Reasons to Request a Drone Inspection
Large equipment and tall structures often represent logistical challenges for an inspection team because of the difficulty in accessing elevated areas. Previous options for visually assessing a location hundreds of feet high were limited; either have a rope access technician descend from above or send a visual inspector up on a crane — the latter of which is expensive and both of which are potentially dangerous. Drone technology now affords inspectors a faster, safer, and more convenient alternative.
Unlike other inspection services, our drone units are piloted by the same people performing the inspections — namely certified technicians and professional engineers — who then draft their report based on the footage they have gathered over the flight. This inter-disciplinary approach allows ATS to provide solutions to any problem we locate during an inspection flight, whereas other services can only inform you about them. Our drone inspection capabilities are ultimately a tool ATS technicians can use to ensure that our clients receive the same quality inspection services that they have come to expect with the added benefits of increased efficiency and safety.
