Maverick Research & Development

We provide our clients with the right tool for the job

Research & Development began for Maverick in 1994: sourcing, customizing, developing and creating inspection tools because there was no other choice. In the beginning, we had a limited selection of options and we often had to create our own ways of accomplishing completely new inspection missions.

We were never satisfied with the status quo. Even our first robotic crawler was a combination of the best features of American and Canadian inspection systems, coordinated through a custom control console.

Our inspection arsenal has improved exponentially since the beginning, including the only CSA Rated Explosion Proof remote video inspection systems in Canada, one of very few 50MHz Rough Terrain radar systems in North America, and a wide range of other inspection instruments, positioning systems, analysis software, and other tools and accessories.

From Alberta industry to oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, to crude storage tanks in Egypt to forensic archaeology in the Pacific WWII sites, we have innovated. From field improvisation and repair to producing new tools and methods, Maverick has developed the means to get results.

Our need and ability to source out and develop specialized solutions continues. We now have a complete in-house metal fabrication facility, CAD and electronics capabilities, testing and training structures, and more. Our R&D services include:

  • helping clients set up equipment and procedures for in-house testing
  • field-testing new inspection systems
  • developing and modifying custom inspection systems
  • providing data-gathering support for product or process development
  • developing custom solutions for client inspection applications

We have introduced prototype and unique technology to our clients specific to their needs including magnetic crawler camera systems, high-temperature camera systems for active furnaces and boilers, infrared-based gas leak imaging systems, measurement software, and specialized infrared inspection methods.

We have designed, built, and successfully used custom solutions including retrieval systems, flare stack video inspection tools, remote camera access platforms, laser profiling skids, measurement instruments, and other client-requested innovations.
