Assessing the condition of transmission and distribution power lines is costly. Which is why you need, a cost effective way to inspect your power line assets that captures all the data needed for asset condition, and vegetation management.
Old, ground-based methods are not objective, auditable, reliable, timely or cost-effective. But aerial inspections using multiple geo-referenced sensors, LiDAR, high resolution photography, video, ultraviolet and infrared capture all essential asset condition data in a single flight, including:
With this data, network engineers perform the full range of inspections and analysis without leaving the office.
In addition to capturing all necessary inspection data in one pass, modern inspection techniques should meet ten criteria. Read more about this in AAM’s article in ESDN magazine.
