Azur Drones, AVNIR Energy integrate to develop automated drones for radiation detection.
by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
Azur Drones, a world leader in autonomous surveillance and inspection drones, is collaborating with AVNIR Energy, a specialist in engineering in the nuclear energy sector, to develop the first ever autonomous aerial solution for detecting radioactivity. The solution is designed for the environmental monitoring of nuclear sites, as well as ensuring the safety of these sites, both in France and abroad.
The collaboration sees the integration of a radioactivity sensor into Azur Drones’ Skeyetech drone-in-a-box solution. Skeyetech, a resident autonomous drone capable of carrying out its missions without a remote pilot, is the first drone system to be approved in Europe for Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) flights. Skeyetech now embarks AVNIR Energy’s Ionised Zone Inspection Device (DIZI), resulting in the first autonomous vector…
