PICAYUNE — Aerotec, LLC, has introduced its second-generation airborne LIDAR-based mapping product for identifying and locating vegetation in the vicinity of electric power transmission rights-of-way that presents a significant risk to the operation of the transmission lines’ conductors.

A featured component of the vegetation management product is a handheld unit that provides the utility forester with the capability to measure, locate, analyze and report the vegetation violation on-the-spot, with a two-second response time, using a single-shot of the handheld unit’s laser rangefinder.

Using Aerotec’s 3-D models of the rights-of-way, the utility forester is able to use and re-use the right-of-way models with the handheld unit to re-inspect, conduct on-site analysis, map and report on vegetation violations well into the future.

"With this product, we have realized our goal of adding long-term future value to the initial airborne LIDAR data capture, modeling, analysis and mapping of electric power transmission vegetation violations inventory results," said Jim Dow of Aerotec.
