Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) can help in improving safety and decreasing costs in the inspection of industrial plants such as oil and gas pipings. UAV-based inspection brings endurance requirements and safety constraints to the inspection system as a whole. This article focuses on the ground support segment of the HYFLIERS inspection systems and more particularly it looks at effectively and efficiently supporting the inspection data flow and at competent and safe power supply.
