Why Choose Aethon?
Aethon Aerial (Aethon) enables 21st century utility asset management by providing utilities with critical asset health information and analysis through remotely captured data.
Recognizing that utilities need to take essential steps to ensure their networks are resilient to interruptions, Aethon supports clients with asset lifecycle management which helps mitigate potential issues and improves infrastructure reliability. Reliable power not only impacts a utility's operations and bottom line, but it also affects the ability of individuals and businesses to efficiently operate throughout the day.
Knowing when a particular asset or component will fail and how to fix it before it becomes critical is essential for utilities looking to reduce asset downtime and maintenance costs.

Data captured by Aethon technology aims to maximize the productivity and cost effectiveness of assets by enabling clients to oversee every aspect of their structures' lifecycle. From asset planning to construction and commissioning, to operating and maintenance, to asset rebuild or retirement, each stage is crucial in optimizing asset ROI.
With an average life expectancy of 40-50 years, many utility grids date several decades, which means proactively inspecting assets on an average cycle of five years can help utilities assess asset health and ensure they are performing safely and at optimal levels.
Aethon's multi-disciplined capability and multi-year condition reports help identify and monitor the condition of assets.
Utilities can mitigate risks and unplanned costs with Aethon's solutions including aerial inspections, IR/UV inspections, and vegetation analysis.
Aethon's offerings can answer essential questions about utility assets such as which components will fail, which data is necessary to be collected, how many inspection images are necessary, and how often inspections need to be conducted.
Let Our Proprietary Technology Take
Your Utility Business To Higher Grounds
Aethon's introduction of the Autonomous Image Capture (AIC) sensor and automated LiDAR processing is improving the efficiency of aerial inspection and LiDAR projects. This proprietary technology improves the cost and technical sustainability of asset and vegetation management activities, thereby enhancing the grid's reliability, safety, and efficiency over the long term.
Our personnel are highly experienced in the collection and processing of airborne imagery and LiDAR, having successfully pioneered the creation of the hardware and software and its application to both vegetation management and infrastructure inspection.
AIC and LiDAR sensors are operated simultaneously so utilities can obtain the data required for visual inspections and vegetation management, eliminating the need for separate acquisition programs.
By optimizing our acquisitions with AI controlled gimbals, we are able to eliminate hovering above structures which reduces the flight hours required. This improves costs and delivery time.
The AIC sensors have the unique ability to be fully customized to provide inspection grade imagery with a sub-millimeter resolution for a variety of distribution and transmission applications.
The AIC is controlled by an artificial intelligence (AI) system that understands each structure’s location, allowing it to automatically captures perfect images while eliminating the need to hover.
Built to operate on Fixed Wing, Helicopter and UAS, the flexibility of the hardware coupled with advanced power line mapping software is used to optimize budgetary and scheduling requirements.
