Advantages Over Conventional Inspections
Long Span Inspections
By using Aeriosense software you can expect these benefits
Save Your Money!
Drone inspections offer massive cost savings when compared to traditional inspection methods. In some cases, clients have saved 80% compared to their previous inspections.
Don't Risk It!
Routine inspections of infrastructure reduces the chance of failure and saves money in the long run.
UAV inspections cause no downtime unlike some other methods such as close manned inspections where lines need to be de-energized.
Guaranteed High Quality Data!
By using UAVs, we are able to provide a more accurate and closer inspection from all vantage points. Our software captures images and video of the structures; fit with geolocation data for precise mapping.
We transform this data into useful information which traditional inspection methods can not provide. This includes Geographic Information Systems, precise locations of structures, and asset validation. All of this information can be stored for future reference and comparison.
Get Started Fast!
Aeriosense's mobile application makes it easy for pilots to learn and start flying our drones. This is due to the user friendly interface, automated flight, and safety and crash avoidence features.
Our UAVs are capable of taking off and landing in much smaller areas than helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft, and can fly in much tighter and more restrictive environments while being exponentially safer than traditional inspection methods.

UAS Pilot's Job Just Got a Lot Easier with Aeriosense Software
Aeriosense is proud of its software that allows drones to autonomously inspect and photograph the power corridors and infrastructure of electric utilities. Still, for a big project, even an intelligent drone is not enough. Someone has to plan the job, hire staff, ensure safety procedures are followed and basically take responsibility.
Long Inlet Crossing with BC Hydro
During a recent project we helped BC Hydro perform a condition assessment of a transmission line which included a unique crossing support structure. This was a great opportunity not only to get spectacular views of British Columbia coastline, but also to demonstrate another use case for drone inspections of hard to reach structures. Because this structure supports a transmission line crossing a 2 mile wide inlet, it needs to be very tall — around 500ft, to allow enough conductor clearance for marine traffic. It is also located on a rugged bluff accessible only by hiking in. This makes inspection of this structure particularly challenging using conventional approaches such as foot patrol or climbing inspection.
Green Ovations: Launching a Drone Inspection Program
Findings by Navigant Research suggest that, globally, electric utilities are expected to spend over $13 billion a year on drones and robotics by 2026; that’s a dramatic rise from about $2 billion currently. This trend can also be seen in Google searches for “drone inspection,” which has increased 20 fold in terms of web search volume in a span of eight years, from 2011–2019.
Navigating Remote and Rugged Terrain with Innergex
Over the summer, we had the chance to partner with Innergex on a local project. Innergex is a global independent renewable energy company, operating in Canada, the US, France and Chile. We worked with them to inspect a run-of-river, hydro electric operation on Ashlu creek, 35km outside of Squamish, BC.
We look forward to learning how we can work together
