Remote Visual Inspection

Inspection + Testing

Drones are increasingly being used in Nondestructive Testing (NDT) because they offer a lot of benefits, especially for inspecting large or hard-to-reach structures and confined spaces.

  1. Access to Difficult Areas: Imagine trying to inspect a tall bridge or a big wind turbine. It’s not only hard but can also be dangerous for people to climb up there. Drones can easily fly to these high or awkward spots and carry cameras and sensors to take a close look.
  2. Safety: Since drones can go to places that might be risky for humans, they make the inspection process much safer. For example, inspecting the outside of a tall building or a large dam can be dangerous work. By using a drone, you can keep the inspection team safe on the ground.
  3. Speed and Efficiency: Drones can cover large areas quickly, much faster than humans on foot or using ladders and scaffolding. This means inspections can be done more frequently and thoroughly, which is great for keeping structures in good shape.
  4. Advanced Technology: Drones can be equipped with different types of technology, like infrared cameras, ultrasonic sensors, or laser scanners. These tools help detect problems like cracks, corrosion, or other damage without touching the structure.
