Drone Inspections of Elevated Structures

Aerial Inspection of Tower Assets
Cell Towers, Hydro Towers and similar Elevated Structures
Average Flight Time = 1Hrs (varies with complexity)
SFOC Required: Location Dependent

Elevated asset inspections via UAV or drones cover a broad category of assets that very require an eyes on evaluation to ensure integrity and to evaluate the maintenance required to keep them in good working order. A prevention strategy is important to reduce loss. Using drones for inspections of towers and related structure is an extremely cost effective way to collect data and to ensure everything is in order.

The inspection of certain assets may be required company policy or by law and therefore can provide an excellent way of documenting conformance and compliance, since image and video provide a permanent record.

Inspection of assets at height by UAV or drones has many advantages. Principally, using a remotely controlled camera is nearly always better than putting people in harms way. Risky inspections can be avoided.

Certain assets, structures or industrial infrastructure can benefit from a lower risk, lower cost inspection regime offered by Recon Aerial Media as detailed below. However, one look at the image to the right will convince you that unnecessary mobilization of resources is very costly and should be avoided.
