Contactless UT RFID
Wireless and Non-Destructive (WAND) system, consists of two parts – a compact, battery-free sensor and a handheld probe. The sensor is entirely passive and can be permanently installed onto a structure.
The lightweight probe powers up the sensor by non-contact inductive coupling when it is brought nearby (even if the patch is under material). The sensor then sends out an ultrasonic wave into the structure and detects the received signal.
This is then transmitted back wirelessly to the probe where the signal is analysed. For our internal corrosion system, the analysed signal provides structural thickness.

Our UV Corona System works by using UV spectrum data capture sensors to allow for visualisation of effects, invisible to the naked eye.
When an electrical component suffers a degradation in insulation and subsequent exposure, the air around the fault becomes ionized. UV Corona can detect these faults and allow operators to act before catastrophic failure becomes imminent.
Mounting this system to our UAV delivery platform allows us to reach inaccessible sites, thus limiting extensive risk to personnel and also ensuring inspection on a more regular basis.
Our system can be deployed almost instantaneously to check for damage at key infrastructure and quickly help clients to best allocate resources.

The footage shows our UV Corona detection payload, integrated onto our custom built UAV Corona platform. Our system is then tasked with detecting failing Semi-Conductor componentry at height and with performing a detailed inspection of subsequent transmission line conductors. Note that when detected, non - visual UV discharge can be refined to point of source for specific component failure.
