Sky-Futures and Flyability launch a fully integrated drone-based inspection software-hardware solution
[October 2016] Sky-Futures and Flyability have partnered up to bring to market a fully integrated solution for drone-based industrial inspection. The Flyability Elios is the groundbreaking collision-tolerant drone allowing access to complex and confined spaces where manned entry is not possible or desirable. Expanse is the world leading software for end-to-end management of drone-based industrial inspection data.
Flying beyond line of sight in complex geometries requires sophisticated organization and benefits greatly from intuitive relay of information discovered. Flyability and Sky-Futures now provide clients with the Elios drone and Expanse software for a complete solution for data capture, processing and distribution to all stakeholders.
Sky-Futures has been a provider of drone-based inspection services across industries for over half a decade; the launch of the Expanse-Elios package is the latest response to the needs of asset integrity management across industries.
James Harrison, CEO and co-founder of Sky-Futures, said: “We’re excited to be continuing and deepening our relationship with Flyability. Through continued joint innovation we are focused on providing both our customers the best solution for industrial inspection in confined spaces. This now extends from data collection to include data presentation and analysis through our Expanse software. ”
“As an early adopter of our technology, Sky-Futures has been a long term partner and supporter of Elios. Through this bundle package, we intend to provide our customers with the greatest flexibility and efficiency in the way they can disseminate and post-process data gathered with Elios” says Patrick Thévoz, CEO and Co-Founder of Flyability. “The launch of Expanse is a step in this direction and we are looking forward to further assist asset owners and inspection companies reducing costs and risks in their operations.”
