Breakthrough Technology from VTOL Technologies

The Problem...

Today, customers either use manned helicopters or foot based personnel for many asset and infrastructure inspection tasks. The challenge is being able to repeat the inspection process safely, accurately, time after time and establish trend data delivering higher quality inspection information, whilst reducing the overall inspection task budget.

Not only do businesses need to drive down costs, but often the demands on today's networks means that inspection times need to be reduced whilst inspection frequency is having to be increased. The ability to inspect network based infrastructure more accurately, more consistently and at lower cost whilst reducing the need for manual inspection data post-processing is becoming a strategic objective.

The Solution

Three critical technologies need to be incorporated in a new, long-endurance, precision-flight, flexible and "deployable anywhere" "drone" or RPAS platform. This new breakthrough platform is VTOL Technologies VTOL Flying Wing.

The three critical technologies are being combined with this unique airframe are high-accuracy GNSS [Global Navigation Satellite System], both short-range and medium-range, miniaturised collision-avoidance systems and persistent Beyond Visual Line Of Sight [BVLOS] communications technologies.
