Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
Whether you are looking for an update on the condition of your company’s energy infrastructure, looking for project and construction data, or topographic mapping, Commonwealth’s Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drone services can help. Having UAS/UAV services makes project work more efficient by the convenience of using the UAV for a quick update for you on your systems’ conditions and any upgrades needed. A UAS streamlines the data collection process that companies typically use to collect data on their systems and infrastructure. We can use a UAV for mapping and environmental services to survey the land that will be used for a project or is being used for a project. UAS can help reduce the budget needed for projects and inspections, saving your company money on energy costs.
Rather than contracting a helicopter to perform inspections, a UAV can be up in the air inspecting your infrastructure and systems within hours for a fraction of the cost. The images taken from UAV are much better quality then photos taken from a helicopter and can be much closer to the structure than a helicopter can. We can use UAS for inspections on transmission and distribution lines, solar panel farms, wind turbines, plants, and substations. Utilizing UAS for inspections doesn’t present danger, keeping inspectors safe.
We have an in-house Professional Land Surveyor who can pilot the UAV safely. The UAV owned and utilized by Commonwealth is the DJI Matrice 200 Quadcopter. This technology can enhance the utilization of time for a project and make more room in your project budget because of the cost-reduction in the use of the UAS. UAS/UAV are an efficient, safe, and reliable technology that have the ability to improve projects.
