Honeywell launches UAS inspection service
Honeywell has launched its first commercial UAS inspection service under a collaboration with Intel, the company announced on 6 September.
The InView inspection service will support utility, energy and oil and gas industries to organise and standardise the way they conduct routine and emergency response critical infrastructure inspections.
The service package includes Intel’s Falcon 8+ VTOL UAS equipped with sensors, along with a pilot app and a customisable web portal.
The InView inspection service has been designed to allow users to create routine inspections for transmission and distribution systems that generate data that can be stored, searched and accessed from within the office and out in the field on demand.
Carl Esposito, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace, said: ‘This collaboration combines Intel's advanced commercial Intel Falcon 8+ UAV system with Honeywell's leadership in aerospace safety and connectivity to deliver solutions that deliver reliable, efficient and actionable information to utility and industrial customers.’
