& TURNKEY INSPECTION FOR ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
Leading Utilities & Service Companies Trust UAV Recon to Ensure Grid Reliability
UAV Recon Has You Covered
From flight to final report
Pilots With Industry Expertise
Anyone can fly a drone, but few people really understand aerial operations. UAV Recon Pilots are trained to the highest level of safety and operational efficiency. Our Chief Pilot is a U.S. Air Force Veteran with 3,300+ flight hours, a Part 61 Instrument Rated Commercial Pilot, and an AUVSI Level 3 Trusted Operator. He’s also trained 200+ pilots to successful completion of their FAA Part 107 Certifications. In summary, we understand aerial safety and operations better than most.
Transmission & Distribution
(4kV to 345+kV)
From the smallest distribution lines through interstate transmission structures, UAV Recon uses advanced technology to capture high-resolution visual data around components, structures and vegetation encroachment. Standard service offerings include a camera quality of 20 Megapixels and 4K videos with a 77° Field Of View.
Thermal Data Capture
(Customer, Distribution & System-level)
UAV Recon capabilities include thermal sensing for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. Our certified electrical thermographers deliver inspections that meet ANSI/ASNT CP-105 and CP-189. UAV Recon is also licensed to fly at night.
Validated Analysis & Inspection
100+ Certified Journeymen Linemen
UAV Recon's network of certified journeymen linemen has expertise across electrical lines from 4kV to 345+kV. From structure damage to component-level wear and tear, our linemen identify & diagnose defects for criticality & repair requirements including parts and labor hours.
Natural Disaster: Rapid Response
During natural disasters, response time is critical. Traditional data capture and inspection methods fail to provide stakeholders with immediate actionable data. While faster than ground-based data collection, traditional UAV-based inspection requires post-processing that can take hours or even days. For that reason, UAV Recon is a certified enterprise-level NAR customer. With NAR, UAV Recon delivers real-time natural disaster & damage assessment reports. In recent flooding events, UAV Recon delivered assessment reports in under 30 minutes.
