Polish UAV manufacturer, FlyTech UAV, has launched an innovative photogrammetry-based algorithm for transmission line modelling.
It says it has been developed to replace costly helicopter inspections.
FlyTech UAV recently launched Innovative long-range electric power lines modeling with fixed-wing aerial data. The solution aims to cut down on the time spent in the field and promises significant cost reduction.
The Polish technology company says it introduced the service for power line management with the use of fixed-wing UAV, with the aim of cost reduction and streamlining the operations.
The algorithm allows for power line reconstruction and preparing the LiDAR-quality data with aerial imagery only, which dramatically reduces total labour costs, in comparison to methods employing helicopter and LiDAR.
FlyTech UAV’s flagship product is fixed-wing BIRDIE, dedicated to surveying, agriculture and power engineering.
It is equipped with the full-frame camera and PPK allows for achieving survey-grade accuracy. Long flight time and unlimited cellular connectivity ensure the efficient coverage.
Also, the drone recently got innovative VTOL update for the most demanding terrain conditions.
The newly-launched service helps utilities owners to maintain properly cleared transmission lines, and consequently to increase the safety and limit breakdowns or wildfires.
