ISAAC: add-to-drone navigation module
Intelligent Sensing And Automated Control, ISAAC. This is what we make, what we’re good at: the brain for a drone to make it capable of precision navigation and mapping around an aircraft, your aircraft. Our brain attached to the best commercial drone lets you perform the inspection fully automated with a 100% coverage of the area that needs to be inspected.
Due to our modular approach, we are not limited to one application sensor. For a visual inspection you want a high resolution RGB camera, for other inspections you might want to use another sensor. With the Mainblades Inspections solution, you have multiple choices.
Add-to-drone module ISAAC
We make ISAAC: the brain for a drone which, makes it capable of precision mapping and navigation around your aircraft. With our onboard software we can ensure an automated inspection with full coverage and provide an inspection report, integrated into your maintenance system.
Due to our modular approach, we are not limited to one single application sensor. For a visual inspection you can use a high resolution RGB camera, for other inspections you might want to use a different sensor. With the Mainblades Inspections’ solution, you have multiple choices for the payload.
Add-on for drones
Modular all-weather hardware
With our modular approach the drone inspection equipment can be customized for indoor and outdoor use, with heavy or light payload, based on different flight times – depending on inspection needs.
High-tech automated inspection tool
Fast, safe, flexible
Complete or partial aircraft inspection performed at any location, with guaranteed coverage of the required surface. The procedure can be done within the standard turnaround time of 2 hours for wide-body aircraft and 1 hour for narrow-body aircraft.
Sophisticated imaging system
Software for automated damage detection and recognition – with our customized human-in-the-loop data pipeline – allows for iterative improvement. Using machine learning, previous inspections and inspector feedback are leveraged to continuously elevate performance.
The on-board sensors and modules inside ISAAC and the algorithms running on it, enable fully autonomous object-based mapping, localization and navigation. The drone actually sees the object and knows its way around it, independent of GPS or other external signals.
Instant status report
ISAAC makes it possible to know the exact location of the found damage, which is essential for an inspection. The compiled report produced after the inspection includes the locations of anomalies and damages. Via our interface, the information is directly integrated in your maintenance program.
