The partnership will enhance American Robotics' autonomous drone platform with sensors to detect methane leaks
WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 4, 2022 / Ondas Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:ONDS) ("Ondas" or the "Company"), a leading provider of private wireless data, drone, and automated data solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. and American Robotics, Inc. ("American Robotics" or "AR"), today announced American Robotics' strategic technology partnership with Infrared Cameras Inc. (ICI), a developer of thermal cameras and infrared systems. Combined with ICI's optical gas imaging (OGI) and thermal sensors, American Robotics' autonomous Scout System drone will be equipped with the technology needed to automate inspection of oil and gas assets and identification of methane leaks.
"American Robotics continues to see some of the oil and gas industry's largest companies focus on integrating autonomous drones into their operations to conduct regular site inspections and ensure employee safety," said Reese Mozer, co-founder and CEO of American Robotics. "Through our strategic technology partnership with ICI, we continue to expand our product offerings with key features tailor made for the oil and gas industry, enabling customers to automate inspections of critical assets such as tanks, pipes and pumps. Importantly, the solutions being developed in connection with our ICI partnership are designed to meet specific customer requests."
ICI's OGI and thermal sensors will enable the Scout System to autonomously collect critical data and identify anomalies such as methane leaks and equipment and electrical hotspots. Additionally, this new technology will enable customers to reduce operational expenses, minimize reputational risk and safeguard employees and the environment. Incorporating ICI's OGI and thermal sensors further enhances American Robotics' oil and gas solution, deepening the Company's competitive differentiation within the autonomous drone-in-a-box (DIB) market.
"We are excited to partner with American Robotics to bring innovative solutions to the oil and gas industry," said Gary Strahan, Founder and CEO of Infrared Cameras Inc. "We believe that our state-of-the-art software and multi-sensor payloads combined with American Robotics' leading drone solution, will greatly benefit clients across the oil and gas industry."
By leveraging ICI's thermal and optical gas imaging sensors, American Robotics is further establishing itself as the market-leading drone-in-a-box solution for the oil and gas market segment. Through its partnership with ICI, American Robotics believes that it has positioned itself for significant revenue growth in the oil and gas industry where the market for drone solutions is estimated to be $23.9 billion by 2027. The target release for this combined technology is 2023. To learn more about American Robotics and its Scout System drone, click here.
