What does this mean for your industry?
ELECTRIC UTILITES: Transmission and distribution line data collection and analysis of high-voltage structures. We also can collect data on substations and vegetation encroachment, all to ensure the safety and reliability of your infrastructure.
SOLAR: We can reduce the need for manual measurement-taking by conducting quick and accurate pre-installation surveys. We can also inspect panels with thermal cameras to pinpoint dead spots or faulty cells, and locate debris and other impediments that affect efficiency.
WIND: Hawkeye Workshop provides up-close data collection to minimize the need for manned inspections and thus, minimizing risk to crews. Customers use collected information to track performance and target needed repairs.
OIL AND GAS: Unlike dangerous and complicated manned inspections, sUAS surveys provide data on areas workers can’t safely and easily reach. We help our customers conduct structural defect inspections that locate problems quickly.
