Blue Bear Demonstrate RAPID Drone Inspection System at easyJet Innovation Day

In partnership with Output42, Blue Bear demonstrated their Remote Automated Plane Inspection & Dissemination (RAPID) drone system to the press and investors at easyJet's Gatwick Innovation day.

Blue Bear and Output42 partnering has formed a new joint venture, MRO Drone Ltd  (www.mrodrone.net). RAPID will introduce step changes in MRO data management and decision making, reduce Aircraft on Ground (AOG) time by up to 90% and introduce measurable efficiencies for aircraft operators. RAPIDs novelty is its use of automated drone technology to inspect, record and report damage on commercial aircraft with unparalleled efficiency and subsequently make the results of the inspection quickly available to all stakeholders. 

Gavin Goudie of MRO Drone comments: "the vision of MRO Drone is to produce innovative, integrated hardware and and software tools to allow Airlines and MROs to conduct engineering inspections faster, safer and more efficiently. The launch product is RAPID, a highly automated drone based automated aircraft damage inspection and integrated reporting system & working with easyJet has facilitated the development of the system to produce a tool that can now be put in the hands of the line maintenance teams".
