Modi’in, Israel, March 14, 2022 – Percepto, pioneering autonomous inspection by industrial robotics, today extended its appreciation for Thursday’s landmark report by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC). The report release moves the needle towards creating a new law for standardizing and streamlining safe BVLOS flights. As a member of the ARC, Percepto is very excited to see this important stage completed, which will help increase the adoption of drones within many industries and applications in the U.S.
“The FAA’s report represents a huge industry turning point in the journey towards a new rule for BVLOS flights, and we highly commend them for this,” said Percepto VP Policy and Government Affairs, Neta Gliksman. “Percepto undertook an active role in the committee as we know the significant benefits the remote operations of drones will bring to critical infrastructure sites, from enabling swifter incident response to vastly accelerating efficiency across inspections and operations, which will be especially welcomed in the current climate.”
Percepto created Autonomous Inspection and Monitoring (AIM), a field-proven software solution for industrial sites that employs drones and robots to automate inspections, emergency response and security.
