Transmission and Distribution

Transmission & Distribution

Our aerial intelligence enables more informed maintenance decisions and minimizes down-time. We conduct detailed thermal and visual inspections of transmission towers, distribution lines, and substations for regular maintenance and disaster response. More accurate and versatile than helicopters, our methods capture data while avoiding the hazardous manhours involved with climbing and buckets.


Wind Turbine Inspections

Our aerial inspections reduce man-hours and turbine downtime for maintenance checks by over 75% and can enhance asset productivity by detecting issues before they become failures. We provide quick and accurate insight into the health of your wind farm. Streamline your O&M processes by relying on Measure’s blade experts for efficient data collection and engineering review.


Buildings & Construction

Our aerial inspections produce useful and comprehensive data while reducing hazardous man hours and increasing cost efficiency. We conduct site assessments, construction monitoring, and structural inspections for all types of job sites, commercial buildings, and infrastructure. We provide decision makers with the ability to easily assess sites, track construction progress, and make informed decisions regarding structural repairs.


Mapping Services

Quickly review the project area to identify hazards, plan operations and avoid surprises during critical tasks. Stitched, measurable, geolocated orthoimagery significantly enhances project execution and client services. Our accurate, affordable aerial data acquired via drone-based photogrammetry can provide topographical analyses and stockpile measurements for insight into your project.
