STABLE is a developer of innovative launch and landing stabilized platforms for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and drones.
Utilizing high-precision sensors to characterize movements in the environment, our drone platforms are automatically adjusted by computer-controlled electrical actuators, compensating for movements of up to 30 degrees and eliminating the effects of roll, pitch and sideway forces.
Innovative Gyro-Stabilized Platforms
Our gyro-stabilized pads provide a perfectly horizontal launch and landing surface for drones operating in highly demanding and dynamic maritime and offshore environments, and also allow unmanned aircraft to land on moving ground vehicles.
Elimination of platform movement is also essential for the successful calibration of drone payloads and sensors, such as LiDAR, radar and other imaging systems, prior to take-off.
Our stabilized UAV landing pad technology can be adapted to standard single or double Euro Pallet sizes. The base of the system can be securely strapped to the deck of a vessel, and a weather-protective curtain protects the system’s electronics and mechanical components from rain and sea spray.
Containerized Drone Landing Platform & Hangar
We have integrated our stabilized drone launch pad technology into a containerized hangar designed for UAV-based inspection and servicing of offshore wind farms, oil rigs, tidal energy installations and other facilities.
Take-off, landing and sensor calibration can all be highly challenging under the dynamic conditions caused by waves and harsh weather. Our stabilized platform technology ensures that drones always have a perfectly horizontal platform to operate from, resulting in accurate, efficient take-off and landing.
In addition, the containerized enclosure also provides a convenient storage and maintenance space for the drone, protecting it from the elements when not in use.
Our UAV and drone take-off and landing pads provide a wide variety of additional benefits for offshore applications:
Reduces reliance on manned helicopters and offshore supply vessels, thus cutting costs and well as emissions
Reduces the risk of accidents and injury to personnel
Eliminates delays caused by harsh weather, thus in turn reducing downtime and making operations more efficient
Allows both drone operators and energy providers to maximise the economic benefits of drone-based delivery, inspection and maintenance, improving the offshore and green energy sectors all round
The containerized system is currently being utilized in a joint project between Griff Aviation, ship operator Olympic Subsea and NORCE (Norwegian Research Centre)/UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
