CELLULAR TOWER INSPECTIONS
Utilities, Telecommunications, and Energy inspections have become much more complex. The telecommunications industry is one of the first industries to benefit from the use of Drones. Climbing communication towers and other high structures is one of the most dangerous jobs, and telecommunication asset owners can avoid these risks by using drones for these inspections. Commercial drones are changing the way operators are auditing and inspecting wireless infrastructure, by enabling a safer collection of high-resolution images, video, and 3-D renderings of tower assets. The deployment of aerial intelligence using Drones now allows the industry to greatly improve operational efficiencies by having reliable and accurate aerial data of th
eir assets. Drones also reduce the need for workers to climb towers, high tension arrays, and service poles to perform routine audits and inspections. Drones used for tower inspections also allow operators to quickly identify and verify equipment specifications and/or damage, thereby allowing a more proactive approach to maintenance and repair.
HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINE INSPECTIONS
Power lines spanning vast distances are a key component in the distribution of today’s modern power grids. They also present unique maintenance challenges due to their geographical distribution, as well as their high elevations and limited accessibility. Traditionally inspected by helicopter-based methods, they can be more easily and efficiently inspected using sUAV Inspection specialists equipped with Drones. Specialized cameras and highly efficient sensors are used to capture images and video footage that is detailed enough for ultra-fine post-inspection analysis, while telepresence can allow operators to see streamed video in real-time or from a tele-operator control point.
