Utility Assessment Executive Summary
L3Harris recently conducted its third annual Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and Transmission and Distribution (T&D) survey, drawing worldwide responses from over 100 executives and professionals from utilities and firms supporting utilities.
To continue benchmarking several key industry statistics, we asked many of the same questions as in prior years. New questions were also introduced to capture the quickly evolving state of the industry. Our objective was to explore industry perspectives in greater depth and gain insights into the progress on important topics such as:
- How utilities collect and use imagery
- Who performs T&D inspections
- How imagery is being used and shared across organizations
