Ubisense Group is partnering with MRO Drone, to offer the world’s first ‘Smart Hangar’ solution. With Smart Hangar, drone-based aircraft damage inspection reduces aircraft on ground (AOG) time by up to 90 per cent and introduces measurable efficiencies across fleet maintenance
Smart Hangar combines MRO Drone’s Remote Automated Plane Inspection and Dissemination (RAPID) drone, which Easyjet has successfully trialed and is now considering implementing at its European bases, Ubisense’s Enterprise Location Platform SmartSpace for tooling, asset and compliance management and Dimension4, Ubisense’s precision real-time location system. It has been Developed for operations, compliance and quality teams.
Ubisense’s technology is used by nine of the top 10 global automobile manufacturers as well as leading aerospace manufacturers such as Lockheed Martin and Airbus.
“Location is a key enabler for new solutions coming to market in the MRO space and SmartSpace’s ability to work with other systems makes it the perfect software platform for many new technologies,” said Richard Petti, CEO of Ubisense. “SmartSpace enables OEMs and MROs to close a fundamental data-gap between their production systems and the real-world physical activities that drive their product and value creation through the creation of digital twins.”
“Partnering with Ubisense both compliments and enhances our respective technologies and creates world class next generation engineering capability for airlines and MRO,” said Gavin Goudie, CEO of MRO Drone.
