Drone data collection and processing process

  • The automated data collection is planned based on the customer’s topological data (GIS).
  • Objects and their precise locations are recorded in the on-board system of the drone.
  • Completely automated data collection.
  • The system generates error reports and attribute lists at the object level, such as electric poles.
HAWK system’s official ISO-certified drone partner is Alerion. We have local offices in several continents and can therefore provide data collection in the following continents (USA, Europe, South America).

Note: It is recommended to count 2-3 poles per kilometre on high voltage networks and 8-10 poles per kilometre on medium voltage networks.

Special corona discharge sensor for drones

Corona discharge

  • Corona is a luminous partial electrical discharge due to ionization of the air. Corona is often a sign of a defect of the electrical apparatus.
  • Corona will appear when the local electric field exceeds a critical value: Ecritical = 24-30 kV/cm
  • Pinpointing corona discharge and addressing potential equipment failure can guarantee the reliable operation of the electrical critical assets.
  • Additional effects of Corona is energy loss, electromagnetic interference, audio noises and radio interference.

Frequently asked questions

If you have any question, please let us know, and we will publish the answer.

Based on the battery capacity, the drone can fly tens of kilometers based on the data provided, all in complete safety thanks to the LIDAR sensor, which makes it suitable for avoiding collisions with landmarks. However, the legal environment regulates this seriously, so the regulations in most countries only allow the drone to be kept within line of sight. Therefore, it is greatly influenced by weather conditions and topography as well.

This is a priority development at our company, so we can confidently say that this will happen soon. We have already tested the real-time error detection on quite a few objects, soon the error signal can also arrive in the central system in real time.

Yes. If we receive the GIS data and the images also contain the appropriate Exif data, we can easily integrate them into the HAWK System platform.

Our system was created specifically for the standard error type valid for all network operators. This helps us to always tailor the system to the specific needs of the given customer – the condition of which is a sufficient amount of teaching samples and a precise technical description of each error type.
