RUGBY STATION INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ROOF INSPECTION
SectorLand & Rail
Throughout the inspections, it was essential that the railway lines stayed open to the public, which was achieved through coordination with Network Rail and Virgin Trains.
The company’s framework agreement with Network Rail was one of the many reasons Cyberhawk was chosen for this project, along with its Congested Areas Operating Safety Case (CAOSC) permission to fly UAVs in urban areas and in close proximity to structures, vehicles and people.
Cyberhawk was called upon to carry out an internal and external structural inspection of the Rugby rail station roof in Warwickshire, England.

Alternative methods for carrying out this scope of work, such as ground camera and scaffolding, would have taken weeks to complete – or longer when the erecting and dismantling of structural supports is considered.
Cyberhawk used a combination of its internal and external UAVs to capture close visual images of the inside and outside of the roof, supporting structure and to produce a detailed inspection report.
Cyberhawk completed the project in two days, with Network Rail reporting significant cost and time savings.
