Asset management, monitoring and maintenance made easy

Drones are rapidly replacing hazardous inspection and monitoring of telecommunication assets.

Telecommunication infrastructure is typically spread over vast distances and across often inhospitable terrain. Manual monitoring of these assets is difficult, expensive and often hazardous.

Highly maneuverable, rugged and brimming with payload technology from sensors and thermal cameras to 3D modeling and geospatial mapping, drones are rapidly replacing manual and costly human resources in telecommunications and making asset management easier and  maintenance more timely and affordable. In addition, providing new technological outcomes not thought possible even a few years ago.

Drones are communicating change and rapidly

As a telecommunications provider, if you’re not engaging drone technology across your infrastructure operations, you can be certain your competitors are!

Saving lives

Replacing hazardous human tower inspections, drones are not only minimising risk, but securing better imagery as well as more accurate and detailed data.

Asset monitoring

Drones are actively monitoring communication assets across vast - often inaccessible tracts of land from all elevations, angles and proximities to determine functional and timely maintenance requirements.

Line of sight determination

Drones are quickly and accurately identifying various obstacles that degrade radio signals such as trees, buildings and hill tops. This information can be used to determine the ideal location and height for new antennas.
