SkyX launches oil and gas UAS services

11th April 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SkyX will target the oil and gas industry with its newly launched UAS inspection services in Canada, the company announced on 7 April.

The company's SkyOne UAS have been developed to carry out oil and gas pipeline inspections, including detecting leaks, vandalism and vegetation encroachment; as well as mapping and security surveillance.

The VTOL UAS are capable of autonomous flight, and have an endurance of 70 minutes at 150km/h. The system is capable of recharging itself in the field, rather than needing to return to base at the end of its charge. Instead, it flies to the nearest available xStation, where it recharges in a weather-shielded dome before continuing its mission

SkyX will offer its UAS on a service-leasing model, providing its customers with data and information without the associated maintenance burden. Customers can choose between an individual UAS or an entire fleet and can monitor events through real-time video.
