The agreement brings state of the art inspection drone technology to industrial asset owners in the UAE
ASIO challenges the industry standard for flight time thanks to its innovative propulsion system that combines the simplicity of multi-rotors with the aerodynamic efficiency of helicopters. The result is an energy efficient, collision tolerant drone with twice the flight time of similar drones on the market and significantly less noise. It allows customers to quickly and safely inspect hazardous, confined spaces, typically in the infrastructure, energy, and oil and gas industries.
“We are excited to bring the ASIO solution to the UAE market and introduce it to our customers,” says Suneesh KS – SIGMA Enterprises Division Sales Manager. “This technology offers a great advantage by simplifying the inspection process using a compact drone, saving time and reducing the risk of human error. We are also confident that ASIO’s superior flight time will help to streamline and reduce the cost of the entire inspection project.”
Samir Bouabdallah, Co-Founder & CEO of Flybotix said: “The UAE and the GCC countries are key regions for us. Their vast infrastructure and construction industries include various industrial assets that require comprehensive and potentially hazardous inspections. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our new technology in the UAE alongside training and product maintenance through our new partner SIGMA Enterprises.”
Flybotix is Mr. Bouabdallah’s second venture in the drone industry, having co-founded Skybotix which was acquired by GoPro. ASIO is the product of Swiss engineering and is manufactured in Switzerland using components from recognized brands such as maxon and Solvay. The product gets its name from the family of Asio owls who are characterized by their excellent night vision and large wing-span, much like the ASIO drone and its long propellers.
