UAVIA, the editor of “UAVIA Robotics Platform”, the standardised collaborative platform to handle autonomous drone operations, and HEXADRONE, manufacturer of the drone TUNDRA, announce the availability of the TUNDRA UAVIA Inside drone, result of the integration of UAVIA’s embedded technology into the acclaimed TUNDRA drone. The TUNDRA UAVIA Inside will be commercialised by HEXADRONE following a partnership agreement signed between the two companies.

TotalEnergies’ performance in reducing methane emissions is one of the best in the industry. In November 2020, TotalEnergies signed onto a second phase of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP  2.0), supporting a broader, more ambitious reporting framework extended to cover the entire gas value chain and non-operated assets.

A first TUNDRA UAVIA Inside drone has been succesfully demonstrated and delivered to the lead customer TotalEnergies, at HEXADRONE headquarter, on February 10th. This machine will be applied to greenhouse gases emissions quantification, in on-shore and off-shore TotalEnergies installations. This unrivalled real time measurement use case is made possible by the integration of the AUSEA gases sensor with UAVIA unique and patented 4G-5G connectivity, autonomous navigation and  Edge Computing capabilities.
