Minnesota-based Sensurion Aerospace has selected Robotic Skies as the global field maintenance provider for its unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) products. As part of the agreement, the two companies will collaborate to create a customized maintenance program for the Sensurion line of Federal Aviation Administration-certified UAS.
From more than 100 field service centers around the globe, Robotic Skies will provide customer service, spares and technical support, including the implementation of a comprehensive warranty program.
Brad Hayden, president and CEO of Robotic Skies, says, “We are thrilled to be working with Sensurion to support their customers worldwide.”
“This partnership underscores our commitment to our global customer community, by providing immediate technical support for users who depend on MAGPIE for their day-to-day missions,” says Sensurion CEO Captain Joe Burns. “We are convinced that Robotic Skies’ service center network will broaden our reach, enhance accessibility for our customers and strengthen Sensurion’s service-delivery model.”
The MAGPIE, Sensurion Aerospace’s small, fixed-wing UAS, is currently in operation for a variety of aerial sensor applications, such as oil and gas exploration, law enforcement, UAS training, border patrol, and precision agriculture. In December 2014, Sensurion notes, the MAGPIE received a special airworthiness certificate for the MAGPIE from the FAA.
