Flyability is leading drone inspections in confined spaces, providing robotic solutions to various industries

Drone technology is steadily being incorporated as a sustainable practice for asset managers in the energy industries. Nonetheless, current solutions are unable to operate close to structures or in contact with operators, restricting effective inspection in complex environments.

While conventional methods are still required for maintenance, preliminary inspection can be performed at lower cost, risk, and infrastructure downtime.

Flyability aims at becoming the leading technology provider in exploration and inspection of confined spaces and complex environments.

The industries we serve can be found below with relevant use cases on Flyability’s inspection portfolio.
