Geolocate Insulator and Bracket Damage

Conduct UAV power line inspections of transmission lines, structural and component inspections and view issues on a map by geolocation. Prioritize T&D sector repairs based upon damage density and severity, improving maintenance crew cost efficiency, productivity and impact.


Monitor Vegetation Encroachment

Use drone electrical inspection imagery to compare and audit conditions over time to detect and prioritize encroachment issues. Overlay and compare detailed orthomosaic maps to track progressing issues and predict future mitigation requirements.

“Since 2019 Optelos has delivered significant improvement to our Transmission Network Inspection processes. The platform was customized to identify specific transmission network conditions and streamline the inspection and remediation process, reducing remediation times by -70% and increasing inspection capacity +300%.”
