Cell Phone Towers and Communication Tower Inspections

Tower climbing is one of the most dangerous jobs and UAVs are saving lives in this industry. 

Our mission is to assist associations, like NATE and its members, to create a universal Scope of Work and Standard Operating Procedures to standardize the process of cell tower inspections for our customers. 

If your company upgrades, maintains or operates cell towers, let's join forces and optimize your efforts. 

Thanks to companies like AT&T and Crown Castle, UAVs are quickly turning into a necessity in the Telecommunications industry.  Don’t get left behind, integrate UAVs into your workflow and stay ahead of the competition.

Reduce the risk of accidents by incorporating UAVs into cell tower inspection workflows, diminishing the number of tower climbs and keeping your staff safer.

Gain visual documentation of problems with high resolution imagery, allowing experts who are not onsite the opportunity to still assist in the resolution of issues.

Drone service providers of cell tower models

Construction

From site surveying to monitoring the progress of construction UAVs can be valuable tool for improving data capture to reduce costly variables associated with a construction project. Contact us to discover how UAVs can improve efficiencies during construction and upgrading of cell towers.

Surveying

When deciding to construct a new cell tower, surveying the site is an important part of the process. UAVs can provide accurate and cost-effective topographic mapping and contour mapping representations of any site. Providing the construction company, or Surveyor, with a high quality visual representation that is far superior to traditional services.

Infrared

The addition of an infrared inspection to a cell tower examination can provide data not visible during a visual review.  Faulty equipment and damaged wiring can be easily detached by thermal imaging catching problems early avoid costlier future repairs.

Equipment Upgrades

Modeling & Audits

UAV imaging and software allows us to provide our customers with the ability to create models of their cell phone tower assets. These models are valuable tools when planning to upgrade or maintenance the cell tower. In addition, we can provide audits of previous and upcoming upgrade and maintenance work to ensure the work was performed in accordance with the contract.
