High-resolution imagery can expedite the inspection process, saving man-hours and providing decision-makers with actionable data. Aircraft can also carry thermal cameras, moisture and CO2 detectors, or can be set up to transmit a live inspection feed to anywhere in the world. Aircraft equipped with multiple sensors can collect data more quickly and accurately, resulting in immediate products for analysis.
In the end, the primary purpose of a UAS is to identify issues, improve conditions, and reduce risk. UAS help accomplish this and provide facility managers with a valuable tool for resource management. They deliver a more cost-effective, comprehensive product and help improve an organization’s overall safety program by protecting inspectors from unnecessary exposure to potentially hazardous situations.
