Throughout the history of electrical distribution, utility companies have budgeted to spend millions of dollars each year on manual inspections of their transmission and distribution infrastructure. Quite often, in areas that are both difficult and dangerous to access.
Education is Knowledge
California Aerial Data Imaging provides a comprehensive course of education, training and consultation to the implementation of UAV program in your company. Our skilled and experienced teams of pilots, CFI (Certified Flight Instructors), Data Analysts, Topography Scientists, LiDAR Experts are using cutting edge technology in UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) will educate and train your team to vastly decrease inspection time and safety risks, while drastically cutting costs to perform these inspections. Our teams can help you company achieve remarkable SAIDI, SAIFI and CAIDI results
Cost: The cost of a two man UAV team, including UAV and all supporting equipment is a fraction the cost of conventional inspections, while dramatically increasing the rates at which an inspection can be performed.
Time: In the time a conventional boom truck and crew can get setup, a two manUAVteamcan be done, and move on to the next without disturbing traffic flow and increase your team's productivity and proficiency.
Safety: At no time will a UAV team encounter the risk of falling in their normal daily inspection.
Efficiency:Streamline collection and documentation of critical structural data.
Vegetation management: reduces the risk of wildfires.
Remarkable Results: in SAIFI, CAIDI and SAIDI
Avoid: Power outages and the inconvenience to your members.
Merely the costs of fuel and maintenance related to cumbersome and expensive conventional equipment is much greater and much less efficient than a complete UAV system. It's quite obvious that routine climbing and heavy equipment related inspections are quickly becoming obsolete.
UAS-ITD Implementation Training Documentation
An operation improvement achieved through strategic development
California ADI offers its UAS-ITD program (Implementation Training and Documentation) course taught by skilled, vetted and trained UAS pilots conducting daily T&D aerial drone inspections for major utilities companies around the nation. Our program will guide and instruct your employees to:
Obtain FAA part 107 certificate.
Efficiently fly commercial UAS and collect and document intelligent Data.
Safely and skillfully conduct flight missions around T&D lines.
****We partner with the most valuable software providers for data analysis****
Knowing the integrity of your inventory adds value to your assets
Increases operation productivity and solves the problem of reactive thinking.
Reactive thinking is a dangerous approach towards maintenance. And since the process of routinely scheduled assessment is a costly expense, and the common "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach is most often practiced. Implementing your own UAS program will most definitely solve that problem. By allowing your own team to examine, inspect and assess your inventory at any time without the need to hire third party contractors, your organization is safer and protected by the collection of intelligent data.
Our 10-Day course is authored by our CEO and founder Hani G, an expert on curriculum structure as a college course director for almost 17 years. Hani is also an accomplished and expert UAS pilot with exceptional safety skills. Our course is designed from the ground up to help utilities companies collect and maintain current and efficient data at any time.
Please contact us for course outline and to schedule. We look forward to discuss and answer all your concerns and questions.
