The Smart Bee™ is a patented dry-film thickness (DFT) measurement precision controlled aerial robotic system (drone) for defense and industrial applications.  This platform can conduct non-destructive paint thickness measurements on ferrous substrates pursuant to SSPC-PA 2, producing over 100 measurements per hour without the need for cranes, scaffolding or rope work. The Smart Bee can also perform surface profile testing pursuant to SSPC-SP standards.


The Smart Bee was recently recognized as Innovation of the Year by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).
