Value of Drones for Cell Tower Inspections
Higher-resolution visual inspections than ground-based inspections
Greatly reduce man hours and costs by automating inspections
Safely assess the condition and orientation of all components of cell towers
Inspections done from a safe distance
Towers remain functional during inspection
Increase efficiency due to data accuracy and reliability, live streaming and zoom/thermal/4k capabilities
In the past, doing a cell tower inspection required a lot of heavy equipment to be brought to a Cell Tower site, as well as, a person climbing the tower structures, which can have lead to potential risks, injuries and huge insurance costs for the company. One company that has already taken on drone technology for inspections is AT&T, but due to their own complications, they found making a lot of mistakes. When performing a cell tower inspection with a drone, it requires professional experience to move very close to the structure with an integrated camera, including a thermal imaging camera, with precision. Also, requiring a strong knowledge on which drones won’t be affected by electromagnetic interference, which can cause crashes.
Autonomous commercial drones are changing the way cell tower companies are auditing and inspecting wireless infrastructure by enabling the rapid, repeatable, and safe collection of high-resolution imagery and video of tower structures and equipment. ABJ Drone’s solution for cell towers helps operators and service providers safely operate drones, meet compliance requirements, and integrate aerial data with GIS and other business systems.
Telepro Drones has found an effective way to inspect and manage cell towers with improved speed, efficiency, safety and systems for data management. We have professional drone pilots with the proper drones, cameras, software and tools to get the job done right. We offer services including: drone cell tower inspections, thermal imaging, LIDAR, surveying/mapping.
Our Drones has effective thermal imaging and LiDAR techniques, and proprietary air frames to capture engineering-grade levels of accuracy for use in detailed point clouds and analytics for generations. Including, geo tagging to localize specific area of inspection (AOI) and a proprietary back end processing solution to enable companies with instant sourcing and identification.
