Robotica in Maintenance Strategies (RIMS) has launched a new inspection service for enclosed spaces using Elios drone technology, targeted at the maritime and offshore industries.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Elios unit, created by RIMS partner Flyability, is a drone within a protective cage, which the company says is ideally suited to enter enclosed spaces and carry out in depth inspections.

Working with additional partners Rotterdam Offshore Group and Rolldock, and under Class supervision, tests of the technology have already been carried out on board the vessel Rolldock Sky to check whether the controls and data transfer would operate as required within a ballast tank and duct keel.

Following the successful completion of the tests RIMS says it will now be offering inspection services to the maritime sector using the new technology.{/mprestriction}
