Remote Visual Inspection

Remote visual inspection (RVI) is a form of nondestructive testing that allows technicians to inspect structures and equipment remotely, using various types of specialized camera equipment. Our NDT experts use borescopes, drones, and other forms of robotic camera systems to access confined spaces and areas that are otherwise inaccessible. RVI is a safe, efficient, cost-effective inspection method with a versatile range of applications. Applied Technical Services’ remote visual inspection capabilities allow us to help clients maintain safety and standard compliance without disrupting production time.
