Communication and transmission towers are continually stressed due to various equipment and environmental loading conditions (wind, ice, seismic, etc.). To ensure the structural integrity and safety of these towers, periodic inspections are required by skilled inspection personnel. Inspections may also be necessary shortly after a significant weather or seismic event.
Smart Tower® is a proprietary, remote SHM system enabled by cloud-data intelligence to support tower maintenance and asset management. This intuitive, scalable system offers continuous monitoring and trigger-based alerts to help prioritize inspection response and maintenance schedules.
The Smart Tower solution is comprised of:
Leveraging remote sensing with data transmitted wirelessly to our secure cloud servers, Smart Tower provides direct measurements of tower motions and enables analysis of conditions including, but not limited to,
All of these capabilities enable tower operators to maintain their asset portfolios more efficiently through data-driven insights and diagnoses.
