Satellite and drone monitoring

Electrical grid infrastructure
monitoring
Using drones to monitor power transmission lines as well as automated data processing provide timely electrical grid infrastructure status and fault information.
Features
Inspection of the electric route, pylons, wires and wire ropes, overhead line hardware, insulation, the upper section of pylons and cross arms
Determining pylon coordinates
Identification of potentially dangerous trees and shrubs
Identification of illegal buildings and other unauthorized objects within the protected zone
Determining the scope and conditions for clearing works and site expansion
Determining the geodesic coordinates and height of pylons
Geoportal
The drone data is processed and accumulated on a personalized geoportal.
Visualization in 2D and 3D
The geoportal provides 3D and 2D data visualization based on a digital model of terrain and metric specifications of overhead transmission lines including wire saggings. The geoportal also displays public resources data.
Information systems support
In addition to the monitoring results, the geoportal can display the data received from other information systems: dispatch control systems, maintenance and repair management systems, and other sources.
Compatible with all devices
Geoportal does not require any customized software and works with any operating system on any device: personal computers, tablets or smartphones.
Reports
Data can be presented as industry-standard tabular reports.
Results
Drone monitoring makes it possible to not only identify natural threats and technical malfunctions, but also to simulate potential risks—for example, sagging of wires under the influence of wind and high temperatures
