Hazon reaches UAS inspection milestone

25th August 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hazon Solutions has surpassed a milestone of having inspected more than 100,000 linear feet of railway bridges using UAS, the company announced on 22 August.

Over the last 18 months, Hazon has conducted 64 bridge inspections across the eastern US. The inspections include complete coverage of the entire bridge using high-definition still frame, video and thermal imaging cameras. Hazon inspection teams fly within 15ft of the rail bridges, as well as under and inside bridge spans collecting imagery from angles previously unavailable.

The company has been performing the UAS-based inspections since early 2016 under contract with Norfolk Southern.

David A Culler, CEO and co-founder, Hazon Solutions, said: ‘This milestone is great for Hazon, but also great for the entire drone industry. Norfolk Southern has proven that UAS technology is a safe and effective tool for critical infrastructure inspections.

‘The experience and expertise that Hazon has gained on the UAS inspection front have been invaluable; it has allowed us to move beyond proof-of-concept and into the transition period of integrating drones into the daily workflow. It's a very exciting time for the entire drone ecosystem and the customers we serve.’
