“We had the opportunity to introduce our unique capabilities to the different parties through Cap Vista's network. These valuable collaboration opportunities also served as a rigorous test for our technology, enabling us to further hone, develop and iterate our product suite towards current market needs”.

Not just any drone company but a supplier of drone technology
In the current world, any hobbyist or enthusiast could build a drone or obtain one commercially for recreation. Performance Rotors recognised early that a drone was not just a piece of “flying hardware” but a versatile platform upon which enabling technologies could be built on. These component technologies, in turn, could also be commercialized and sold as products. A team of various specializations comprising hardware engineers, software developers, robotics aficionados, computer vision experts and industry veterans was meticulously assembled to realise this vision.
The founding team of Performance Rotors - Keith, Mark and Mervin first forged their friendship with the common passion for racing drones, which are flown without the guidance of GPS with high precision. This formed the pillar behind the company’s focus on GPS-denied and confined space inspection in the Oil & Gas sector, one of the toughest environments to operate in.

Building drones to go where no man should
While honing their craft, they expanded their product offering towards inspection activities (infrastructure & maritime), often mitigating the need for workers to inspect dangerous and challenging confined environments. This evolution essentially rendered inspection processes safer, more efficient and cost effective.
Looking towards the future, the team innovates rapidly to strengthen their capabilities extending beyond visual inspection and data acquisition in challenging environments.
