Founded in 2016, Notilo Plus develop intelligent, autonomous underwater drones for various industries. Their applications allow professionals to detect and inspect points of interest on underwater workings and ships’ hull, using advanced AI and technological systems. With clients in sectors in the defense, oil & gas, rescue, shipping, maritime industries and scientific research sectors, their goal is to provide professionals with integrated solutions. Because their partners require autonomous inspections, they needed to find robust equipment to complete their drone solutions and allow them to pilot underwater drones in various type of conditions. For underwater professionals, hardware is a key component of their missions’ success. Plus, because they may face harsh weather conditions, Notilo Plus was looking for rugged devices with core and reliable features.
“Our clients carry out underwater inspections in all types of weather. Therefore, we had to find a robust solution that could perform at high level and withstand the harsh environmental conditions to lead those missions. Getac is a partner of choice due to the amplitude of the range offered, with different screen sizes, functionalities, and processor powers. Their devices have the ability to adapt to different problems and needs, including those of our partners” explains Thibaut Humbert.

After extensive research, Notilo Plus selected the F110 for its world-class robustness, its IP65 certification, as well as its design. Because Notilo Plus partners work in challenging environments where consumer-grade products can be subject to failure, it was essential to provide them with a rugged device that can keep operating even when facing water jets. Maritime environments and the exposure to salt are also a great challenge to computing devices. Getac offers a unique anti-corrosion technology integrated in the F110 which has a salt fog resistance.
In fact, the fully rugged tablet is MIL-STD810G and IP65-certified to survive drops up to four feet and endure rain, moisture, vibrations, shock as well as extreme temperatures from -21 °C to 60 °C (operating temperature) and -40 °C to 71 °C – (storage temperature). The F110 is also backed by Getac’s industry-best, three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that includes damage which occurs due to accidents and environmental exposure.
Designed to help field service professionals meet the demands of extreme working environments, the F110 rugged tablet breaks ground with its large 11.6″ display, 8th
Generation Intel® Core™ processor, amazing graphics, and dual batteries.
Moreover, the F110 takes advantage of Getac’s revolutionary LumiBond® 2.0 touchscreen technology, which bonds the display glass with the touch panel and LCD, creating a single pane that is very durable and readable. It features four advanced touch modes, (Touch/Rain, Glove or Pen mode, plus an optional Digitizer mode), to provide the right sensitivity for any environment, while the wide screen provides ample real estate for applications with minimal scrolling.
Combined with the Seasam Underwater DroneTM, the F110 allow users to experience maximum mobile performance while benefiting from the various technological advancements of Getac. With this tablet as a control unit for Notilo Plus’ solutions, professionals can operate and perform underwater operations in any environment. Once done, they are able to process the data they collected directly from their F110 using its wireless capabilities and its accessories, such as a detachable keyboard and a shoulder harness.
“The F110 is a good compromise in regard to the needs of our customers. The ability to move around with the piloting solution is essential for us. Customers need to feel free while using our drones”, says Thibaut Humbert.
