Curtiss-Wright’s Nuclear Division (Curtiss-Wright) and Cyberhawk Inc, a subsidiary of Cyberhawk Ltd, announced today that they have signed an agreement to provide visual asset management using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and software to the North American nuclear power market. As part of the agreement, Curtiss-Wright will market and deliver Cyberhawk’s services to customers that require visual inspections of their critical assets.
As an international engineering inspection and survey specialist and world leader in end-to-end visual data management, Cyberhawk digitalizes clients’ assets and helps them make informed decisions using drones and software. Their services include site visualization and surveying; close visual and thermal inspections; and detailed digital inspection reports via their cloud-based visual asset management software, iHawk.
Cyberhawk has direct experience in the nuclear market having conducted inspections at several North American sites including the Cook Nuclear Plant. Their teams completed ASME code-compliant inspections using drones, providing significant cost savings while drastically reducing safety risks and interruptions to operations. The UAS can be utilized inside and outside of containment structures, buildings, cooling towers, tanks, security perimeters, and other important assets requiring periodic inspection.
Commenting on the new agreement, Brian Dassatti, General Manager of Curtiss-Wright’s Outage and Fuel Management Solutions group, stated, “This agreement is an important step in the achievement of our strategic plan to transform plant processes by increasing our portfolio of products and services through partner relationships and while continuing to deliver value to our customers. We are extremely excited to enter the nuclear market with a UAS service offering to advance our customers’ inspection needs.”
Commenting for Cyberhawk, Chris Fleming, Chief Executive Officer, said, “The agreement with Curtiss-Wright is another great achievement for the Cyberhawk brand and continues our on-going success within the nuclear market. We strive to lead the global market in end-to-end visual data management and will provide the same high-quality service for Curtiss-Wright as we do across our estate of world-class customers.”
