Inspection agreement with utility
Cyberhawk Innovations has signed a three-year deal to inspect and survey parts of Scottish and Southern Energy's network.
The framework agreement is worth a six-figure sum to the Livingston company.
Previously Cyberhawk has used its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to carry out inspections on cooling towers and electricity pylons plus conduct topographical land surveys for SSE.
The UAV can be equipped with high definition cameras, thermal imaging devices and other sensors to capture data.
Douglas Walker, managing director of Cyberhawk Innovations, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have won this contract.
"SSE has put its faith in us to deliver a highly professional inspection service and it pays testament to the skills and dedication of the Cyberhawk team that we have secured this substantial contract.
"We have shown that using the UAVs offers many advantages over manual inspection. The UAV can inspect areas of the structure which would be impossible to photograph using conventional methods."
Nigel Ellis, business manager at SSE said: "Cyberhawk has proven its capabilities on a number of assignments from a technical and operational perspective.
"We therefore have the confidence to agree a long-term contract with them to provide aerial inspection services across the group."
Cyberhawk was founded in 2008 and currently employs 14 people.
