Consolidated
Linear Inspection
of Utility Assets

One Flight, Many Apps

For providing a comprehensive examination of all assets within a utility corridor, nothing comes close to Sharper Shape’s Consolidated Linear Inspection (CLI) service. Consolidated inspections simultaneously captures a range of useful data types in a single flight with our Sharperscope Drone 5.0 multi-sensor payload. Once the drone is back on the ground, Sharper Shape’s Pilot application manages the transfer of data to our cloud-based processing system, where a combination of human inspectors and intelligent software algorithms quickly develop actionable inspection reports.

Software

CLI relies on the Sharper Inspector for examining visual data and building a database of inspection notes. LiDAR data is automatically evaluated for vegetation management issues. The Sharper Viewer serves as the method by which the customer can view and interact with inspection reports generated by both the Sharper Inspector and the Sharper Clearance Analyzer.

Effortless Automation

The Sharper Pilot supports drone field crews by delivering automated flight planning, autonomous flight control of the drone, and post-flight data management functions.

Effortless Automation

Data Consolidation

The Sharper Inspector greatly accelerates visual data analysis by grouping all images and LiDAR data together based on geolocation, and presenting them side by side in a highly customizable display.

Effortless Automation

Automated Analysis

The Sharper Clearance Analyzer has the unique ability to algorithmically detect and classify vegetation issues throughout the inspection zone. Issues detected are colorized to visually highlight all identified areas of concern.

Effortless Automation

Easy Integration

Inspection data can be digitally transferred to most customer’s existing Asset Management or Geographical Information Systems.

Effortless Automation

Outcome

Sharper Shape’s Consolidated Linear Inspection service delivers a range of maintenance and engineering information – as well as detailed vegetation management data – all within the responsive online Sharper Viewer application. Optionally, data can be output in a variety of formats to fit into the customer’s existing maintenance workflows.
