Utilize Our Intelligence-Driven Technology for a 360-Degree View of Your Utility Assets
Why Choose Aethon?
Aethon's intelligence-driven services provide utility companies with a proactive look at their utility assets. Our advanced tools and technology help monitor assets by safely and accurately inspecting the condition of infrastructure, allowing utilities to conduct timely maintenance and help detect potential risks before they occur.
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.
Intelligent Data Acquisition
The AIC is controlled by an artificial intelligence (AI) system that understands each structure’s location. The AIC camera gimbal automatically captures perfect images while eliminating the need to hover.
Acquire More in
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.
Built to operate on Fixed Wing, Helicopter and UAS, the flexibility of this hardware coupled with advanced power line mapping software is used to optimize client's budgetary and scheduling requirements.
The AIC sensors have the unique ability to be fully customized to provide inspection imagery with a sub-millimeter resolution for a variety of distribution and transmission applications.
Aethon enables 21st century utility asset management by providing asset health information and analysis through remotely captured data. We believe technology can be deployed in ways that significantly improve the inspection services that are both necessary and of primary importance to utilities. Though technology alone is not enough. It is the capability to understand asset inspection needs, tailor the technology solution to fit those needs, and provide meaningful analytics in a cost-effective manner that drive the value expected by utilities.
At the core of our software development efforts is to decrease the time between data acquisition and delivery. This reduces the barrier of entry for our clients to capture vital information of their infrastructure. By commercializing sensors based on client's unique inspection needs, Aethon can optimize processes which previously took up to four weeks to a matter of days. Such efficiencies help simplify the aerial inspection process, thus warranting cost-savings and higher quality results for our clients.
In addition to performing asset inspections, we provide clients with accurate geospatial information, allowing them to develop timely environmental plans and easement information. We also provide inputs into asset risk models, conduct thermal ratings for conductors, and develop metrics like pole lean, sag heights, and key indicators that determine requirements for modifying existing or building new assets.
Data That Enables
Data captured by Aethon technology aims to maximize the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of clients' assets by helping them oversee each aspect of their structures' lifecycle. Every step laid out in the asset lifecycle is critical in maximizing utility ROI.
