Who we are

OFIL Europe, based in Vienna/Austria, develops and manufactures high precision multispectral gyrostabilized aerial systems/gimbals. We are part of the OFIL Group, a global leader of UV/Corona sensor solutions and technologies, with offices in the USA, Europe, Asia and Israel.

Our multidisciplinary team of experts is passionate about continually pushing the limits of data quality/precision and inspection efficiency, intuitive user controls/interfaces, and the use of artificial intelligence for fully automated utility inspections. Founded by Dr. Peter Morawitz (High Energy Physicist/Oxford), our team has +20 years of gyro-stabilization expertise, including mechatronics-, electronics-, control system engineers and programmers.

Being part of the OFIL Group, we benefit from decades of expertise in inspection technologies in the Energy markets and incorporate the leading UV DayCor® technology in our systems.

OFIL's Advantage
High Performance
Multispectral Inspections

Overhead power lines are critical infrastructure which must be inspected periodically to ensure the secure supply of energy and to comply with regulatory requirements. The need for predictive maintenance, the ability to use the full network capacity of the grid, and avoidance of liabilities from wildfires are further reasons for inspections of the power grid.

Our high performance sensor options enable fault detection of hot spots in HD with radiometric fixed focal & zoomable Infrared (IR) sensors; detection and identification of UV/Corona faults in HD with zoomable Ultraviolet (UV) sensors; optical fault analysis from zoomable 4K/HD video sensors; and high resolution (61-120MP) image documentation including burst shooting.

Our intuitive graphical controller makes data acquisition a breeze, saving flight- and post processing time. Advanced automation functions – including geo-locking, automatic steering and fault detection – increase the precision and efficieny of your inspections further.

Optical

IR (HD), UV (HD) and Optical (4K/HD) video channels are recorded in uncompressed full resolutions, including the Geo-reference (GPS of target and aircraft). Faults can either be marked with a single press of a button, or triggered/detected through advanced intelligent functions; with the Geo-referenced 61-120 MP resolution images and radiometric IR data automatically recorded for each fault.

Our Products

Our gyrostabilized multispectral gimbal systems are uniquely tailored to and optimised for power line inspections, benefiting from decades of OFIL’s experience in this market. They offer the highest spec’ed sensor options, including OFIL’s leading UV DayCor® technology.

ROM HD

Our highest precision product line incorporates 5-sensors, FOG (fiber optic gyro) technology for high performance drift-free gyrostabilization in 4 axis, and fiber optic technologies for pristine, low latency data transmissions. The ideal choice for inspections with various helicopter platforms.

ROMLite HD

Compact, high precision 4-sensor system, including IR/UV/EO sensors in HD resolution, plus laser range finder. The ideal choice for inspections with lighter aircraft and heavy-duty UAVs/Drones.
