.

Inspection climbing is the most dangerous job in the United States. Our up-close and touch-capable platform can help.

Our hybrid-cyclorotor aerial platform is optimized for up-close and touch-based robotic tasks. It can put a 5-10lb payload near or in contact with an elevated target.

BRIDGES

614,000 US bridges must be inspected every 2 years.

Today inspectors climb ropes and use crack-cards to manually estimate the width of cracks.

TOWERS

417,000 US towers are inspected.

Today inspectors check bolt torque and electrical connections.

POWERLINES

The US has 5.5 million miles of power lines (220,000 high voltage), supported by 180 million utility poles.

Today technicians use helicopters to install small colored bird diverters on 345kV live lines.

WIND TURBINES

3,000 new wind turbines are added to the existing 60,000+ in the US inventory every year.

Today inspectors rappel down the blades and tap the blade to listen for subsurface delamination.

Our payload arms can be quickly swapped for any task. We can measure crack width and detect subsurface delamination on bridges and wind turbines. That's just the beginning.
