Rapid Imaging Software Announces Strategic Partnership with Bird's Eye Solutions

Rapid Imaging Software will benefit from Bird's Eye owners experience with unmanned systems.

Albuquerque, NM May 05, 2015


Rapid Imaging Software, Inc. announced a strategic partnership today with Bird's Eye Solutions. Bird's Eye Solutions based in Middleton Wisconsin, offers film and development services throughout the US. Bird's Eye Solutions recently coordinated an SUAS flight within 5 miles of an airport tower.

Rapid Imaging Software is in development on several products for the commercial drone/SUAS market and will be using Bird's Eye Solutions for product development on augmented reality and obstacle management systems.

Mike Abernathy of Rapid Imaging Software notes, "We are working on several products will have a big impact in a variety of fields; firefighting, law enforcement, power line and pipeline management. We will be able to get these products to market more quickly through this partnership."

A representative from Bird's Eye Solutions will be at the Rapid Imaging Software booth (1352) at AUVSI's Unmanned 2015 conference in Atlanta. For more information visit: http://www.rapidimaging.net or http://www.birdseyesolutions.net.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
