An aerial patrol of a powerline network is an integral part of managing any electrical network. As a quick conditional assessment of the network the aerial patrol provides a comprehensive top down view of the assets, which exposes components which cannot be quickly assessed from the ground or quickly with drones.
Oberon Aviation have worked tirelessly to develop a GIS cell, which prepares the electrical data into comprehensive fly data, assessing the risks and hazards associated with each sortie. The GIS cell can also ensure that reports are tailored to suite the requirement of network operators.All Oberon Aviation Services aircraft have been structurally modified to carry LiDAR equipment and simultaneously camera equipment.
