ABS publishes guidance on remote inspection technologies

ABS has published guidance notes on the Use of Remote Inspection Technologies, detailing best practices for the use of drones on class surveys and non-class inspections.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The guidance notes cover pilot-operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles and Robotic Crawlers, collectively known as Remote Inspection Technologies (RITs).

The guidance notes were developed following extensive marine and offshore trials and testing. They cover equipment specification, data management, associated management systems, recommended standards for service providers, training requirements and potential operational limitations of RITs.

“The use of RITs can reduce risk for surveyors and inspectors by lessening the need to access potentially hazardous locations at height, or other hazardous inspection areas. This guidance facilitates safer, more effective and efficient, use of these technologies,” said John McDonald ABS senior vice president, Western Hemisphere Operations. “The guidance notes, which build on our guidance notes on Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, demonstrate our commitment to continually address new technologies that support safer and less intrusive surveys.”

Using digital technology and high definition cameras, ABS will collect data and provide trends using the new RITs.{/mprestriction}
