UAS energy inspection solution

AiRXOS has launched a new comprehensive Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) solution that allows companies within the energy industry to plan, schedule, operate and monitor all facets of their drone operations from a single platform. The Enterprise Energy Solution runs on AiRXOS’ Air Mobility Platform – a secure, cloud-based, extensible platform that supports the full lifecycle of UAS operations.

The Enterprise Energy Solution provides digital compliance, full situational awareness of airspace and assets, inspection, emergency response/disaster recovery capabilities, analytics, and asset performance tools all in one connected ecosystem. It partners all essential inspection needs with a variety of advanced capabilities, including:

Operational oversight in one platform – providing all the tools needed to fly quickly and safely, including full visibility to airspace and assets, inspection and emergency response capabilities, analytics, and asset performance tools

Compliant solutions – processes, training, and procedures that enable advanced UAS flights and help energy organizations obtain the necessary FAA Waivers, Exemptions, and Certificates of Authorizations (COAs), Special Governmental Interest (SGIs) to perform inspections faster

Central command center – providing for public safety agency coordination, situational awareness of UAS operations, streaming live video, data and operational insights, automated SGI compliance, tracking and reporting and optional media and public advisory alerts

Mission-ready drone toolkit – for inspection, detection, and monitoring needs, including advanced drones, sensors, and professionally qualified pilots, in one turn-key service designed to carry out all forms of inspections

Emergency response and disaster recovery features – integrated video distribution system certified on AT&T’s FirstNet, digital SGI process, and mass alert distribution for rapid external communications to the public, UA operators, media and commercial organizations

Compliance and crew management – designed to track and manage the status of each pilots’ Part 107 license and expiration dates, flight hours and mission planning for a complete pilot workflow

Asset management and security – connects disparate data sources and uses advanced analytics to provide a unified view of an asset’s current state and health to mitigate downtime

Analytics and insights – helps to optimize operations and budget using advanced analytics on the data collected via UAS operation, providing actionable intelligence to better manage assets

Program design – AiRXOS can help energy companies designing the optimal solution for their UAS operations

Mark Lanphear, AiRXOS’ Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development, commented: “Infrastructure inspections with traditional manned aircraft are dangerous, inefficient, and expensive. Now more than ever, energy organizations are looking for solutions to help them deliver safe, scalable, and repeatable operations for greater economic viability. To achieve scale, they need a centralized and standardized view of all operations, manned and unmanned. It’s why we developed the Enterprise Energy Solution – to deliver energy organizations a truly comprehensive platform that brings all UAS lifecycle operations into one view – from enterprise wide infrastructure inspection and surveillance, to asset and crew management, situational awareness and emergency operations after a natural disaster – all on one platform.”
