Wireless Installation Inspections Detail
Drones provide a new, safer and more cost-effective way of getting critical visuals on wireless installations, whether they be on rooftops, monopoles, lattice poles or guy-wire towers.
Safety: Sending a worker up to hang on an installation is always an assumed risk. This risk can be mitigated by using a remote, flying camera, i.e. a drone. Also, in the case of most installations, operations can remain online during the inspection, as human health is not an issue.
Cost: When you consider the costs of labor, as well as equipment (mechanical lifts), the use of a drone becomes highly-attractive. Man-hours and lift costs disappear, as well as team mobilization. In fact, AeroVideoPros can provide live view feeds of the work in progress to remote locations, enabling RF teams to watch, request and receive the required imagery while it is being shot. In essence, the only person required to be on-site is the drone pilot.
Accuracy: Using the DJI Zenmuse X30 camera, 12mp photos and 4k video can be shot from angles otherwise considered unsafe, even for an experienced climber. Plus, a drone can shoot angles unavailable to someone on a lift or hanging on a tower, including panoramic overheads.
Multiple sites same-day: If a group of sites are within driving distance, multiple sites can be shot in a day. This is much easier than utilizing a lift, plus the fact that the site doesn't have to be shut down increases rapidity of output.
Wireless installations can potentially emit high levels of electromagnetic radiation. For this reason, AVP flies the DJI Matrice 210 RTK. Possessing its own proprietary GPS and having ingress protection for flight in nearly all weather conditions, this UAV enables AVP to perform inspections where others are unable to tread. This means the job gets done, on time, every time.
