TRANSMISSION LINES

Gather data with unmanned aircraft to track maintenance needs.

PIPELINES

Inspect with unmanned aircraft to ensure pipelines are kept at peak operating capacity.

RAILWAYS

Collect aerial data with unmanned aircraft to create maps and imagery of assets.

ENERGY DISTRIBUTION

To ensure that energy distribution routes are consistent and effective, SkySkopes operates unmanned aircraft to conduct aerial inspections along these routes to provide actionable data for the energy sector to use when determining maintenance and replacement needs.

SAFETY IN MIND

SkySkopes maintains its fleet of aircraft to the highest standard and has a rigorous safety culture to ensure safe, successful missions for all flights. Company operations are fully insured to provide peace of mind to clients.

TRANSMISSION LINES

Ensuring that transmissions lines are operating at their peak capacity is critical to energy transmission companies. To transfer power through these lines, they must be free of fault and defects. Flying alongside these lines and capturing high resolution images of critical components can prevent premature failure of these components.

To do this, SkySkopes flights the Sharper A6 unmanned aircraft. This aircraft, made possible through a partnership with Sharper Shape, is  equipped with a highly advanced sensor payload. The Sharper A6 includes an automated analysis that produces actionable data with the benefit of reducing the cost to inspect miles of transmission and distribution lines.

SHARPER A6 SPECIFICATIONS:

– The world’s most advanced inspection drone
– Engineered for BVLOS operations
– Numerous BVLOS operations conducted internationally
– FAA Registered
– Extreme reliability with 4 cellular networks for long distance operations
– State of the art ground station for UAV automated mission planning

PIPELINES

Pipelines can carry steam, crude oil, and various other gases and liquids across long distances.  To ensure these distances are not compromised, thorough inspections must occur to meet standards.  Thermal images of pipelines can help detect leaks and other defects that result in a loss of revenue for energy companies.

RAILWAYS

Conducting railway inspections on a yearly basis is very crucial to maintaining a reliable track for all transportation. Current methods of rail inspections are performed with a railcar and crews conducting a visual inspection process. Implementing UAS into the current methods of inspection allow the operator to gather a tremendous amount of actionable data for civil engineering firms. That data can be take the form of high resolution imagery, contours, corridor mapping and 3D models of structures that SkySkopes creates and delivers to clients.
