Get better data faster and safer than traditional methods—Electrical utilities are improving safety margins, lowering costs, and expediting their modernization programs with geospatial technology.

How Utilities Are Using the PrecisionHawk Solution to Take Timely and Effective Action




Electrical utilities’ operators use high-precision remote sensing technology to collect and deliver raw photos and videos of their assets. The PrecisionAnalytics AI engine then organizes, georectifies, and annotates imagery to help utilities improve their inspections, reduce regulatory risk, decrease the impact of vegetation encroachment, and accelerate their modernization and pole-hardening programs.




Harsh environments can cause a transmission tower to fail in as little as 15 years, and neglecting to repair structures in a timely manner can cost utilities anywhere from $14 million to $153 million overall. PrecisionHawk gives utilities a fast, cost-effective way to capture, analyze, report, share, and take action on high-quality data on asset health.

Substations consist of a lot of sensitive equipment packed into a small space, making safety a key consideration. The PrecisionHawk inspection solution uses drones equipped with failsafe features that can fly low and slow to capture rich RGB and LiDAR data from a variety of angles. Utilities can then track changes to the equipment over time and make timely plans for repairs and renovations.




PrecisionAnalytics Energy Helps Utilities Make Better Business Decisions


Decision makers can use PrecisionHawk’s utilities solution—featuring the PrecisionAnalytics aerial mapping, modeling, and inspection platform—to:

  • Manage transmission, distribution, and substation assets over the complete lifecycle.

  • Identify potential issues and exactly where they are on your property.
  • Detect small problems in tower and line components before they turn into big problems.
  • Conduct a thorough inventory of assets to inform modernization initiatives or compliance efforts.

  • Use data collected over time for long-term asset management.
  • Get an uncompromised view of your assets with powerful maps, models, and measurements.
  • Deliver insights across your organization with flexible reporting and integration.
