MODI'IN, Israel - Percepto recently announced that it has been granted operational approval to fly Percepto autonomous drones beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) at a site in Australia. The waiver, granted by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), will allow completely remote inspection of the facility, laying the groundwork for many similar waivers for Percepto customers nationally.
The achievement adds value in the Australian market where many facilities are in remote locations. As a result, companies are increasingly introducing remote operations to manage, monitor and secure their sites. The approval will also enable high risk sites such as mines and refineries to better manage safety and environmental risks, while increasing productivity and reducing downtime.
Percepto was recently invited to join the FAA BVLOS Aviation Rulemaking Committee and has been included among the first group of the “Gold standard” FAA’s Type Certification (TC) process.
