The RAPID systems novelty is its use of automated drone technology to inspect record and report damage on commercial aircraft with unparalleled efficiency and subsequently make the results of the inspection quickly and easily available to all stakeholders.
RAPID utilises next generation drone based sensor packages providing detailed direct visual inspection data that is immediately geo-referenced to the aircraft structure. Inspections of such fidelity can currently only be carried out by use of mobile platforms and experienced engineers to manually measure and record the damage locations.
RAPID can increase workplace safety whilst maintaining a competitive edge.
Traditional survey methods are labour intensive, time consuming and often needs dedicated facilities and infrastructure to be conducted. RAPID uses no heavy or cumbersome equipment that may further damage the aircraft, or puts engineers into potentially hazardous situations.
