Safety and cost-effectiveness are crucial when it comes to comprehensive visual inspections (CVIs). Besides the cost and risk, aggregating the data you collect into a single, standardized database can be messy—if not impossible.
Deploy remote sensors to inspect and inventory your assets. Amplify the volume and detail of your data collection with a GIS solution; you’ll increase safety, lower costs, and gain insights that will help you make better business decisions.
Our industry-leading geospatial technology portfolio, engineered for transmission inspection:
Define structure shot sheets and data delivery requirements. Determine the information you need to plan your field inspection and CVI projects.
Capture visual imagery using high-resolution aerial cameras. Capture precise measurements, geolocation data, and asset health indicators—plus terrain, vegetation, and water features—and record inspection outcomes in a checklist
QC data for any required data recollection and upload to servers. Our team of data analysts produces structural models using LiDAR data, delivering precise measures of asset height, depth, health, phasing of power cables, lean, and attachments.
“Call in” criticals observed in the field and store data for additional analysis. The PrecisionAnalytics AI engine organizes, georectifies, and annotates imagery to address issues specific to your project.
Generate analytics from aggregate inspection outcomes. View transmission tower health measures and identify trends and non-compliant anomalies.
Distribute work orders with CVI imagery for context and activate O&M vendors.
PrecisionHawk’s operators collect, process, analyze, and report on LiDAR models to identify vegetation encroachment that can be difficult to spot with the naked eye. View an encroachment map overlaid on a street map, or in a 3D point cloud model, to avoid degradation of assets.
Traditional CVIs can be intensive and expensive. By incorporating data collection, processing, and reporting into a streamlined, end-to-end service and software solution, PrecisionHawk has made it easier to use GIS intelligence. Collect more and better data so you can take the right action at the right time.
For most utilities, vegetation is the #1 cause of unplanned outages. It degrades structural foundations and can even spark a wildfire. However, encroachment can often be difficult to spot with the naked eye, especially in densely vegetated areas.
PrecisionHawk’s operators collect, process, analyze, and report on LiDAR models of transmission rights-of-ways to identify vegetation encroachment.
