Robotic Skies and Carbonix are officially partnering to provide an international field support program for customers who operate Carbonix Volanti and Domani UAVs.

Carbonix UAV solutions are designed to deliver high-quality aerial images and data in real-time for various applications, including long-range surveillance and inspections of linear infrastructure in utilities, mining, and agriculture.

The capabilities of Carbonix UAVs are recognised in Australia and now internationally, with system deliveries slated this year to South Africa for operations across the African continent.

Robotic Skies serves the commercial drone industry with maintenance, inspection, and repair services through its network of more than 230 quality-controlled Service Centers across 50 countries.

Robotic Skies combines expertise in traditional and next-generation aircraft maintenance to offer professional turnkey field service programs that cater to the unique needs of the emerging drone market.

Carbonix CEO Stephen Pearce says, "As we continue to expand our business globally, having Robotic Skies as a trusted service partner means we can direct our energy towards developing and safely deploying our UAV technology.

"Our partnership with Robotic Skies positions us to offer the best post-purchase service and cultivate customer loyalty."

Robotic Skies founder and CEO Brad Hayden says, "We're thrilled to work with Carbonix and be their partner specialising in UAV maintenance and repair.

"We aim to make it easy for manufacturers of high-performance commercial UAVs like Carbonix to seamlessly incorporate Robotic Skies into existing workflows and efficiently build up their customer support infrastructure on a global scale."

Hayden, who serves on the FAA's Drone Advisory Committee, adds, "We recognise risk mitigation is more critical than ever for operators to meet safety and performance standards.

"We're meeting that head-on with a path to standardised turnkey maintenance solutions that protect I.P. and provide a safe and reliable customer experience throughout our global service network."

Robotic Skies recently announced its new headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. The facility was opened with the aim of advancing the company's service capabilities for customers and partners like Carbonix, including logistics and secure warehousing.

In addition, the location provides a testbed environment to optimise new drone maintenance solutions for deployment through the Robotic Skies Service Center network to better serve the growing Carbonix fleet.

Carbonix is a supplier of aerial data solutions, specialising in long-range and large area aerial surveillance and precision data capture.

Carbonix UAVs deliver mission success across a diverse range of industries with stability, precision control, and accuracy. The company's UAVs utilise technically advanced ISR, LiDAR and photogrammetry systems to deliver efficiency and accuracy of data.

Robotic Skies serves the commercial drone and advanced air mobility industry with professional maintenance, inspection, and repair services through its service centre network.

The company's turnkey field service programs are designed to be flexible, scalable, and meet regulatory maintenance requirements for complex commercial drone operations, such as autonomous package delivery and beyond-line-of-sight missions.
