US firm Constellation Clearsight has signed a long-term agreement with Switzerland based Voliro AG which will see the former bring the latter’s advanced airborne robots for critical infrastructure inspection and maintenance to the US utilities market.
Clearsight will offer its customers the Voliro T flying robot to further advance its inspection offerings. The Voliro T employs six degrees of freedom to fly steadily in the air and to touch objects at any angle. The 360-degree drone will enable Clearsight to go further with Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and provide Ultrasonic Testing (UT) and Dry-Film Thickness (DFT) measurements to its customers, it said.
“Voliro’s highly-maneuverable, advanced aerial inspection platform combined with Clearsight’s experienced experts will provide customers with actionable insights about the structural integrity of their equipment without risking the safety of a human inspector,” said Jimmy Carter, General Manager, Constellation Clearsight.
Clearsight will assist Voliro in further developing its application base, collaborate on market events, and provide direct market feedback on future releases.
“Constellation Clearsight presents us with an incredible opportunity – their qualified experts have the knowledge, resources and physical assets to offer solutions to plant owners to perform inspections faster and safer than before,” said Mina Kamel, CEO, Voliro.
