UAV systems are well suited for asset inspection and requested by many utilities throughout the world. Using aerial video for asset inspection provides less costly and safer method versus traditional inspection methods. With efficient 4K UHD cameras, even small cracks or tears can be seen up close to determine if replacement, repair or even insurance claims should be initiated the same day.
Large companies, utilities and international conglomerates, manage and maintain a vast array of infrastructure throughout the U.S. and the entire planet. To prevent dangerous faults, service interruptions and even significant accidents and property damage, these assets are required to be regularly inspected to detect any problems early on. This is can be vital and is becoming even more detrimental as infrastructure ages.
However, inspecting these assets using human labor can result in delayed processes that may result in a more damage to the asset before it is actually resolved. In many tall structures manual inspection can lead to dangerous situations.
Recent developments in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or “drones” can quickly streamline and enhance the asset inspection process. UAV’s inspections are on the rise and being adopted by a growing number of companies. By using Drone Films LTD’s fleet of drones to inspect assets means that employees and bystanders can stay at a safe distance from the asset, thereby reducing the likelihood of injury.
