Utility UAS Imaging Services

On-Going Monitoring and Inspections
of Assets and Infrastructure

Consequently, if on-going monitoring and inspections are what you need, we have got just the right team and aircraft to handle this for you. Whether you need weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly intervals we can set up a plan that fits your requirements.

We support the following with on-going utility UAS inspection imagery:

  • Gas and electric entities with gas and power lines corridors, supporting infrastructure and vegetation encroachment
  • Water utilities with tanks, dams, reservoirs, storm water management and waterways
  • Communications companies with cell towers and other supporting infrastructure
  • Alternative energy companies with solar fields and wind turbines

Sustainability Factor

Not surprisingly, UAS are a far more sustainable addition to your processes than traditional means. In one hour a manned helicopter burns aprox 100 lbs of fuel/hour. In comparison, our UAS burn 0 lbs, as they are electric. Let’s take into consideration a 12-month project requiring a monthly aerial inspection. In total, the manned craft would’ve burned 1200 lbs of fuel creating 22,578 lbs of carbon emissions. To emphisize, the drone created no emissions. Bucket trucks and cranes also create CO2 while on the job, UAS create none. If your keeping track of the sustainability score board, that’s UAS 3, Traditional Equipment 0.
