Utility Study Demonstrates Benefits of Drones and IoT-Enabled Visual Software to Ensure Safer, More Reliable Power Grid

DENVER, March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Cyberhawk, a global leader in drone-based inspections and creator of iHawk, a cloud-based asset visualization software platform, has released a case study that examines how its drone-based visual assessment and data management of SSEN Transmission’s high-voltage network is helping the utility maintain a safe, reliable and secure power grid.
