UTA Launches Drone-Based Tower Inspection Service
Monday, May 21, 2018 | Comments

The United Tower Alliance launched a national unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) tower inspection service. The UTA and its 18 performance partners are ready to fly UAV tower surveys across the United States.

The UTA network operations center (NOC) has been operational since March, and performance partners have been busy training operators at the 2018 UTA Flight Academy. “Performance partners are stable firms whose employees are technical experts around towers,” said Ean Mercer of UTA. “Anyone can fly a drone, but our commercial operators are also experienced tower professionals who have the access, familiarity and equipment to solve problems. They are also equipped with software tailored for infrastructure needs.”

The alliance has custom software that delivers data to the client with security. “We came up with a method that uses our strengths to capitalize on the safest and most efficient people in the business,” said Jason Lerew, UTA operations manager.
