“From the perspective of more than 40 years as a Transmission Standards Engineer, Reliability Leader, R&D Project Manager and Engineering Consultant, where I long ago qualified and used the Ohmstik on the FPL Transmission system, I recognize the following key benefits that electric utilities, the public, and the PUC’s will realize from Linebird’s method:
  • Increased safety of power lines: Reduction of hazards to the public, linemen, and liability.
  • Reliability and resiliency: Preventing customer outages and fault current damage to expensive capital equipment such as circuit breakers and transformers.
  • Quantifiable of risk of failure: Facilitates planned mitigation instead of ‘get a crew out there and put it back up!'”

“I would say that if a UAV could make this measurement reliably, it would surely replace situations where helicopters currently make this measurement manned from both a safety and cost perspective.”

“A safer and more economical deployment of resistance measurement, like what you’ve envisioned with your prototype unmanned system, is just what this market has been waiting for.”
