Aerial Transmission Line & Tower Inspection


  • Safe transmission tower inspection
  • No operational downtime
  • 3D models, High-res and thermal imagery
  • Corridor vegetation prediction


Uaviation provides transmission network managers with insights into their transmission line and transmission tower assets to avoid risk, improve safety and save money.

Tower and Component Inspection

Asset integrity and condition inspection, surveillance and health monitoring conducted using drones is essential for monitoring power line and transmission network condition.

Uaviation use state of the art camera and drone technology to inspect essential components. We can identify deterioration to timber components, rust or corrosion to metal components, tell-tale gusset warping, collapsed insulators and other poor performing components – all from unique angles and a safe distance.

Using Uaviation for transmission line and infrastructure inspections is fast and safe. It avoids the need to climb infrastructure or rope access. It prevents your asset inspectors being put at risk.

Defect analysis is conducted by experienced engineers and communicated to asset managers though detailed reports and 3D digital platforms.

Uaviation’s comprehensive transmission line & tower condition reports can also provide comfort to asset and utility managers through:

  • Geo-referenced defect documentation and analysis
  • Clear defect inventories
  • High-resolution aerial imagery
  • Monitoring change-over-time
  • Defect severity assessments
  • Rectification cost estimates

Infrared Thermal Inspection

Get advanced warning of components that are at risk of failing with the use of infrared thermal cameras.  Uaviation’s thermal inspections can detect corona discharge and differential heating of components to mitigate problems before they happen.

Corridor Survey

Be confident with the state of you transmission network corridors by populating your Electric Line Clearance Management Plans with the best data possible.

Assess the growth progression of trees, identify land use changes, vandalism, and other condition metrics within the corridor with Uaviation’s drone 3D mapping and surveying solutions. We can safely cover large lengths of corridor with high precision, categorising high risk areas for immediate action.
