Flylogix Limited - BvLOS

Project summary

Regular & sustainable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BvLOS) drone operations is a key enabler for reducing the cost and risk of offshore operations. There are a range of inspection and logistics applications that would be better conducted by unmanned aircraft operated from onshore. This project looks to address and overcome the challenges associated with operating UAVs beyond line of sight within UK controlled airspace. National Air Traffic Service (NATS) and Flylogix are working together in the offshore energy sector to develop a more sustainable concept of operations to enable an unmanned aircraft to reach any offshore facility at any time without the requirement for an individual aerial permission and temporary danger area.

Potential Industry Value

The potential value impact to industry based on one inspection per year across the UKCS operational assets would equate to a conservative cost saving in the region of £6.2M per annum.
