Drone / sUAS

The unremitting pace of technological advancements now allows planners and engineers to perform many tasks in a safer, more cost-efficient manner than ever before. Recognizing the continuous need for infrastructure inspection and maintenance, as well as the limitation of federal, state and local budgets, Hoyle, Tanner has made the investment in sUAS technology. Through the use of sUAS, commonly referred to as drones, we are developing innovative solutions to data collection, infrastructure inspection and public outreach services.

Hoyle, Tanner provides sUAS services that range from airport obstruction analysis, to bridge inspections, to roadway data collection, to earthwork quantity measurement. Other services that can be offered include wildlife hazard identification, security fence monitoring, roof inspection, traffic monitoring, post flood stormwater data collection, and other infrastructure inspection and analysis as-needed. The ability to show decision makers – as well as the public – high-quality images of the targeted infrastructure leads to better resource prioritization when making decisions about repairs and replacements.

Hoyle, Tanner has multiple rotary wing sUAS platforms, FAA-certificated remote pilots, and the experience and knowledge to provide both the flying and data-handling tasks. Our in-house technical experts and the sUAS team work directly with our clients on every mission. We understand that public safety is paramount and each of our missions are implemented in a FAA-compliant manner. We are confident we have identified service areas where drone technology can improve project quality, and reduce time and cost for our clients.
