New aerospace group SkyX brings Autonomous Drones to Oil & Gas Industry

SkyX has developed ground-breaking Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to service the oil and gas industry. Developed to inspect pipelines for damage, as well as for mapping and security surveillance, SkyX’s SkyOne drones offer Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities, as well as autonomous flight and recharging. The oil and gas sector currently relies heavily on road vehicles and manned aircraft to detect any damage or threat. Both methods are more expensive, and less efficient than the SkyX solution. SkyOne allows for 24/7, unlimited data collection, provided in real-time and offers a far wider scope of information for the user. Offered on a service-leasing model, SkyOne allows oil & gas companies to access custom data and information without being burdened by any possible maintenance. The company is able to control either an individual UAV or an entire fleet and can monitor events through real-time video.
