VRR is searching for collaboration on automating ULD damage inspections

Severly damaged ULD's in need of repair.

Certified ULDs are considered removable aircraft parts, so it's critically important that they’re deemed airworthy before every flight. However, if you work with ULDs, you know damage checks are time consuming and prone to error.


But what if we could use technology to speed up and improve this process? Maybe even automate parts of it? At VRR, we believe the best way to solve an industry-wide problem like this, is together. We have been working on this project for quite a while now and feel we are ready to take it to the next level, with your help! 


So, if you have experience checking ULDs for damage and airworthiness, we would love to hear from you. Please contact me so I can tell you all about this project.
