Edward Thomas, RF System Lab borescope expert, arrived in Montreal, Quebec last week and was welcomed with gorgeous weather, a beautiful location, and an abundance of fellow rotorcraft aficionados.  All in all, the American Helicopter Society International 70th Annual Forum and Technology Display, better known as AHS Forum 70, was a great experience.

The conference, which promised to be “the biggest and best vertical flight technology conference in the world,” was a gathering of some of the biggest names in the helicopter industry; Pratt & Whitney and Boeing, just to name a few. Thomas had the opportunity to showcase the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope to those in attendance, who were impressed with the versatility and portability it offered.

When he was not providing demos of the VJ-ADV, Thomas was enjoying the conference, as well as doing a little sightseeing and taking in the culture…via attending a playoff hockey game in the Montreal Canadiens’ home arena. Thomas was also excited to get a glimpse of part of the rotorcraft that won the “Human Powered Helicopter Competition.”

The AHS Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition was originally issued 34 years ago in 1980. The challenge? To keep a helicopter hovering in the air – three meters in altitude, to be exact – using manpower to fuel the flight.  AeroVelo won the prize of $250,000 in 2013.

Clearly, AHS Forum 70 was a great experience. Hockey, human powered helicopters, networking with leaders in the rotorcraft industry… how could Edward Thomas not have a good time?

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at the AHS Forum 70, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescope in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

SOFIC (The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) 2014 was a home-run as far as trade shows are concerned. This was RF System Lab’s first opportunity to show the VJ-Advance video borescope specifically to the Special Operations Community, and with over 9,000 attendees, we chose a great show.

SOFIC took place in Tampa, FL on May 20-22 at the Tampa Convention Center and promised to “provide a forum for military, government, academia, and industry stakeholders to network and discuss current and future challenges and how to best support our Special Operations Forces around the globe.” With attendees from all over the world, all of whom met the description above, this was a promise well-delivered.

Joel Riling, RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs, had a chance to connect with representatives from foreign programs in Poland, Israel, UAE, Cambodia, France, Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, UK, Korea and many others. All of these programs showed a great interest in the fully articulating VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV), which also received interest from multiple SOCOM units and personnel. Riling stated that being able to network with as well as provide demos of the VJ-ADV to a variety of military professionals was phenomenal.

RF System Lab will be signing up for SOFIC 2015 as soon as possible, and we hope to see you there! If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at SOFIC 2014, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

The Quality Expo brought an exhibit hall full of the newest products and services, the most advanced NDT technology, and a plethora of respected suppliers to the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX earlier this month. RF System Lab sales consultant Casey O’Tool was very glad to be a part of the action while exhibiting the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope at the expo.

One benefit of the Quality Expo is that the attendees and exhibitors are widely spread out across the spectrum of the industries they represent. O’Tool would be chatting with an aviation maintenance professional one minute and the next he was presenting the VJ-ADV to a power plant manager. O’Tool was also able to catch up with previous customers, such as Lockheed Martin, Triumph Aerostructures, and Parker Hannifin.

O’Tool was excited to see that attendees, especially those interested in inspecting internal medical devices or brazed joints in turbine engine fuel systems were extremely interested in learning more about the VJ-ADV 2.8mm. Offered in three insertion tube diameters: 6.9mm, 3.9mm, and 2.8mm, the VJ-ADV is adept at handling a large number of industry applications.  For fitting into small spaces or getting around tight corners, the 2.8mm is the perfect choice.

O’Tool highly recommends the Quality Expo and says “if there is one happening near you – ATTEND! You will not regret it.” With that said, we’ll see you in Chicago in 2015, Quality Expo.

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at the Quality Expo, we would like to offer you a free trial.

Gulf South Rotating Machinery Symposium (GSRMS) took place in Baton Rouge, LA last month. Baton Rouge, the home of oil and gas, was the ideal location for this conference, which was a must-attend for professionals in the compression industry.

Casey O’Tool, RF System Lab sales consultant, was on site exhibiting the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope at GSRMS and had the opportunity to provide demos to attendees in between conference sessions. Even though some sessions took up the majority of the day, O’Tool was still able to make some great contacts and reconnect with familiar companies. One of the companies that O’Tool was glad to see was RR Energy Services, a company that specializes in natural gas compression and industrial diesel equipment.

There were many refineries in attendance at GSRMS who were interested in using the VJ-ADV for remote visual inspections (RVI). One notable connection O’Tool made was with Wood Group PSN, a large service company in the oil and gas industry. The show provided a great social event in the form of a Crawfish Boil that offered many chances for attendees and exhibitors to engage in discussions about the compression industry…while enjoying a meal of good old-fashioned Louisiana cuisine.

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope (while chowing down on some delicious crawfish) at Gulf South Rotating Machinery Symposium, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

On April 30th and May 1st, you will find RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs, Joel Riling, at the NDIA Global EOD Conference and Exhibition in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The conference is taking place at the Emerald Coast Convention Center, and this year’s theme is “Preserving Hard-won Gains; Building Capability and Sustaining Capacity”.

The event website states that the Global EOD conference strives to “facilitate contact and cooperation between industry and the EOD community with the goal of ensuring EOD forces have access to the ideas and technologies that originate in our nation’s industrial and academic base.” With keynote speakers Colonel Dean Meinert, USA and Mr. Thomas Dee, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy in addition to a conference full of events geared towards industry and EOD professionals, that goal seems very attainable.

Joel Riling and colleague Leland Browning, both retired military officers, will be exhibiting on behalf of RF System Lab at the Global EOD Conference. Riling will be onsite to provide demos of the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope as well as videoscope information to attendees. Having attended this conference in years past, Riling is looking forward to returning and notes that the Global EOD conference is a great fit for the VJ-ADV. “The ultra-lightweight and portable remote visual inspection system offers technicians world class imagery and intuitive operation.  A fast growing favorite at conferences I’ve attended, the VJ-ADV exceeds expectations at an affordable cost,” comments Riling.

Joel Riling is excited about networking with EOD and industry professionals and showing them how they can benefit from the VJ-ADV. Visit him and demo the ground-breaking VJ-ADV at booth #307 starting at 9:00am on Wednesday, April 30th at the Global EOD Conference.
