AERIAL UTILITY INSPECTIONS
Millions of miles of power lines are being inspected by driving in vehicles and then on foot where inaccessible terrain discourages close or multiple angle viewing. Frequent stops are time-consuming. At times, inspectors fly aboard helicopters to inspect visually and/or with binoculars and handheld cameras, where fatigue associated with looking through these devices sets in quickly. Helicopters equipped with TrakkCams provide multispectral inspections (visible, radiometric infrared, ultraviolet and high-resolution digital stills) that cover more distance per hour.
UAVs are a popular tool that complements helicopter inspections by providing spot inspections after repairs. Coupled with preventive repairs, the TrakkaCam provides cost savings by helping to reduce reactive maintenance and unscheduled downtime. In addition to utility inspections, the TrakkaCam can be used for pipeline and ROW inspections, disaster damage assessment, wildfire fighting, environmental and wildlife surveys.
