It has, once again, been an incredibly busy time for the SkyX Team.
In concert with the leading innovation and manufacturing firm CMP Automation, we recently completed the manufacture and deployment of our first full-scale xStation. It was a massive project, and it marks a true evolution in the development of SkyX as a leading unmanned aerial company for the monitoring of long-range infrastructure (particularly the oil and gas sectors).
The xStation, you might recall, is one of the key components of the integrated SkyX system. By combining our super-efficient SkyOne VTOL with remote xStations, our Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is able to land and charge far from home base – then keep on going. Our SkyX OS custom operating system offers an at-a-glance progress report on missions, with the ability to change course and waypoints remotely.
When SkyX lands for a recharge and systems check, the canopied roof closes to offer safe harbour from the elements.
The xStation has been built to demanding specifications, with the ability to remain in the field with an anticipated lifespan of 10 years.
For SkyX CEO and Founder Didi Horn, the successful deployment of the xStation marks a major milestone – and a collective accomplishment for the entire SkyX team.
And while it’s one thing to see some nice still photos of the xStation, it’s quite something else to see it in action. Here’s the real deal:
This is the beginning of something very big. We’ll keep you posted.
