    Press Release:
    Industrial Aerobotics approved to service the Electric Utility industry

    March 24 2015

    Industrial Aerobotics has been awarded an FAA Section 333 Exemption for UAS inspection use in the Electric Utility industry. This

    exemption is the first of its kind as Industrial Aerobotics is not an actual electric utility, but a UAS Inspection service provider to electric utilities.

    Industrial Aerobotics evolved out of the Electric Utility world based on the emerging needs of the industry. Based on this evolution, Industrial Aerobotics has a unique understanding of the Bulk Electrical System, its operation and regulations, and how to best utilize UAS’s to cut costs, increase reliability, and improve safety.

    Over the past decade, Electric Utility Companies have become lean by trimming non-critical bloat and are extremely cautious where they allocate resources. Where Industrial Aerobotics stands out is in its ability to shield the client from the non-“value add” work. Utilities have no desire or need to maintain a fleet of drones, pilots and data analysts. What is important to the Utility is the real-time, critical, operational data.

    The Utility provides the assets to be inspected, and Industrial Aerobotics provides a detailed report with the anomalies detected. Industrial Aerobotics handles the myriad of UAV details from vehicle and payload selection, assembly, and maintenance, through FAA certification and COA approvals, to Piloting, data capture and data analytics and analysis.

    Need high-resolution photos and videos of Transmission Towers and Lines to display in your operations visualization too or GIS system? Industrial Aerobotics has already analyzed, developed and tested the solution and can deliver the data. Need Thermal Images of Substation equipment or Solar Arrays? Been there, done that; Data Delivered. Need a Lidar scan for Vegetation Management planning? Industrial Aerobotics can, and has delivered.

    “We are extremely excited to have this unique opportunity” said Industrial Aerobotics Owner John Wolcott. “We are excited not only for our employees who have worked so hard to get us to this point; but also for the industries we support. Unmanned Aerial Inspections have been proven all over the world to increase reliability and safety while at the same time reducing costs; and we are thrilled to be one of the first companies in the U.S. to be able to offer this service.”

    Again, congrats bud!

    Thanks Sleepy. We are very excited to take our R&D Customers into actual implementation. It has been a long hard road getting approval, but we are past that and are moving forward.

    We are always building our potential pilots list as we get clients across the country. If you have any FAA pilots license (Sport pilot through ATP) and have multirotor experience please visit our website and send us a message with your credentials and we will add you to our database.

    Thanks again sleepy and DRONEON!
