Current Magnetometry Inspection - A drone-based inspection system that is capable of inspecting buried pipelines remotely

The Current Magnetometry Inspection (CMI), as a non-destructive technology enabling pipeline operators to receive information about their pipeline effortlessly. CMI generates information about the condition, position, and geometry of pipelines. Cleaning and opening the pipeline are not necessary. Consequently, the production mode of the pipeline is not affected by the inspection at any point. The technology works remotely from the earth's surface, and inspection output is maximized while preparations and costs are reduced to a minimum.
