Drones aren’t just for snooping, spying, stealth attacks from above, and pranks anymore. The oft-maligned technology is now in the business of saving lives, by going where humans can’t go without taking on considerable risk.
Industrial inspection is the niche that screams out for remotely operated aerial vehicles, as they are sometimes known. Jobs that once required people dangling from ropes, or atop precarious scaffolding, are now about as risky as playing a video game. One of the biggest causes of industrial fatalities comes from falls from heights. Our technique is reducing the need for people to work at height.
That technique involves more than sending up a drone. We use two highly skilled employees for every job. One is a trained drone pilot, the other a trained engineer.
There are many examples of the benefit of drones vs. traditional approaches. The Department of Transportation (MDOT) recently completed a study on the benefits of using drones to inspect roads and bridges. MDOT estimated that a standard bridge deck inspection costs $4,600, takes eight hours, a crew of four people and heavy equipment. The same inspection with a drone takes just two people and two hours, at a significantly lower cost.
