Luftronix was founded in 2016 to commercialize industrial inspections via fully autonomous high-precision drones. Luftronix drones are autonomously executing flight plans ("scan plans") both indoors and outdoors with unmatched precision and resilience. By drastically reducing the need to create access for humans, Luftronix inspection technology is able to save at least half the time and cost of an inspection while at the same time increasing workplace safety for engineers working in maintenance, repair and overhaul.
