Innovative  Repeatable  Inspections


GridHawk Aviation provides a safe, cost effective, and easily deployed alternative to traditional manned aircraft. Our UAVs carry cameras that produce high resolution

images as well as thermal images. They are equipped with transmitters enabling

sharing of live footage, and can fly within a few of meters of energized power lines

therefore eliminating employee exposure.





GridHawk Aviation deploys the latest and most advanced UAV and Camera payloads in conjunction with certified UAV pilots and linemen to deliver superior reporting of your assets. Our high clearance off-road vehicles are customized and fully self-contained to allow our inspection crews to be self-sufficient in the field. This allows us to perform inspections in extremely rugged terrain. We are even capable of multiple night stays on the right of way to reduce travel costs associated with remote locations. By utilizing journeyman linemen as pilots, we have unique knowledge of construction standards and techniques. This gives us the ability to make critical decisions while in the field which phases out information lag.
