Cyberhawk use cutting-edge Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) technology, to work with leading companies in the Oil & Gas and Energy industries, carrying out remote visual inspections of their assets. Using cutting-edge UAV technology, this delivers safe, versatile and highly efficient inspections and surveys, utilising High Definition video equipment, high resolution still cameras, and thermo graphic and thermal imaging sensors.

Interface - The knowledge connection for business, introduced Cyberhawk to The UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UKATC), in Edinburgh, to carry out a feasibility study in order to develop a Smart Imaging System that will improve image quality within the constraints offered by the remote-controlled vehicle, and will revolutionise the way inspections are carried out.

Benefits: The firm currently uses a digital off-the-shelf camera, however the benefits from this collaboration will ensure they develop an improved optical system that will deliver higher image quality whilst also addressing the payload of the vehicle to reduce the effects shock and vibration.

Cyberhawk, supported in 2011 by Interface, is a producer of unmanned helicopters that can carry out inspections of industrial sites remotely and has attracted investment of £1.25m. Cyberhawk's Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicles (ROAV) are used to conduct close visual and thermal inspections of industrial assets such as flares, utility transmission towers and wind turbines. Thanks to Interface’s support Cyberhawk were able to dramatically improve the quality of the inspection images helping them to secure more sales and grow their business.

Cyberhawk chief executive Craig Roberts said: "The new round of investment will enable Cyberhawk to invest in the people, technology and product development required to consolidate our leading position in the market and drive global growth.
