Drone Bridge Inspection is the key to save U.S Taxpayers millions of dollars.
“Last year, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) rated one out of nine U.S. bridges as structurally deficient, and also found that the average age of the nation’s 607,380 bridges is currently 42 years. “
Bridges aren’t just an awesome metaphor, they play a massive role in Americas infrastructure. The society of Civil Engineers are concerned with the age of our countries bridges, and with an average age of 42 years, we all should be. Take a look at the amount of work and risk that it takes to inspect a bridge in the traditional way.
Our old methods of shutting bridges down, sending in huge machinery, and hire dozens of people to do a dangerous job are out-dated. Advancements in drones and film are here to save us heaping amounts of money, and save lives around the country.
Here’s another traditional inspection – this time, the hoover dam. As you can see, putting peoples lives in danger isn’t necessary.
By using 4k cameras attached to advanced drones, our precisioned drone professionals will easily and efficiently inspect bridges in a fraction of the time with a fraction of the cost. It’s really that simple. Our drone operators record the entirety of the bridge inspection and send it to engineers to review. With 4k cameras, it allows the engineer to magnify the image exponentially to have a clear and focused image allowing them to decide on the steps to take to make efficient repairs.
Here’s the future. By utilizing drones, we will be able to offset the cost of traditional bridge inspection by 50% and utilize the savings to ensure that all of our bridges are safe and pass strict code.
