NM Group has announced an innovative new service, Patrol+, that is designed to enhance patrol and safety inspection activities undertaken by helicopter. Using the latest imaging systems and lightweight LiDAR technology, alongside NM Group’s sophisticated processing technology, the service collects geospatially located asset information and enables accurate and cost effective detection of: Vegetation encroachments/infringements, Hardware defects on wooden poles and steel structures, Safety issues on the line or corridor, Accurate location of structures, and more. The service enhances existing patrols by taking the geospatially located data from the aircraft and exporting it through a series of analyses to provide a simple set of intelligent defect reports. The results are then presented in such a way that they can be actioned via the work management system and integrated into the asset management system. Relevant, functional reporting better informs maintenance teams and improves the efficiency of planned field activities.
