Virginia Secretary of Technology visits HAZON
Kilmarnock, VA – Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson had the opportunity to get a first-hand account of unmanned system operations in the field inspecting power-lines and towers for Dominion VA Power. HAZON was excited and honored to have the opportunity to demonstrate its safe, effective and efficient inspection operations to Secretary Jackson. HAZON recently began proof of concept operations on energized lines, which is already proving very useful for locating potential problems more proactively and safely.
“The goal is to provide a robust capability to precisely inspect critical infrastructure and improve the reliability of service while mitigating risk to workers in a more cost effective way” stated HAZON CEO, David Culler. “We greatly appreciated Secretary Jackson taking the time out of her very busy schedule to see our UAS operations in the field. Her leadership and support is crucial to advancing this new and exciting technology.”
Secretary Jackson noted that Virginia is well positioned to provide ideal locations and conditions for the unmanned systems industry, including the skilled workforce required to support these new job requirements. HAZON continues to be at the forefront of helping develop and lead this industry for Virginia and the nation.
HAZON was invited by the Secretary to support the workings of the new cyber unmanned commission, which will help Virginia pioneer the Cyber-UMS industry by bringing together leaders from both industries.
“We’re always excited to be a part of helping shape and develop UAS capabilities for commercial and public good, and having Virginia leadership supporting this industry on several fronts is a positive sign that we’re moving in the right direction”, stated HAZON President of Transportation and Energy, Duke Dietz.
