Luftronix To Demonstrate Autonomous Aircraft Inspection Using Centimeter-Level Precision Navigation at Humanitarian “Do Tank”

CAPE MAY, NJ: Luftronix, maker of precision-navigation technology for drones, will demonstrate an autonomous aircraft inspection at the Drones in Disaster “Do Tank”, hosted by the Field Innovation Team (FIT) on June 22 and 23.

A vintage F-14 jet, on display at the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum (http://www.usnasw.org), will be used for the demonstration. A Luftronix drone will perform a Maintenance/Repair/Overhaul (MRO) inspection of the aircraft, illustrating how inspectors may identify areas needing maintenance or repair without having to leave the safety of the ground. Luftronix’s precision navigation with centimeter-level positioning allows inspectors to create detailed reports and eliminate many of the manual tasks involved in a traditional inspection. Automating an inspection significantly reduces the time out-of-service for an airline.

“Our technology goes beyond aircraft inspection,” says Denise Spell, co-founder of the company. “Drones are increasingly being utilized in search and rescue missions after disasters. Luftronix technology allows drones to fly through tunnels, over areas of collapse, through GPS-denied environments, and still be able to find those in need of rescue, and drop critical supplies until help can arrive.”

Luftronix has partnered with FIT (http://fieldinnovationteam.org), The New Jersey Innovation Institute (www.njii.com), and The United Nations (http://www.un.org) to showcase drone innovation and use in disaster and humanitarian relief. The “Do Tank” is a design workshop that will feature the latest drone technology. In addition to Luftronix’s in-hangar aircraft inspection, events will include a ship-to-shore delivery of blood samples from drone delivery company Flirtey (http://flirtey.com), and a demonstration of of amphibious drones by Rutgers University (http://www.rutgers.edu). The event is supported by Cape May County (http://capemaycountynj.gov) and Atlantic Cape Community College (http://www.atlantic.edu).

Luftronix is a joint venture founded in 2015 by Roman Pavlyuk, Klaus Sonnenleiter, Denise Spell and ELEKS Corp. They represent a team with decades of experience in the field of aerospace, avionics, software, data collection, and data management. The Luftronix Fused Flow™ precision navigation system has applications for aerospace, agriculture, entertainment, and the military.
