Pinpointing high-risk components and generating a quantifiable record of your assets, while improving safety and reducing costs
Energy – solar panels, wind turbines, power lines
Transportation – roads, tunnels, highways, canals, bridges, airports
Telecommunications – cell phone towers, fiber optic cable installations
Structural – buildings, rooftops, chimneys
ARE provides an end-to-end solution to get you the intelligence you need to make informed decisions. With real-time results, a variety of top-of-the-line sensors, an impeccable safety record and true professionals gathering and processing your sensitive data, our team provides a world-class infrastructure inspection solution.
An inspection is only as good as the information that can be taken away from it and passed on to stakeholders. ARE, a leader in rail bridge inspections has expanded it’s engineering, and UAS solutions to infrastructure inspections across a multitude of markets. With proprietary inspection reports maintained by Professional Engineers, and FAA Remote Pilots capturing imagery with high-resolution sensors, ARE provides you with a crisp, clear look at your assets, in an organized, deliverable, and customized way to give you the most important information upfront.
LiDAR for Infrastructure Inspection
LIDAR is a technology for measuring positions of things rapidly:
- Urban environment – for measuring where everything on a street is
- Airports – for measuring the trees penetrating the approach path
- Utility right-of-way – for measuring the transmission line sag
- Highways – for measuring the slope for drainage
- Solar Fields – for measuring the solar panel alignment and vegetation shadowing
ARE provides LiDAR scans using high-quality sensors on top-of-the-line drones with an accuracy of 2-5 cm. We process the point cloud, classify it to your needs, store it for future reference and provide you with the information you need in a format that you can work with.

Thermal Imagery for Infrastructure Inspection
Infrared cameras can tell a different story than a visual inspection. Using the industry-standard FLIR camera system, thermal images can find hotspots and minute details often not apparent to the naked eye. Whether we’re looking for broken cells in a solar panel, temperature anomalies on a transmission line, a leaky roof top, or concrete delamination on a bridge or roadway, ARE’s certified thermographers and remote pilots can augment your asset inspections by capturing this extra level of data.
