ULC Robotics, Inc. Fulfills FAA Compliance Standards to Perform Inspections and Surveys for the Energy and Utility Industries with Commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 30, 2016– ULC Robotics, Inc. (ULC), a leading robotics, energy services, and research and development company focused on the energy and utility industries, is proud to announce it has been granted the Section 333 Exemption from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The exemption provides ULC with a general Certificate of Authorization to operate unmanned aerial systems (UAS) under 400 feet throughout the United States.

“Receiving the FAA Section 333 Exemption is an exciting development for our company and another cutting-edge innovative process we can deploy to benefit our clients and their customers,” said Gregory Penza, president and CEO of ULC Robotics. “ULC’s unmanned aerial inspection program is backed by our research and development and field operations teams, as well as a team of expert UAS consultants who will integrate professional-grade UAS with carefully selected sensors to ensure the highest quality inspections.”

ULC will utilize UAS to aid in the unmanned aerial inspection and surveys of difficult-to-access structures, monitor for gas leaks in distribution or transmission pipelines, inspect buildings and act as an emergency response assessment tool.

“Unmanned aerial systems offer a myriad of uses that utility industries and energy businesses can fully benefit from,” said Aubrey Anderson, head of the UAS program for ULC. “Using unmanned aerial inspections to monitor gas pipelines or electrical lines allows utilities to gather critical data, while reducing costs and keeping workers safe by eliminating the need to climb heights or navigate through hazardous terrain.”

Since September 2014, the FAA has issued more than 4,000 Section 333 Exemptions to businesses across the US. ULC is excited to be at the forefront of safely executing UAS operations and to bring innovative technology to the utility industry.

ULC plans to work with gas and electric utility customers and start demonstrations in June. In addition to electric and utility inspections, ULC’s UAS team has expressed their ability to expand UAS operations to other industries including construction, agriculture and commercial real estate.
