Remote GeoSystems Conducts BVLOS Geospatial Video Pipeline Inspection in China
Remote GeoSystems, Inc., a global provider of immersive geospatial video, photo and data recorders and reporting software for survey and inspection, and Xi’an ARTEL Technology, Inc., Chinas leading developer/operator of beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) inspection UAVs, are pleased to announce the successful deployment of complementary geospatial data systems for long distance day and night drone pipeline patrol operations.

In May 2019, Remote GeoSystems traveled to China to evaluate capabilities and provide business development support for reseller Xian ARTELs use of the geoDVR Mini GPS video recorders on BVLOS drones and the development of interactive client deliverables using the LineVision™ geospatial video inspection and reporting software suite.

“We knew team at Xian ARTEL had the opportunity and was making the investment to become a successful value-added Remote Geo reseller in China, but we really did not know what to expect when we first got there.” says Remote GeoSystems managing director, Jeff Dahlke, However what we saw was nothing short of amazing and inspiring. Here was a group of young engineers and a CEO leading the way in BVLOS drone operations and they flew their drone and our geoDVR Mini with a EO/IR gimbal at night for over 14 kilometers on that first observation flight.

Xian ARTEL first approached Remote GeoSystems in the spring of 2018 after learning about the companys success with geoDVRs and LineVision with helicopters for pipeline leak detection and patrol. However the gas-powered ARTEL Patrol UAV required the geoDVR technology to be smaller, lighter and able to operate autonomously.

What was to become the first geoDVR Mini prototype was commissioned, built and shipped in early fall of 2018 and Xian ARTEL put the geoDVR GPS video recording system to work immediately to geotag video for their existing contract with one of Chinas leading petroleum corporations as well as for proof-of-concept testing for maritime security.

Remote Geo was willing to listen to us and visit us and our clients in China, and work with our company on a value-added reseller level. says Gao Yong, CEO of Xian ARTEL, That gives us a competitive advantage having a proper, first-hand and trusting relationship with the leading American technology company in geospatial pipeline patrol and video mapping.
