Power line inspection by drone and satellite
A world-first combination of satellite-based earth observation and long-range drones to save up to 90% costs in power line inspections.
Inspecting power lines is costly and time-consuming
Current solutions for power line inspections in vegetated areas involve manual inspections and manned helicopters, which are not only very inefficient but also expensive.
Drone and satellites: best of both worlds
Satellites can easily monitor country-sized grids of power lines and identify line stretches endangered by vegetation, but are limited in their ability to provide a detailed view. Drones on the other hand can provide a detailed view, but lack the ability to cover the entire grid efficiently. By deploying drones only where they are needed most, we estimate a cost reduction of up to 90% compared to conventional helicopter flights.
