Commercial airliners require regular maintenance to conduct visual and structural tests and to determine whether any damage was incurred during flight. Typical maintenance plans call for inspections every 200 hours of flight and full maintenance once every year. In addition, airplanes require a subset of the regular inspection schedule after incidents like hard landings or lightning strikes. Airlines tend to spend on average 600 hours per inspection - the vast majority on manual tasks that are hard to automate.
Luftronix utilizes its Fused Flow™ navigation to allow in-hangar and outdoors airplane inspections and record the coordinates of any potential damage.
Agriculture has been one of the most enthusiastic early adopters of UAV technology for crop surveillance and analysis. Estimates of yield improvements vary between 30% and 100% depending on type of crops, climate conditions, and the nature of threats from pests and weeds.
Luftronix drones fly missions of up to one hour before having to recharge. Where the regulatory environment allows it, Luftronix drones fly their missions autonomously, including takeoff and landing.
Most countries organize border security with frequent manual patrols by border police or the military. However, given the vast areas in question, such measures can be easily defeated by a dedicated opponent. Rather than increasing the frequency of patrols, which comes at a substantial cost, aerial surveillance using unmanned vehicles can be conducted at substantially lower cost and higher efficiency.
Luftronix offers a solution for patrolling the borders with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The use of unmanned vehicles for border surveillance provides the mechanism to gather intelligence across large areas quickly and repeatedly without the requirement of manual ground travel across every section of territory.
