NO TRACK POSSESSION, NO WORKING AT NIGHT AND LIMITED LANE CLOSURES
Viaducts and Bridges
Cyberhawk’s UAV inspection technique offers structural inspections of viaducts and bridges which is faster, safer and provides better quality reports than conventional access methods, aiding improved analysis.
Our inspection solution reduces costs by removing the requirement for large areas of scaffolding, rope access or elevated platforms and eliminating track possessions or lane closures. It also improves safety by reducing the need for working at height and/or at night.
All inspections are carried out by a team of trained pilots and highly experienced inspection engineers who produce comprehensive inspection reports. Detailed orthophotos of the elevations are also created to aid defect location and sizing and accurate 3D point clouds are created to provide accurate dimensioning.

No on-road or track-side working
Significant Cost Savings
Cyberhawk can inspect difficult to access structures in a fraction of the time of traditional access methods such as rope access, scaffolding or elevated platforms. Subsequent tactile examination is only required in targeted areas.
Removes or reduces the need for track possessions or lane closures resulting in reduced track access or lane closure costs.
Reduced mobilisations to site, as drone data can be used for both visual inspection and also structural measurements (from accurate 3D point clouds).
Fully qualified inspection engineers on every assignment. An intermediate report provided before leaving site, followed by a high quality, full engineering inspection report on the condition of the structure within two weeks of the inspection.
Experienced UAV pilots, trained to our industry-leading four-level program, with extensive experience on every assignment.
More than 25,000 commercial industrial inspection flights completed.
Improved Health & Safety
Small (2kg and 1m), unmanned, battery operated UAVs reduce the need for people to be placed in potentially dangerous locations, such as at height.
Removes the need for track side or road side operations.
Removes the need for working at night.
Detailed risk assessments and method statements prepared before every assignment.
