AERIAL SURVEY APPLICATIONS

Civil Infrastructure Inspection

FALCON Survey's drone solution provides you with fast and thorough inspection of bridges, power lines, buildings and rooftops. Cutting costs in infrastructure maintenance with UAVs

WHY USE DRONES IN INFRASTRUCTURE?

The infrastructure inspection sector has been quick to adopt unmanned aerial systems as a powerful new tool offering new ways to capture and process data and cut costs and safety risks.

Drones are now in worldwide use for inspecting utility towers and bridges, air transport infrastructure, railways and roadways, and much more. They can be operated at a fraction of the cost of traditional inspection crews, and, when equipped with the latest technologies, such as LiDAR, state of the art GNSS and inertial sensors, they can deliver the highest quality in imaging and positioning data.

INFRASTRUCTURE APPLICATIONS

Here are some of the types of infrastructure inspections that are becoming dramatically safer with Drones

  • Transmission and distribution (T&D) lines, to identify vegetation encroachment and wildfire fuels buildup, leaning power poles, sagging wires, snagged metallic balloons, equipment wear, vandalism, and more
  • Oil and natural gas pipelines, for leak detection and equipment corrosion
  • Vertical structures—nuclear cooling towers, storage tanks, smokestacks, piers, and the like—to look for signs of wear and anomalies
  • Dams and levees, to identify structural defects and needed repairs, and assure environmental compliance/avoid stopwork claims during replacement work
  • Bridges, underpasses, overpasses and culverts, for cracks, wear, general conditions
  • Roads and freeways, to assess cracking and maintenance needs of pavement
  • Municipal water systems—aqueducts, fish ladders on older dams, reservoirs—for leak detection, environmental monitoring, vegetation management, equipment maintenance, and security
  • Railways, to check for wear, vegetation, rocks, and security on tracks, as well as conditions of bridges, poles, and yards
  • Utility-scale solar facilities, for locating sub-performing arrays and repair needs
  • Onshore and offshore wind turbines, to detect cracks and other maintenance needs
  • Emergency, post-weather-event, and post-disaster damage assessments of all of the above

ACCURATE, SAFE AERIAL INSPECTIONS IN MINUTES

UAVs are revolutionizing the inspection industry. Below are just a few of the inspection types users complete with drones systems:

OIL PIPELINE INSPECTION

GAS PIPELINE INSPECTIONS

SOLAR PANEL INSPECTIONS

METHANE GAS INSPECTIONS

POWER LINE / CABLE INSPECTIONS

COOLING TOWER INSPECTIONS

CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE INSPECTIONS

WIND TURBINE / WINDMILL INSPECTIONS

RAILWAY / TRAIN LINE INSPECTIONS

BRIDGE INSPECTIONS

MONUMENT INSPECTIONS

RADIATION MEASUREMENT AND MONITORING

COMPLETE, INDUSTRY-LEADING SOLUTIONS FOR DRONE-BASED AERIAL INSPECTIONS.

Power lines. Cell towers. Oil and gas pipelines. Railways. Methane detection – all of these and so many other types of industrial inspection are made easier, safer, and more efficient with Microdrones unmanned aerial systems.

Large, complex structures are best surveyed from the air. It’s no wonder that inspection has been one of the first UAV applications to be quickly and widely embraced world-wide.
