Standard for Mesh Deployment of Multi-Rotor Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Inspection of Overhead Transmission and Distribution, and Outdoor Substation Facilities

This standard specifies the technical requirements for mesh deployment of multi-rotor Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for inspection of overhead transmission and distribution, and outdoor substation facilities. The UAS consist of unmanned aircraft and the equipment necessary for the safe and efficient operation of the unmanned aircraft. The mesh deployment divides the inspection area into multiple inspection nodes, each containing multiple hangars and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Instead of executing one inspection task with a long distance and numerous facilities, the inspection task is decomposed into multiple node tasks, and every inspection node executes the inspection of facilities within its coverage. By mesh deployment, the inspection task can be decomposed and executed parallelly, and one inspection node executes multiple tasks simultaneously or consecutively. This standard specifies operational requirements for the workflow, procedure, technical parameters, segmentation of the inspection area, hangar location selection, UAV route planning, the leapfrog method, and inspection task scheduling.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


No Inactive-Reserved Standards
