Telecommunication providers are experiencing drastic reductions in time (from 1 day to 1 hour) and cost (up to 50%) to complete tower inspections. Legacy inspections performed by engineers scaling dangerous heights are now being augmented and substituted through remote unmanned aerial systems or drones. As a result, detailed final reports are enhanced by improved accuracy and fast turn-around times.
Hand-drawn sketches of antenna additions, engineering or maintenance planning works are replaced with high-resolution images and 3D interactive models. Develop intelligent Digital Twins that automatically show the height of the antenna and angles (azimuth, down tilt, and plumb). Due to electrical interference, specialized drones resistant to such interference are required for safer inspections.
Depending on the client’s needs, condition assessments are performed via radiometric thermal (FLIR), corona discharge, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), and high-resolution electro-optical cameras. Experienced pilots provide a safer method of collecting the data to audit the equipment and wireless infrastructure.
