Skycatch for Energy

  1. 1. Industrial Drones for Energy
  2. 2. Our Vision SKYCATCH IS FOCUSED ON HELPING COMPANIES SCALE THE USE OF AUTONOMOUS FLYING ROBOTS FOR REMOTE SURVEILLANCE AND LOGISTICS.
  3. 3. Our Focus Making the use of drones •  easy for operators with no prior experience •  scalable to cover large remote areas •  suitable for harsh environments •  low maintenance & high availability •  fully accessible via mobile interfaces & web
  4. 4. The Problem •  •  •  •  Sites are becoming more remote and dangerous, the rise of the ROC means that remote surveillance is becoming mission critical Fixed cameras in a world of remote pipelines, wind/solar farms, transmission lines, and plants are becoming prohibitively expensive Making these feeds accessible 24/7 or providing mobile access to security video feeds = difficult and expensive Most drones are toys with limited range and are hard to pilot
  5. 5. Our Solution Ruggedized drones flying missions autonomously and gathering data Instant data acquisition & analysis Base stations for 24/7 power
  6. 6. The System Three main components: - The Drone and Payload - The Software - The Base Station
  7. 7. The Drone (Flying Robot) •  •  •  •  •  •  •  •  •  Quadcopters Stable autonomous flight Range of up to 25 miles / 30 kilometres Ruggedized to IP65 Internet connected Smartphone CPUs 15 satellite GPS lock Barometric and sonar sensors Lightweight - Size of a frying pan
  8. 8. Payload Sensor payload can be up to 1 kilo including: Smart cameras (video and stills) LiDAR Multispectral and thermal sensors for non-visual bands Physical payloads (e.g., packages) •  •  •  • 
  9. 9. The Software •  •  •  •  Secure logins Image and video view Waypoint entry via Google Earth interface Accessible on web, Android, and iPhone
  10. 10. Uses in Mining •  •  •  •  •  Mobile Surveillance across site for mobile machinery, operations, blasting, geology & security Critical hazard response – shot firing, injury, fire Structure management and inspection Remote operations management Surveying
  11. 11. Uses in Oil & Gas •  •  •  •  Monitor remote pipelines for leaks and vandalism Evaluate operations on large oil fields Inspect “hard to reach” places such as offshore rigs more easily Monitor staff and contractors
  12. 12. Uses in Solar •  •  •  •  Check temperature of panels to ensure optimum throughput Monitor status of build outs Check on environmental impact during build out Conduct automated health and safety checks
  13. 13. Uses in Power •  •  •  Check conditions of lines to prevent fire and safety issues Inspect issues live without risking worker safety Monitor wildlife along lines
  14. 14. Uses in Wind Energy •  •  •  •  Keep birds away from turbines Check turbine status without stopping production Check on environmental impact during build out Ad hoc checks over water and land
  15. 15. The Base Station •  •  •  •  •  •  Rugged (IP65) Solar or DC power Wind sensors Up to 12 batteries Automated battery swap (24/7) Protects the drone when not in use
  16. 16. Safety and Regulation Safety in designing every part of our system. •  •  Our inflight autopilot software is thoroughly tested The base station and drone maintain connection; drone can be called back if any issues or auto land. •  Global failsafes including parachutes Regulations •  •  FAA, CASA and others working on new regulations. Currently must fly lower than 122 metres, 400 feet.
  17. 17. We have the team OUR BACKGROUNDS HARVARD/MIT, TESLA, JPL, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK AND THE US NAVY
  18. 18. Interested? •  •  •  Demos and drone available in late 2013 early 2014 Discounts for development partners More at www.skycatch.com
