Volatus Aerospace Corp. (TSXV: VOL) (OTCQB: VLTTF) (“Volatus” or “the Company”) today announced a Collaboration Agreement with Accipiter Radar Technologies Inc. signed on 20 September, 2022 to facilitate and commercialize drone flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). This will allow Volatus to introduce clean energy drone solutions for a variety of aerial inspections in oil and gas pipeline, energy, railway, and arctic surveillance using remotely piloted aircraft (drones) operating beyond visual line of sight.
“Deconflicting drone operations with low-flying, crewed aircraft is an essential element for long range flight operations beyond visual line of sight. The use of Accipiter’s proven radar solutions will provide detect-and-alert / detect-and-avoid information needed to commercialize at scale,” said Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus Aerospace. “Teaming with Accipiter enables us to introduce innovative green solutions for our customers in our journey toward a carbon neutral future.”
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Volatus, furthering our mission of Targeting A Safer World®. The safe deployment of drones leveraging our well-established radar surveillance solutions will make a real difference both for industrial customers and our environment alike,” said Dr. Tim J. Nohara. President & CEO at Accipiter Radar Technologies Inc. “We are excited by the opportunities ahead.”
“Every 1,000 miles of pipeline or right of way we inspect using a drone in place of a helicopter or light airplane, reduces the carbon emissions being released into the atmosphere by as much as 2,400 pounds, according to 8 Billion Trees, a company dedicated to offsetting carbon emissions,” says Danielle Gagne, Corporate Communications and Chief Storyteller for Volatus. “Considering that there are approximately three-million miles of pipeline in North America that need to be inspected as often as once a week from the air to comply with regulation, the environmental impact is staggering. These initiatives are essential for our future.”
