Next week, May 4-7, 2015, RF System Lab will be exhibiting at the well-known Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) for the first time. According the the event website, the OTC Technical program covers a wide range of topics related to the offshore energy industry. Additionally, the show offers key insights by global experts on technological advances, safety and environmentally focused solutions, and economic and regulatory impacts.
The conference, which takes place annually at NRG Park in Houston, TX, has a reputation for setting a standard in the energy industry by advancing technical knowledge and scientific research; leading to enhanced competency of industry professionals.
OTC boasts one of the largest exhibit halls in the oil and gas industry. RF System Lab is excited to be one of the 2,271 exhibitors at this year’s show. Casey O’Tool, RF System Lab’s Senior Sales Consultant, will be onsite presenting the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope to offshore maintenance professionals. The lightweight and extremely portable AA-battery-powered VJ-Advance is the ideal tool for inspecting pipes and ensuring that no pitting, corrosion, cracks or other defects are occurring. Additionally, the joystick-controlled 360 degree articulation on the line of VJ-Advance video borescopes makes turbine and rotating machinery inspections stress-free.
Interested parties can test out the VJ-Advance for themselves at OTC booth #6427. Casey O’Tool will be glad to provide more information about how the VJ-Advance from RF System Lab is the perfect tool for ensuring efficient safety checks on offshore oil rigs. We look forward to seeing you there!

RF System Lab would like to announce new clients from the month of March. The newest owners of the VJ-Advance video borescope (VJ-ADV) come from multiple industries, including automotive, aviation, and oil & gas.
One of our newest customers in the aviation industry is Island Helicopters. This Hawaiian rotorcraft company offers both a Kauai Grand Tour and an exclusive Jurassic Falls (made famous by the Jurassic Park movies) tour. Because their helicopters must make multiple trips each day with civilians on board, they must ensure that all parts are in top-notch condition. The need for quality checks done with complete confidence is why Island Helicopters chose the VJ-ADV as their inspection tool. With its lightweight portability and easy-to-use joystick-controlled articulation, the VJ-ADV was an obvious choice for making sure passengers are safe on their scenic tours.
Another VJ-Advance video borescope user is ExxonMobil, the world’s largest publicly traded international oil & gas company. ExxonMobil was searching for a video borescope that was portable and easy to use for compressor inspections. The hand-held VJ-ADV, weighing less than 2lbs, met all of the company’s requirements. The VJ-ADV’s ergonomic pistol-grip design makes it the ideal tool for companies that value stress-free and efficient internal inspections.
RF System Lab acquired another aviation customer in March: AeroMaritime. AeroMaritime is a Rolls-Royce Authorized Maintenance Repair & Overhaul Center. The company also performs Pratt & Whitney PW200 series field service, making the VJ-ADV an excellent tool for their inspection needs. The four-way articulating 3.9 VJ-ADV fits seamlessly with Pratt & Whitney guide tube, which greatly assists with MRO inspections.
We are proud to have Harley Davidson, a major American motorcycle company, as a new customer in the automotive industry. Harley Davidson is utilizing the VJ-ADV for engine inspections. More specifically, the motorcycle company is troubleshooting problems by filming injectors while engines are running in different start-up conditions. The VJ-ADV’s 360 articulation, slim insertion tube diameters, and on-board video recording capabilities – offered at an affordable price point – were big factors in the purchasing decision.
We at RF System Lab would like to thank these new clients, as well as many additional clients not listed here. Companies interested in demoing the VJ-Advance video borescope can sign up for our no-cost, no-obligation demo program.

Last week’s Aerospace Maintenance Competition provided an uplifting look into the future of aviation and aerospace maintenance. Fourteen teams competed in the School Division of the 2015 Aerospace Maintenance Competition (AMC); a skill-based event that took place during last week’s 2015 MRO Americas.
Zack Wessels, RF System Lab borescope expert, was onsite at AMC for the duration of the event and was extremely impressed with the caliber of teams competing; especially the college teams. “It was great to see a high-level of teamwork and problem solving skills from the teams in the school division… it was an exciting look into what to expect from future AMTs/AMEs,” said Wessels.
RF System Lab sponsored the event and also donated a VJ-Advance video borescope that was awarded to the winning college team. After a grueling two-day competition, Salt Lake Community College was crowned the winning team for the School division. In addition to earning the title of First Place Team in the School division, Salt Lake Community College took home a plethora of prizes, including the high-quality VJ-Advance articulation video borescope.
We would like to congratulate Salt Lake Community College on their victory, as well as all the other teams who came out to compete in this year’s AMC!

Next week’s Border Security Expo is bringing together high-level decision-makers from all over the world to discuss the most pressing topics involved with border enforcement. The expo, which takes place April 21-22nd at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, AZ, offers panel sessions, keynote speeches from Vice Admiral Charles W. Ray, Phil Landfried, Daniel Ragsdale, and Ronald D. Vitiello, as well as an exhibit hall packed with the latest advancements in border security.
As stated by Jayson P. Ahem, Principal, The Chertoff Group and Former Acting Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, “Border Security Expo is an important world class event that is the premier border security conference in the world.”
RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs, Joel Riling, will be exhibiting on behalf of RF System Lab. He will be onsite to provide demonstrations and give information about the line of ergonomic VJ-Advance articulating video borescopes. The VJ-Advance, which is currently being used by every branch in the military, is an excellent tool for bomb squads and EOD professionals to have on hand; especially where border security is involved. With poly-coated insertion tubes as tiny as 2.8mm, the joystick-controlled VJ-Advance can fit in extremely small areas; allowing border security professionals to internally inspect suspicious areas with confidence.
Interested parties can stop by the RF System Lab Booth #1118 in the Border Security Expo exhibit hall for more information. If you’re unable to attend this expo, check-out future shows that RF System Lab will be attending on the RF System Lab website.
