Aerial Infrared Mapping (AIM)

Infrared imaging is certainly not a new technology. Until recently however, the majority of applications were for various military activities. In 1987, San Joaquin Helicopters decided to research how a FLIR Systems Infrared Camera might enhance service to our electric utility customers. We located faults in power lines, insulators, joints and substations, and continue to monitor their systems. Periodic aerial patrols of remote lines, substations and receptacles have saved provider companies -- and their customers -- countless dollars by finding problems before they become catastrophes.
