A UASUSA Tempest provides a lower cost alternative to expensive full size aircraft for pipeline and power line inspection. They can also be flown into areas, altitudes, and weather conditions that are unsafe for manned aircraft. Because of its extremely efficient design, the Tempest provides a great alternative to other small UAS. Our aircraft will be able to stay aloft longer, and travel longer distances.
The Tempest is the perfect UAV for this application and can be fitted with cameras and other remote sensing equipment.
The Tempest can provide a live video feed for security inspection using an EO (daytime camera) or infrared camera. The onboard camera can also deliver high quality raster files suitable for post-processing into a geo-referenced mosaic of the entire line.
