Similar to powerline inspections, pipelines that span many kilometers can benefit significantly from implementing drone inspection technologies. Speed and automation reduce the cost of each assessment. A combination of imaging technologies allows drones to capture the same if not better quality images than traditional inspections.

 
“To put things into perspective, a 1% leak in a 20-inch pipeline can lead to a loss of 450,000 barrels a year and can irrevocably damage an area of up to 10 square kilometers. It is therefore essential that proper care be taken to ensure the reliability and quality of the pipelines in the field. “

Cellular Towers

  • Higher-resolution visual inspections than ground-based inspections
  • Significantly reduce man-hours and costs by automating inspections
  • Safely assess the condition and orientation of all components of cell towers
  • Inspections from a safe distance
  • Cellular Towers remain functional during the inspection
  • Increase efficiency due to data accuracy and reliability, live streaming, and zoom/thermal/4k capabilities

Cellular Towers

Reduced Inspection costs by up to 50% because of the highly automated process that allows drones to capture engineering-grade information on the condition of various powerlines without the need for physical man-hours traveling in between towers. By using LiDAR technology and a combination of thermal and visual resources, drones can more accurately present data on the condition of these assets.
