Sarcos Robotics has announced that Pine Environmental Services, a professional services company that provides equipment for environmental monitoring, nondestructive testing, visual inspection and continuous emissions monitoring (CEMS), will become an official distributor of the Guardian S remote visual inspection and surveillance robot.

Pine Environmental will provide the Guardian S robot for rental in locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Sarcos said Pine is known for having the largest stock of test and measurement equipment in their warehouses across North America, and the company also provides technical and application support for their equipment.

The Guardian S robot, which weighs about 17 lbs., can reliably traverse vertical ferromagnetic surfaces, stairs, culverts, and other unstructured terrain and confined spaces, as well as narrow pipes and tanks. The robot facilitates two-way, real-time video, voice and data communication, all from a safe distance. It can serve several applications, including NDT, disaster recovery, infrastructure inspection and maintenance in industries such as aerospace, maritime, oil and gas, petrochemical, mining, defense, public safety, and security.

“Pine Environmental is well known for its expansive reach within North America and its sizable equipment inventory,” said Scott Hopper, executive vice president of corporate and business development at Sarcos Robotics. “We are very excited to start this partnership, through which we hope to increase the productivity of a wide variety of customers requiring remote inspection and surveillance capabilities, while simultaneously removing workers from potentially hazardous situations.”

“Sarcos has a long history of providing advanced robotics technologies to many different industries,” said Mike McGettigan, chief commercial officer of Pine Environmental. “Pine’s customers will significantly benefit from this premium, differentiated remotely-operated robotics tool, and we’re glad to be able to offer it as part of our portfolio.”
