HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Valmie Resources Inc.'s (VMRI) joint venture partner -- AeroLift eXpress -- presented its groundbreaking drone-based delivery platform to two U.S. offshore operations companies. The responses from the companies were positive and AeroLift has begun making preparations for a live demonstration.
Valmie debuted AeroLift eXpress last month at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.
“We are very optimistic following our presentation to twenty top officials of a marine operations services and engineering company,” said James Stafford, AeroLift eXpress CEO and Founder. “AeroLift has now begun the process of obtaining Federal Aviation Administration permission to hold a live demonstration at a safe local site for these and several other companies.”
The agendas of the two presentations included descriptions of AeroLift’s military grade drone technology and how it offers significant advantages over marine, helicopter, and existing unmanned systems.
“Reducing cost, risk, and delays are top of mind for these executives and for every project manager in the energy sector,” said Gerald B. Hammack, President and CEO of Valmie Resources. “We look forward to demonstrating how AeroLift can safely access some of the most remote locations on the globe.”
AeroLift, operated by former US military pilots, delivers payloads up to 14 pounds within an operating radius of 250 miles. Stafford says the company has plans to increase the payload size to as much as 80 pounds in subsequent development phases.
