safer, streamlined processes

Drones are a cost-effective and safe way for utilities to inspect wind, solar, boilers, transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment, assess storm damage, and support construction and repair. Drones are beginning to replace costly conventional inspection methods with safer, streamlined processes that are more precise and efficient. Operating safely and efficiently around critical infrastructure is a specialized task that Juniper Unmanned has mastered over the years. There are many ways that drones are transforming utility and energy operations:

  • Visual and thermal inspections of T&D equipment (Severity Reports)
  • Survey-grade maps for siting transmission lines for wind and solar (Point Cloud, DTM, Planimetrics)
  •  Vegetation management inspections for T&D rights-of-way
  •  Coal stockpile volume calculations
  • Ash pond inspections
