Rotary/Fixed Wing Aircraft Inspection Instruments

DayCor® ROM HD is a premium choice for aerial inspections to remotely detect faulty electrical & mechanical installations. The collected data includes imaging and detailed radiometric readings of multiple detection technologies encompassing multifaceted maintenance aspects.

DayCor® ROM HD is a powerful high-speed inspection solution for aircrafts, equipped with combinations of outstandingly highly sensitive, high definition (HD) sensors in a gyro stabilized payload platform.  ROM meets the need for stability, accuracy, functionality, convenience and qualitative data collection. The default solution has 5 sensors, including an exclusive bi-Spectral UV-HD camera with optical zoom, a photo camera with extended megapixels and zoom lens, remote 3rd generation Geo recorder, provides high-resolution color video and infrared imaging, Laser range finders etc., It is easily installed/removed to meet the aircraft’s multi-mission demands.

Ofil offers its customer the option to select their preferred sensors and incorporate them in the payload. The gimballed payload is designed by the RTCA DO 160G environmental standard. ROM can be used for fire detection and with some adjustments for oil spill mapping.

For over a decade, Ofil designs and manufactures modules of airborne systems for electrical utilities, environmental organizations and fire fighters, worldwide.

A bi-spectral UV-Visible HD sensor for airborne systems

Enhanced Efficiency with Every Job

Ofil developed a multi-sensor gimbal specifically for airborne surveys and inspection of electric utility infrastructure. ROM HD is capable of high-resolution color video, infrared and ultraviolet imaging, as well as still photography. The incorporated technologies are efficient for fire and emergency management, for mapping fire lines, assessing rate of spread and identifying heat sources.

Excellent Data Acquisition

The outstanding stabilizing architecture ensures the acquisition of high-quality imagery on the move, smooth and without jittering. The hi-sensitive detectors ensure data accuracy. The selected complementary technologies ensure comprehensive true representation of the real state of the inspected infrastructure.

Ergonomically Designed for Aerial Inspection

Investment of skill & resources in combination with professional workmanship resulted in a unique incomparable remote control.  This smart remote control is very easy and simple to maneuver. Functions respond instantaneously to the commands, as expected from a fast-moving working platform.

Beyond the Limits of Human Eyes

ROM HD extends our viewing capabilities letting us see the full spectral range starting at Ultraviolet short waves and up to the longer Infrared waves. Each wavelength adds typical specific information. The consolidated information becomes valuable only in the context of power line inspections where corona PD on the one side and hot spots on the other have meanings.  ROM HD provides for optimal architecture of high level multiple complementary imagery technologies.


Aerial Corona Camera Core

ROM EYE HD is an OEM bi-spectral UV-Visible HD imaging block corona camera.

ROMeye HD is a corona imager that incorporates a UVc detector and a HD visible camera allowing seeing UV corona discharges in daylight and recording their sight. Corona is invisible to the human eye and can only be seen with bi-spectral UV-Visible corona imagers.

ROMeye HD is a corona imager that incorporates a UVc detector and a HD visible camera allowing seeing UV corona discharges in daylight and recording their sight. Corona is invisible to the human eye and can only be seen with bi-spectral UV-Visible corona imagers.

ROMeye HD is a high-end camera core that incorporates Ofil’s proprietary DayCor® technology augmented by additional features to be qualified for flying conditions. The camera provides pinpointed information about UVc corona signals on remote inspected objects while on the move. ROMeye HD records HD video clips continuously without overheating, storing them onto an onboard SD card. The HDMI interface is used to display findings on an external monitor. Control over the camera is achieved through a selection of communication protocols. Moreover, its small dimensions, vibration & shock endurance, firmness and robust structure make it fit for a wide range of airborne gimballed payloads. ROMeye HD is an excellent choice for organizations that own airborne gimbaled payloads and wish to introduce corona detection capability.

ROMeye HD is a premium choice for organizations that build their own solution with selected detectors, or wish to replace existing system with a newer modern camera. Either way, Ofil provides full technical support to assist with integration.
