Drones + GPR:
A Modern Solution for Underground Utility Locating

FREE WEBINAR

Thursday, May 12th
11:00 am EDT (UTC-4)

Modern infrastructure involves an increasingly complex network of underground pipes, cables, wires, and conduits. Avoiding this maze of buried utility lines is of critical importance during any development project.

Need has risen for a fast, efficient, and cost-effective option for subsurface data acquisition. 

In this webinar Jared Seufert of AltoMaxx Technologies and Krišjānis Linkevičs of SPH Engineering will share how drone-based Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) can be used for underground utility locating.  

Attendees will learn the benefits and capabilities of drone-based surveys, see real world examples of GPR data acquisition and analysis, and leave with a new, efficient option for addressing their utility locating needs

AI/Utility Inspection

Understanding the physical condition of assets is critical to the efficient and effective delivery of your operations. 

Drone services like asset inspections allow power utilities to inspect areas that are otherwise hard to reach. This enables safe and efficient maintenance programs, avoiding costly outages, and meeting the demands of regulators and clients.

Technologies used in the delivery of our inspection services include: 

Survey,Mapping,aand Modelling

Understanding your site is critical to delivering your project. Drone Services provide an aerial advantage. 

From the development of a new facility, to maintenance of existing assets, and logging geospatial data. Our experts understand what it takes to deliver fast, reliable, and efficient modelling services. 

Technologies used in the delivery of our Survey, Mapping, and Modelling services include: 

Vegetation Management

Vegetation growth along transmission right-of-way’s represent a significant hazard for operations, and often a root cause of power failures. 

Mitigating these risks is a major challenge for power utilities. Repairs following an incident can be expensive, while compliance programs to maintain regulations present both operational risks to staff and costly terrestrial programs. 

Drone services allow clients to quickly and efficiently map power line corridors, creating accurate 2D and 3D models. 

These models measure the distance between vegetation and power lines, helping to maintain a safe clearance distance and maintenance.

Technologies used in the delivery of our Vegetation Management services include: 

Boiler/Stack Inspection

Drones are compact and flexible, able to fly into boilers and stacks for a full scan without shutdowns or endangering inspection workers. The live footage helps identify risks for informed decision-making. 

Our drones are equipped with advanced obstacle sensing systems, spotlights, and thermal cameras. Allowing for reliable deployment for internal inspections to detect defects.

Technologies used in the delivery of our Stack Inspection services include: 

 

Solar Farm Inspection

Solar farm management costs power utilities an estimated $1 billion per year in labor costs. In order to avoid unnecessary and unexpected costs, routine inspections are important to ensure everything is in proper working order. 

While these inspections are a critical element of operational efficiency, they can be both hazardous and tedious. Drone services can help you detect hot spots instantly – transforming a half-day job into minutes.
