Infrastructure and Site Monitoring
The power and pipeline-based energy sector regularly relies on comprehensive site surveillances to mitigate risks, carry out inspections, and ensure that everything is in working order. Aethon’s aerial and surface mapping services provide high-resolution imagery that can be consulted to ascertain site conditions and viable routing options. Our mobile and right-of-way mapping services that utilize LiDAR with multi-echo capabilities and multispectral imagery allow energy sector clients to perform environmental assessments and detect hazards quickly, accurately, and at a minimal cost compared to traditional aerial and land-based surveys. This allows for risk-free ROW routing and crossing selection, as well as more accurate power line condition monitoring and efficient vegetation encroachment analysis.
Sector Service Benefits:
Accurate and precise bare earth data for easier routing
Cost-effective and risk-free site surveys that keep employees out of harm’s way
Faster and more accurate damage and hazard detection
Quick generation of high-density point clouds built on real-time data to reference against as-built models
Our orthophoto services essentially behave as a means of stitching collected pieces of visual data together to form a clear, high-resolution map of a site or working area. We ensure consistent quality control throughout this process, employing experienced photogrammetrists to process and work with aerial and surface imaging derived from a UAV or manned aircraft operated by an experienced survey technologist. This initiative to maintain specific roles and not merge them enables for higher-quality results and increased efficiency compared to our competitors, who often task UAV pilots with orthophoto processing duties despite being ill-suited to the role. Utilizing a combination of high resolution LiDAR and photogrammetry imagery, RME clients can rely on quick, affordable, and extremely precise mappings every single time.
