The only company capable of aerial 3D mapping Power Lines without using a helicopter or large Drones with LiDAR
Our solution allows the Drone to be operated safely by the customer, partner or our team of pilots with the lowest cost on the market
With the 3D mapping of Power Lines using Direct Georeferencing (DG) and innovative aerophotogrammetry technology, it is possible to carry out detailed analyzes of areas with a potential risk of accidents due to the proximity of the Power Lines.
To make these applications efficient, LiDAR laser scanner technology is used and installed on manned aircraft or large Drones, allowing to identify and measure cable distance with other components on the 3D map, however, compared to the technology aerophotogrammetry, the cost of the equipment is at least 50 times higher and requires a complex and time-consuming processing of the point cloud to properly classify the elements on the map (identify what is a stone, tower, vegetation, river or building, for example ) for later analysis and measurements.
To attend EASA standards for BVLOS corridor Drone flights and at the same time offering efficiency and efficacy to offer services to customers at lower costs, we have developed a new Drone aerial-photogrammetry solution:
We offer the service of collecting the images and delivering the 3D map / report to the Utility (turnkey) or through a partnership with the Drone operators.
SKY POWERLINES Service:
Drones. We rent or borrow SKY POWERLINES Drones to Utilities or Drone Operator.
Aerial photos. The Drone operator or customer takes aerial photos using our Drones and updates the encrypted data to the SKY POWERLINES SaaS platform (supported by AMAZON, GOOGLE ...).
Processing of the 3D Map / Report. The SKY POWERLINES SaaS platform processes the collected data and photos, generates the files in the .LAS format and makes the inspection report.
Delivery of the 3D Map / Report. The Energy Company downloads the reports of inspection.
