Remotely Piloted Inspection Systems

Remotely Piloted Inspection Systems (RPIS), often referred to as drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have become increasingly popular in the field of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). RPIS involves the use of drones equipped with specialized sensors and cameras to inspect various structures, components, and assets without causing damage. This technique offers several benefits and can be applied to a wide range of industries.


  • Safety: RPIS eliminates the need for human inspectors to enter potentially dangerous or inaccessible areas, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Cost-Effective: It often requires fewer resources compared to traditional inspection methods, such as scaffolding or rope access, leading to cost savings.
  • Efficiency: Drones can quickly cover large areas and provide high-resolution data, reducing inspection time and improving efficiency.
  • Non-Destructive: RPIS allows for non-destructive testing, meaning it does not cause damage to the inspected structures or assets.
  • Access to Remote Locations: RPIS can access remote or challenging terrains, making it suitable for inspections of pipelines, power lines, and offshore platforms.
  • Real-Time Data: Data is collected in real-time, enabling immediate analysis and decision-making, which can be crucial in emergency situations.
  • Documentation: RPIS can generate detailed reports with visual and quantitative data, aiding in compliance and documentation requirements.


  • Oil and Gas: Inspection of pipelines, refineries, offshore platforms, and storage tanks.
  • Infrastructure: Inspection of bridges, dams, highways, and tunnels.
  • Power Generation: Inspection of power lines, wind turbines, and solar farms.
  • Construction: Monitoring construction sites, assessing structural integrity, and conducting surveys.
  • Mining: Surveying and inspecting mine sites and equipment.
