Automated Rapid Infrastructure Evaluation System (ARIES)
Lockheed Martin’s Automated Rapid Infrastructure Evaluation System (ARIES) Brings Situational Awareness and Intelligent Decision Support to the Commercial Utility Industry. By leveraging advanced remote sensing technologies with state-of-the art image and data analytics, ARIES provides a fast, reliable and automated solution for assessing damage to utility infrastructure. Whether assessing damage to overhead electric distribution lines following a crippling ice storm, or determining current or predicted impacts of floodwaters to critical gas or electric assets, ARIES rapidly turns collected aerial LiDAR and visual imagery into aggregated, actionable information to support crucial storm-mode decisions, including Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR) issuance, inventory analyses and crew sourcing / mutual assistance needs.
Data collection and processing mechanisms are scalable to allow for complete assessment of entire regions within 24 hours.
Compatible with a large portfolio of standard commercial LiDAR sensors.
Does not require a LiDAR data baseline to be captured in advance.
Automatically assesses damage to electric distribution and transmission systems. Identifies locations of water and associated impacted infrastructure.
Generates assessment reports aligned with the utility’s GIS data.
