Inuktun. Transform the Future.


Vision Statement

“To solve the world’s remote inspection and tooling challenges through applied science, innovative designs and high quality equipment.”


Mission Statement

Inuktun’s mission is to create technology that enables people to perform tasks that they could not otherwise do, in places they could not otherwise go. Our goal is not to replace people, but instead provide products that enable access to areas that are too dangerous or remote for direct human intervention. We will be the industry leading designer and manufacturer of Multi-Mission Modular (IM3) inspection systems for use in hazardous areas, confined spaces and underwater applications throughout the world.

What this means to our clients:

Industry Leading
Inuktun will be market leaders by consistently providing innovative, quality products to our customers.

Designer
Our innovative design team uses their expertise in designing standard camera and crawler systems to customize existing products or create new products to meet customers’ specific needs.

Manufacturer
Every phase of production meets Inuktun’s high quality standards from product development to delivery of finished goods.

Multi-Mission Modular (IM3)
Inuktun’s systems are built on the principle of modular design. Customers can select from a range of standard Inuktun crawlers, cameras and controllers to create their own off-the-shelf yet customized solutions.

Inspection Systems
Inuktun robotic systems bridge the gap between you and the physical world, helping you to see the unseen and safely go beyond your physical limitations.

Components
In addition to providing complete turnkey systems, Inuktun offers components to customers for use in their own applications.

Hazardous Areas

It all started when…

Inuktun founders Terry Knight (Left) and Allen Robinson (Right)

Inuktun Services Limited was founded in 1989 by the passionate inventor and entrepreneur Allen (Al) Robinson and his business partner, Terry Knight. Early in his career, Al found his passion for undersea vehicles and spent many hours underwater recovering torpedoes for the US Navy. He went on to design a manipulator arm for the Alvin submersible that dove on the Titanic and created a unique robotic manipulator that folds and throws paper airplanes. His creation now finds its home in the Smithsonian Institute.

Today, Inuktun employs a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, scientists, administrative and production personnel at its headquarters in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. The company designs and manufactures remotely operated vehicles and modular robotic systems for use in confined spaces and hazardous environments. Inuktun continues to build a reputation as the expert in remote controlled robotic transport and delivery of visual inspection equipment and instrumentation tooling. Reliability, efficiency, quality and cost-effectiveness are emphasized in the design of all Multi-Mission Modular (IM3) technology produced by Inuktun.

In addition to producing, selling, and renting a complete line of OnSite Standard Products and OnDemand Specialty Systems for a variety of remote inspection applications, Inuktun also offers a complete range of OnSpec Custom Solutions via engineering services, from conceptual design through to project completion.

To ensure and maintain the company’s high standard of quality systems assembly, integration and testing are accomplished using in-house electronic and machine assembly staff. In addition, Inuktun regularly develops partnerships with other businesses and consultants to provide specialty engineering in accordance with design criteria. As a result, Inuktun is able to provide customers with innovative, high quality equipment that is functionally reliable, easily operated, and cost-effective.

Inuktun has an excellent track record of providing complex, custom, mobile robotic systems to sophisticated clients around the world. Our customers not only affect and transform outcomes by assessing and mitigating future risk — in the future, end users will increasingly manage the transformation of their own Inuktun systems without an intermediary, thanks to IM3 technology. The power to transform is the future.
