Data is an invaluable asset and requires management by professionals who are committed to quality assurance (QA) and information security. When evaluating drone service providers for utility inspection, it’s important to understand how a standardized QA program contributes to overall service quality and operational success.
As it applies to unmanned aerial systems (UAS) utility inspections, an established QA program ensures that all aspects from pre-flight planning through data delivery are managed with accuracy and attention-to-detail. This translates to scalable, cost-efficient, and results-driven drone inspection solutions.
- Review customer assets and project requirements
- Develop data capture plan to align with deliverables
- Coordinate with operations to define flight requirements
UAS QA inspectors work cross-functionally to enable continuous process improvement and project success.
