AquaSmartXL provides you with an additional pair of eyes on the water. Our aquatic drones help to observe and inspect assets as well as their surroundings, giving you all the needed information for maintenance, life span development, risk mitigation or insurance. 

The aquatic drones are remotely controlled and sail around and underneath infrastructure to capture visual object information. As a multi-sensor platform, the aquatic drone can be equipped with various types of sensors and imaging systems to provide our clients with the right information to solve their challenges. Our multipurpose platform offers among other optical, infrared and depth measurement. The data captured can be processed into a 3D model. Via the 3D model detailed information can be accessed more easily for inspection purposes.
