Cyberhawk Innovations recently announced its new Asset Management Partnership, or AMP, a business opportunity that’s available globally to utility companies and utilities sector service providers that want to improve powerline asset management and safe operating practices—including remotely operated aerial vehicles (ROAVs), unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and drones.
Partnering companies will have access to Cyberhawk’s consultancy, inspection design and inspection center, according to a news release.
Cyberhawk’s asset management software, iHAWK, is key to delivering asset management information, according to the release, and enables users to easily access inspection information captured by ROAVs using a map based interface. iHawk also accommodates data from other sources, including rope access, helicopter and land-based inspections, for a comprehensive picture of the full asset portfolio, which is tailored to each customer’s specific requirements.
Cyberhawk will also provide pilot training, equipment and aviation support to partners, according to the release.
“This is a rare opportunity for companies operating in the utilities sector to extend their offering without incurring the usual cost and time investment,” said Craig Roberts, CEO at Cyberhawk, according to the release. “By combining the local knowledge and on-the-ground capabilities of partners with our engineering and inspection expertise and market leading software, we have the chance to embark upon a step change in asset management, taking aerial data collection and management to a new level.”
