Honeywell has launched its first commercial
unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) inspection service.
The Honeywell InView inspection service is
designed to help industrial customers improve critical structure
inspections while helping increase employees’ safety from many of
the risks associated with these often-dangerous working
combines the proven performance of the Intel Falcon 8+ UAV system
and Honeywell’s expertise, with data-driven software customized to the needs of
the utility, energy, infrastructure, and oil and gas industries.
The Honeywell InView inspection service package — which includes
the components of the UAV, pilot app and customizable web portal —
helps customers organize and create standards around their routine
and crisis-response inspections.
For example, the Honeywell InView
inspection service can help utility customers create routine
inspections of transmission and distribution systems that generate
data that can be stored, searched and accessed from in the office
and out in the field on demand.
“This collaboration combines Intel’s advanced
commercial Intel Falcon 8+ UAV system with Honeywell’s
leadership in aerospace safety and connectivity to deliver
solutions that deliver reliable, efficient and actionable
information to utility and industrial customers,” said Carl
Esposito, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace.
“Through our extensive industrial experience, our customers will
also gain access to Honeywell’s customized software and data
solutions that will help them log, analyze, and eventually predict
or prevent outages and structural failures, while protecting the
men and women called upon to complete these crucial but high-risk
Anil Nanduri, GM of Intel’s UAV business group,
said, “We are incredibly pleased to collaborate with Honeywell on
this exciting new business opportunity. The safety, flight
precision and robust performance of the Intel Falcon 8+ system are
a perfect fit for the Honeywell InView inspection service and will
allow its customers to inspect, collect and analyze valuable data
in a whole new way.”
